K1 Product Range

All K1 series radars are available with sensors for different detection distances, the sensor size increases with detection range and are optimised for VAS (Vehicle Activated Signs) also known as Radar Speed Signs or Safety Signs.

Low Range

Ideal for cost sensitive and low power applications, the low range sensor can detect an average sized car at up to 100m.

Mid Range

For more demanding applications, the mid range sensor can detect an average sized car at up to 200m.

Long Range

For ultra long range applications, the long range sensor can detect an average sized car at up to 400m.

Base Radar

  • Low Power – optimised for battery powered applications.
  • DSP Technology – uses modern DSP techniques to analyse the radar signal.
  • Direction Sensitive – will only “activate” on the preset direction of traffic flow.
  • USB Port – uses USB for configuration and firmware upgrades.
  • RS232 – make use of Modem or Bluetooth connectivity.
  • Photodiode Input – when connected to the L1 led driver, the brightness of connected displays can be varied according to ambient light conditions.
  • Remote Access – when connected to the M1XX modem, the device can be remotely configured and firmware upgraded without visiting the site.

Kestrel Family Products 
With the Kestrel family of products, it’s possible for OEM’s to concentrate their efforts on their end product rather than spending time developing solutions to interface to the front end equipment. Our current family of products includes:

 

L1 LED DriverL1 LED Driver

The L1 LED driver is the integrated solution for driving LED signs (dual full 7 segments + single half segment + up to six additional high current LED banks). Optimised for low power, the L1 (in conjunction with the K1 radar module) automatically adjusts the LED brightness to the ambient light level to reduce power in all but the strongest daylight. True plug and play operation with the K1 series of radar modules.

R1 IO ExpanderR1 IO Expander

The R1 module expands the input and output capabilities of the K1 series. The 4 inputs can be used as discrete inputs or used as a hex input which allows a 16 position rotary switch to be used. In addition the 4 relay outputs can be used to provide signalling to external equipment. Multiple R1 devices can be daisy chained to extend IO capabilities even further. Optimised for low power.

M1M1 Modem Module

The M1 modem module provides the ultimate operational flexibility for end users. Site visits are no longer required to reconfigure or update devices, these can be done from the office without requiring physical access to the device. For devices that have data collection capabilities, data can also be downloaded and analysed remotely. Optimised for low power and plug and play operation.

C1 BLUETOOTHC1 Bluetooth Module

The C1 bluetooth module allows non-contact on-site operation, ideal for integration into products which have limited access, the C1 can reduce the burden of health and safety by allowing work to be carried out at ground level and without a physical connection. Optimised for low power and plug and play operation.
