Reliable & precise measurements – with great range!

OndoSense apex

For outdoor & indoor applications in various industries and in farming.

OndoSense reach radar sensor.

Precise distance measurement & reliable object detection.

Our radar sensor for distance measurements and object detection offers reliable, precise measurements with a long range. OndoSense reach is not only the most compact radar-based distance sensor: Its narrow opening angle of only 5° ensures particularly focused, interference-free measurements and enables a very small measuring spot. With a measuring frequency of 100 Hz, the radar sensor enables the seamless acquisition of measured values, even in demanding applications. Thanks to our particularly robust radar technology, the OndoSense reach distance radar is suitable for indoor and outdoor applications in agriculture, mining, transport and logistics, shipping or other industrial environments. Benefit from our innovative radar sensor technology for distance measurement, positioning and object identification, which combines robust measurement precision with maximum reliability!

The unique performance, user-friendliness and reliability of the OndoSense reach radar sensor for distance measurement are based on in-depth industrial experience and many years of radar expertise of the OndoSense founders and former Fraunhofer associates. Discover the advantages of our unique radar-based industrial distance sensor technology!

The most compact radar sensor – and other advantages!

Our precise radar sensor offers a wide measuring range, a narrow opening angle – and much more.

Most compact radar sensor

The OndoSense reach is the most compact radar sensor for distance measurements. It also suitable for confined spaces and short measuring distances.

High precision

With the OndoSense reach radar sensor for distance measurement and object detection you will benefit from a high measurement precision of ±1 mm.

Narrow opening angle

With an opening angle of only 5 °, which is very narrow for radar sensors, our radar distance sensor enables focused and reliable measurements with minimal interference.

Widest measuring range

Our OndoSense reach radar sensor for distance measurements and object detection offers a wide measuring range from 0.1 m to 20 m (more possible on request).

100 Hz measuring rate

For some applications, the measuring rate can be decisive: With the OndoSense reach distance radar sensor, you will benefit from a measuring frequency of 100 Hz.

Robust radar technology

Our OndoSense reach radar sensor for distance measurements and object detection enables reliable measurement results even in dust, fog, rain, smoke or adverse light.

Large range of applications – indoors & outdoors.

Our radar sensor for distance measurements supports numerous applications.

Detection of objects & vehicles

  • Detection of vehicles (trains, trucks, etc.)
  • Detection of objects outdoors, e.g. on conveyor belts
  • Non-destructive, non-optical presence detection of objects

Collision avoidance & position control

  • Detection of obstacles to avoid collisions, e.g. in car washing machines
  • Position control of crane booms, robotic arms, etc.
  • Height or passage control, e.g. for trucks

Distance measurement of objects & vehicles

  • Distance measurement to objects outdoors (e.g. from cranes to containers)
  • Controlling the distance of farm equipment to the soil
  • Measurement of distance to objects through packaging or plastic layers

Monitoring of fill levels & throughput capacity

  • Level monitoring of liquids and solids
  • Continuous outdoor measurement of river levels or wave heights
  • Throughput measurements of conveyor belts

Condition or status control via switching outputs

  • Configuration of 3 push-pull outputs for the classification and detection of objects
  • 2 control modes: single point (1 switching point) & window function (2 switching points)
  • Optimized output stability through hysteresis – e.g. in case of unsteady distance measurements in the vicinity of the switching point
