Engineering Spotlight - Advanced Sensor Testing

By John Fadgen on November 8, 2018

PRECO Electronics® has been designing and manufacturing short range radar sensors since 2001.  Extensive testing of these sensors is required to validate operation.  Older versions of the PreView® Radar sensors had a short detection range (<10 meters) and the PRECO engineering team has been able to do much of the performance testing on an indoor test range.  The latest generation of PreView® sensors, such as the Sentry™, have a much longer detection range of 30 meters, necessitating a different testing area.

With some foresight and planning though, many fleet managers may find that there is actually ample time to make these upgrades.
