How To Buy A Radar Gun

Radar Gun – ” A small device used to measure the speed of various moving objects”

Most commonly offered radar guns are Doppler radars that make use of the Doppler effect that produce speed information of an object either coming towards or away from the radar gun.

This is achieved by beaming a microwave signal towards the object therefore listening for its reflection , then it analyzes the frequency of the returned signal. This allows a direct and highly accurate measurement of the objects speed in either MPH of KPH readings.

With so many different radar guns available in today’s market it may seem overwhelming to choose the the correct radar gun for your radar speed detection needs.

Radar Guns can range in price from low to high.

This is because of the three most important factors when purchasing a radar gun
Accuracy –  Depending on the radar gun +/- 0.10 MPH to 2.0 MPH.
Range–  The distance away the radar gun can pick up the movement of the object depending on the size of the target and can be up to 1 mile away.
Acquisition Time –  The time it takes for the radar gun to read the target. Depending on the radar gun, it can start recording the speed at 0.01 seconds.
