FMCW radar sensor promises repeatable level measurement

05 February 2018

Pulsar Process Measurement has launched mmWAVE, a compact frequency modulation continuous wave (FMCW) radar sensor that promises accurate and repeatable level measurement and compatibility with the company’s existing range of level controllers.

Users are now able to choose between the company’s mmWAVE RADAR and dB ultrasonic measurement with no compromise in terms of functionality. All they need do is choose the best control solution and pair it with the appropriate measurement technology for the application.

Radar sensing can offer a good solution in applications where there is variation in temperature or changes in gas composition, and extremes of fog, haze, mist or rain. FMCW radar is said to offer higher resolution, better signal to noise ratio and better target discrimination when compared to pulsed radar systems.

Because the new sensors are compatible with the company’s existing controllers it is possible to retrofit them into existing applications, redeploy equipment across a wider range of applications for increased flexibility, or to test the performance of different measurement technologies without having to significantly reconfigure the device.
