Parker TGSS

Sensor Condition Monitoring, True Ground Speed Sensor (TGSS).

The Parker True Ground Speed Sensor (TGSS) is one of the Parker family of accessories provided to complement electronic control systems. The sensor determines true ground speed using Doppler beam technology and reports the information using a frequency signal. The TGSS is intended for vehicle and other applications with a steady voltage of less than or equal to 16Vdc. The TGSS has an ABS plastic construction for sturdiness and corrosion resistance. The sensor uses planar antenna, Doppler effect technology for trouble free operation. A microwave signal transmitted out of the sensor is reflected off the target and received by the sensor. The ground speed is calculated by measuring the change in frequency. The sensor can be specified with one of 2 microwave carrier frequencies, either the standard frequency, or one suitable for the United Kingdom.
