Gladiator G3 Microwave Switch

Gladiator G3 Microwave Switch

The Gladiator Gen 3 Microwave Switch can be used for blockage detection, barrier detection, machine detection, collision detection for protection, point level measurement, and detection of objects or material between two points.


Principle of Operation

A beam of microwave energy passes from a sender unit to a separate receiver in bursts approximately 200 times per second. If the path between the sender and receiver is blocked by any object or material which absorbs or reflects microwave energy, then the receiver will not be able to detect the signal. The presence or absence of the signal at the receiver is used to switch a relay for indication or control purposes.
