Radar level transmitter
The Sitrans LR 460 radar level transmitter features 24-GHz frequency-modulated continuous wave technology and process-intelligence echo processing for measurements in solids-level applications. The transmitter is a suitable solution for solids applications containing extreme dust and high temperatures, and it has a range of up to 328 feet. It can measure most solid mediums, including cement powder, fly-ash, coal, gypsum, flour, grain, aggregates and plastics. Its new process-intelligence, advanced echo-processing software and redesigned, high-frequency/high-gain circuitry allow the transmitter to measure these applications without contacting the material.
