Radar Level Measurement

Offered in general purpose and intrinsically safe versions for liquid or solids, the sensor provides reliable radar level measurement in difficult tank, sump or reservoir applications with foam, vapor, temperature or pressure; or dusty silo, bin, stockpile, crusher or transfer station applications with grains, pellets, powders or aggregates from 3-30 meters. How does a radar level measurement work? The radar level measurement emits a high frequency RF pulse from its antenna. The pulse travels through the air gap, reflects against the liquid or solids surface and returns to the antenna. The radar level measurement determines the pulse time of flight and converts this into level height or distance.
