FMCW Radar Level Transmitter RC
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.
The RC Series is a two-wire 24 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter for basic applications with solid products. It provides continuous, non-contact level measurement of stones, granules, flakes and other such solid products for a variety of industries. It makes an ideal solid level indicator for large or high bins and silos.
The level transmitter can be equipped with a metallic horn antenna or PP and PTFE drop antennas. The drop antenna design minimizes product build-up and is unaffected by the angle of repose, eliminating the need for antenna aiming kits or purging systems.
The RC Series is a new, powerful solids level indicator that provides accurate and reliable readings, even with uneven product surfaces. Due to its small beam angle and high dynamic range, the 24 GHz radar can measure distances up to 100 m/328 ft. These features make it a cost-effective, more powerful alternative to pulse radar transmitters. The level transmitter offers flange or thread connections, with optional antenna extensions to suit any nozzle length. Hazardous area approvals are available, and HART®7 also comes as standard for this device.
