Endress + Hauser Australia have enhanced the performance of their radar level measurement range. Combined with their broad selection of antennas these enhancements allow users to achieve an optimum cost to performance ratio in more applications than ever before.
Radar level measurement is suitable for the measurement of liquids and solids across a range of applications.
Each application has a unique set of parameters including; measuring range, media characteristics, temperature, pressure, mechanical installation constraints, installation environment, communication protocol and budget.
Many users are obliged to purchase a radar system that far exceeds the requirements of their application’s parameters due to limited choice. While this can provide a certain peace of mind, it also means paying for performance and features that aren’t required.
As radar level technology moved into new applications, it created a need for different transmission frequencies combined with antennas of various size, shape and material.
Endress + Hauser have developed a very broad range of frequency and antenna combinations by working closely with their customers to optimise performance in these new applications.
In most cases, the correct choice of frequency and antenna will ensure easy set-up and reliable operation. In some difficult applications, process dynamics like foam, agitators, spray-ball cleaning, condensation and product build-up affect the system’s signal interpretation. Endress+Hauser’s patented PulseMaster® eXact innovation, has significantly improved the performance of their Micropilot radars by up to 35dB, making measurements in these difficult applications reliable.
