It is impossible for a lift truck operator to see all danger areas at once, especially if they are in a blind spot. The Backsense® radar sensor system detects stationary and moving objects and gives the driver in the cab visual and acoustic signals as a warning. This allows you to see people and objects in time and greatly reduces accidents.

The Backsense® Radar uses FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) technology. This involves emitting a signal with continuously varying frequency, which gives a unique time stamp to each wave. The time at which the returning wave is detected is compared to the time stamp, without interruption of the radar signals. This leads to very accurate detection, better than with pulsed radar. The object detection sensors work effectively in harsh conditions and poor visibility such as darkness, smoke and fog.

  • Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar technology.
  • programmable radar for full control of the radar beam pattern and the detection area
  • Beam spread and length easily adaptable to vehicle width and length: width from 1 to 10 meters, length from 1 to 30 meters
  • adjustable beam pattern to reduce false alarms to a minimum
  • excellent close-range detection
  • acoustic signal and easy-to-interpret 5-stage visual display
  • Suitable for on-road and off-road applications
  • For demanding applications such as bad weather and all types of terrain
  • meets occupational health and safety requirements
  • is not affected by moisture, dust, vibration, heat, cold, UV radiation, snow, ice, high winds, water or mud
