Affordable radar level measurement

14 October 2009

Magnetrol says its two-wire non contact radar transmitter is a cost-effective tool for level measurement, based on the concept of pulse burst radar. The new Model R82, 26GHz emits short bursts of 26GHz microwave energy that are reflected from the liquid level surface.

Liquid level is then calculated by applying the user's tank height and sensor Offset values.

The new economical design features advancements that are designed to make radar cost-competitive with loop-powered, ultrasonic competition.

The Model R82 can be used in numerous of generic, storage applications. The design lends itself to measuring within inches of the tank top. The encapsulated horn in Polypropylene or Tefzel allows it to be used in corrosive media.

The Model R82 can handle process temperatures from -40°C to +93°C and from full vacuum up to 13.8 bar within a measuring range up to 12.2m.

Its internal launcher adjustment allows beam orientation without removing the Model R82 from the vessel.

Another feature of the Model R82 is the standard 4-20 mA output with HART which can be used for data transmission, configuration and diagnostics. The PACTware program provides extensive diagnostic capabilities including capture of echo waveforms, viewing of trend data and all transmitter configuration parameters.
