Distance Measurement RaDist P60

Product Overview

RaDist P60 Sensor

MSO RaDist P60 distance sensor is based on 60.5 GHz pulse radar. The radar beam is focussed by a dielectric lens antenna. RaDist P60 features high sampling rate and high distance resolution/accuracy.

RaDist P60 is available in different variants with set-ups for different distance ranges from 20 cm to 200 cm. It features an analogue 4 to 20 mA and serial RS-232 output. The maximum sample rate depending on distance range is 100 Hz. The sensor is fully encapsulated in a stainless steel M30 tube with a plastic dielectric lens antenna with a short cable tail with DIN M12 connector.

Application Area

RaDist P60 applications

  • Industrial distance measurement for short range from 20 cm up to 200 cm.
  • Industrial liquid level measure­ment in containers e.g. IBC.
  • Industrial bulk material level measure­ment.
  • Distance measure­ment on rough surfaces e.g. the soil surface.
  • Distance measure­ment under challenging conditions e.g. dust, fog, wind, temperature gradients e.g. on hot surface.



Benefits and advantages

  • Distance measurement with millimeter accuracy.
  • Update rate up to 50 Hz depending on distance range.
  • 60.5 GHz (V-band) pulse radar with low output power (EIRP 10 dBm).
  • Beam focus with 10° aperture (3 dB) by means of dielectric lens.
  • Stainless steel M30 (30 mm diameter) casing with plastic dielectric lens antenna.
  • Distance measure­ment from 20 cm up to 200 cm (depending on target).
  • Different application - specific product variants available depending on distance range.
  • Single-target distance measure­ment onto the strongest reflector.
  • Robust function under adverse conditions e.g. dirt, dust, fog.
  • Unsusceptible against varying lighting, machine noise, wind, temperature.
  • Environmental protection IP69K (with connector tightened).
  • Wide DC input range power supply.
