Radar

RD Series 80 GHz for Powders & Dust

For demanding applications with powders in very dusty atmospheres, the RD Series two-wire 80 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter is an ideal choice. With its small beam angle, this radar indicator is particularly suited for continuous, non-contact level measurement in high and narrow silos, hoppers or buffer storage containers up to 328 ft. In addition, due to the high signal dynamics of the FMCW radar, the level transmitter is ideal for low-reflective media, dust, uneven surfaces or complex silo internal structures. Furthermore, as it features a flush-mounted PEEK Lens antenna, there is no intrusion of the antenna into the silo, bin or hopper.

TDR

VF04 2-Wire Guided TDR

TDR is sometimes called ‘radar on a rope’ or guided wave radar; its contact-based measurement principle makes it ideal for reliable product monitoring. A probe or cable is lowered into the vessel from the top and continuously measures the product level as it makes contact along its length. This level measurement technology is immune to dust, vacuum, humidity, foam, and variations in pressure, dielectric and temperature.
