Banner T30R Radar Sensor

Detecting Where Others Cannot

The Banner T30R series is an industrial radar sensor that uses high frequency radio waves from an internal antenna. It detects high-dielectric targets, such as metal or large amounts of water, and lower-dielectric materials, such as wood, rock, or organic material. The sensor can be configured with software, IO-Link, remote input wires, or push buttons to sense objects up to a specific distance, ignoring objects beyond this distance (background suppression). The sensor can also be taught a reference point to detect the presence or absence of objects (retroreflective).

T30R provides a robust, longer range alternative to ultrasonics, delivering more precision and reliability than traditional 24 GHz radar with easy set up and simple integration.

The Steiner Automation & Controls team can help you review and select the right T30R Radar Sensor based on your application requirements.

BANNER T30R Series Features

  • Compact, rugged IP67 housing for dependable, long-term operation in harsh environments
  • Unaffected by rain, wind, snow, fog, steam, sunlight, and an operating temperature of -40 to 65° C
  • Detects a wider range of targets than traditional 24 GHz radar including reliable detection of high-dielectric materials like metal as well as lower-dielectric materials like wood, rock, or organic material
  • Dual discrete outputs for slow / stop positions or analog and IO-Link for absolute measurement values
  • Radar Configuration Software, IO-Link, remote teach, and push buttons for flexible set-up
  • Pulse Pro output for direct integration with Banner lights, giving direct process feedback that only requires power; no controller needed
  • Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) for detection of stationary and moving targets
  • Crosstalk immunity, allowing for multiple sensors to be mounted in close proximity
  • Up to 15 m range to detect targets from farther away while maintaining detection as close as 150 mm
  • Available in 15x15 degree and 45x45 degree beam patterns to solve a wide variety of applications
  • The T30R-1515 offers the most precise measurement and ignores objects outside of a region of interest making it ideal for vehicle detection, tank level monitoring and positioning feedback
  • For the most reliable detection, the T30R-4545 should be used on large, strong targets such as vehicles, trains, or airplanes

Beam Pattern Considerations

Radar Sensors are available in narrow and wide beam patterns. Narrow beam patterns avoid false detection of objects outside of the region of interest and allow for a more precise measurement, while wide beam patterns provide coverage of larger areas and provide more robust detection of irregular surfaces and targets presented at steep angles.


Narrow Beam Considerations

  • Drive-through
  • Gantry crane
  • Overhead Crane
  • Loading Docks


Wide Beam Applications

  • Mobile equipment collision avoidance
  • Vehicle detection: train, car, boats


Ideal for outdoor applications

  • Resistant to rain, snow, fog, steam or sunlight
  • IP67-rated


Temperature Stability

  • Radar (radio waves) not affected by temperature changes like Ultrasonic (sound waves)
  • Consistent measurement: -40 to 60 ºC


Detect near or far

  • Sensing range of 150 mm to 15 m


No Crosstalk

  • No problem mounting multiple sensors close together
