The detection of humans for their own safety in an industrial environment is vital, especially with increases in the flexibility and velocity of automated working machines. A capacitive detector for the detection of humans in guarded zones has been designed. An electromagnetic model accounting for bodies of different permittivity in the vicinity of the sensor is described. Numerical calculations based on the electromagnetic model have been made and experimental measurements have been taken. An example shows how the electromagnetic model can be used to model the output of the person detector.
