expands Range of FMCW Based Radar Level Measurement Products
DRX400 and DRX500 Series Transmitters added to Open-Air Radar
a world leader in level measurement technology, has expanded
its open-air radar level offering with the addition of the DRX400
(24 GHz) and DRX500 series (80 GHz) level transmitters. Both
incorporate state-of-the-art features and components.
The DRX400 Series consists of 3 new models :
This set of 24 GHz radar transmitters covers a broad range of
applications including liquids and solids.
Series consists of 3 new models :
This set of 80 GHz radar transmitters covers applications with
liquids, slurries and solids for both hygienic and non-hygienic
requirements. All 80 GHz radar transmitters are especially beneficial
for level measurements in narrow tanks with internal obstructions
due to their small beam angle. The DRX500 transmitters, with
its flush-mounted polyether ether ketone (PEEK) lens antenna
and wide process connection options, is ideal for hygienic liquids.
series of products feature a large, backlit LCD screen with 4-button
keypad that can be assessed with a bar magnet without opening
the housing cover. Each uses software that has a quick set up
assistant for easy installation. Each conforms to NAMUR recommendations
NE 21, NE 43 and NE 53 and can measure fast-moving processes.
The transmitters are available with aluminum or stainless-steel
Radar is one of the most accurate technologies for process level
and storage tank applications for continuous level measurement
under demanding conditions. The transmitters utilize Frequency
Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) technology that offers superior
signal processing capabilities and a more reliable measurement
than other techniques. The state-of-the-art signal processing
capabilities of these transmitters, along with their frequency
range helps to ensure optimum application coverage.
Both additions to the DR Series measure distance, level and volume
of liquids, slurries and solids. They also offer an empty spectrum
function that filters false reflections caused by equipment and
other tank obstructions.
