Radar is an object-detection system that uses radio waves to determine the range, altitude, direction, or speed of objects. The term RADAR is an acronym for RAdio Detection And Ranging. Pulse Technology Partners, LLC products utilize a Doppler radar signal sensing and processing system coupled with re-engineered microwave and antenna components to deliver powerful performance into compact or traditional size devices.
By combining proprietary digital signal processing algorithms and state-of-the-art intelligent target acquisition techniques we are able to provide users with industry leading accuracy and speed measurement in devices that are a small fraction of the size of traditional speed radar guns.
From the certified accurate speed radar, to the traditional radar gun specifically designed for public safety and traffic safety, Pulse Technology Partners, LLC has engineered a revolutionary product line to fit your speed measurement needs. The design includes exceptional performance and technology that fits in the palm of your hand. Pulse Technology Partners, LLC products are convenient and rugged enough for everyday use.
How It Works
Pulse Technology Partners, LLC products are Doppler speed radar systems.
They work as a speed detector by emitting a small pulse of radio waves in an invisible focused beam, similar in shape to a flashlight beam.
When the radio wave hits an object that is moving towards or away from the radar, a small amount of the wave reflects back.
The moving object modifies the reflected radio wave based upon how fast it is moving directly towards or away from the radar unit.
The unit then receives the reflected radio wave and compares it to the original transmitted radio wave. It then calculates the speed of the moving object based upon the difference between the two radio waves.
Note that each radar model, like all Doppler speed radars, can only measure the speed of a moving object that is reasonably close to in-line with the direction of the radio wave beam. They cannot measure any motion side to side, across the radio wave beam.
The focused beam comes from the radar lens on the back of the unit directly behind the display or the front of the traditional radar unit.
Hold the unit up vertically like a camera phone with the beam from the radar lens directly in line with the moving object you want to measure.
Then “Tap” or “Hold” the larger button, like you are taking a picture, while the target object is in motion. The speed(s) will appear on the display. To “lock” the speed simply double hit the larger button.
