FMCW Radar Level Transmitter RB
Radar technology provides powerful non-contact level control where it is most needed. These advanced level measurement gauges are immune to dust, vacuum, humidity, foam, and variations in pressure, dielectric and temperature. Hycontrol’s 24 GHz and 80 GHz radar products offer a wide range of solutions for almost every requirement. Models are available for solids measurement and liquid level control.
Hycontrol has developed the RB Series two-wire 24 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter for basic liquid process applications.
The device is particularly appropriate for continuous, non-contact level measurement in industries such as chemical, petrochemical, and oil and gas. Options include metallic horn antennas or PP drop antennas for condensing atmospheres and corrosive media.
The 24 GHz radar has a high dynamic range and can measure distances up to 100 m/328 ft. The configuration is simple, allowing for quick installations.
The RB Series provides accurate readings even in processes with fast-changing levels, in closed tanks or in the open air (for example in dams or rivers). This unit is a practical level measurement upgrade for basic applications that require higher accuracy. There are flange or thread connections as well as optional antenna extensions to suit any nozzle length. To meet the demands of today's industrial level measurement requirements, the RB Series is approved for hazardous areas and comes with extensive device diagnostics (acc. to NE 107) as well as HART®7 communication as standard.
