Pocket-Size Sensor with Maximum Scientific Freedom

The X1000 series scientific radar sensors offer maximum freedom to advance your research. Based on our high-performance   technology the sensors offer outstanding range resolution, stability and accuracy. Scientific variants of the X1000 series are equipped with a WR 6.5 (IEEE WM-1651) waveguide interface with an UG-387/U standard flange. Dielectric lens antennas are available as an alternative upon request.  A plug & play and easy to use lab-suitable USB-C interface for power and data based on USBTMC, a SCPI-like protocol interface and an open source Python wrapper library offers convenient connectivity to connect with the research tools of your choice.

Precision and high resolution 126-182 GHz D band radar sensor with waveguide interface for S-parameter and quasi VNA measurements covering the frequency ranges 116 GHz, 120 GHz, 122 GHz, 134 GHz, 141 GHz, 174.8 and 126 to 182 GHz based on RDI-S sub-THz spectroscopy regulation.


2π SENSE technology advances radar resolution by a factor of 56 compared to current ISM band radar sensors.


To suit the need of your most demanding applications 2π SENSE technology provides atomic clock level accuracy.


The 2π SENSE technology was designed with multi-protocol capability and lens antenna exchangability in mind.


2π SENSE is the first D-band ultra wide bandwidth sensor technology designed for CE and FCC compliance.
