Principle of Operation

A high power circular polarized Microwave pulse is emitted from the Sending unit to the Receiving unit in a transmission chain of approximately 100 pulses per second. If the path between the Sender and Receiver is blocked by any object or material which absorbs or reflects microwave energy the Receiving unit will no longer detect the complete transmission chain and indicate via Relay for automatic indication and process control requirements.
