Industrial Measurement Solutions  present Microstar 1 microwave sensors, non-contact single axis microwave sensors designed to acquire vehicle speed and distance travelled.

The principle behind the Microstar 1 is the Doppler Effect where a comparison of the frequencies of the projected beam with the returning beam that has been reflected from the surface determines the speed. The Microstar 1 transmits two radar beams at 45º angles allowing for pitch angle error corrections providing optimum accuracy.

Specifications of Microstar 1 microwave sensors include:

  • Test range: 0.5 to 400 km/h
  • Offset: 300 to 1200 mm
  • Speed accuracy: <1% of test value, <0.5 km/h under 50 kph (each due to integration time of 200 ms)
  • Distance accuracy: <0.5% (<200m)
  • Reproducibility: <0.25% (distance test 200 m)
For reliable and accurate speed sensor solutions, Microstar 1 microwave speed sensors provide an efficient performance.
