Endress + Hauser has launched major performance enhancements to its range of free-to-air microwave devices.
Historically, it has been a challenge to implement low-cost, reliable time-of-flight microwave level measurement solutions for difficult applications due to the interferences of splashing, foam, and steam in liquids, and irregular product surfaces and dust in the measuring process in solids.
A hardware and software innovation, Endress+Hauser’s new Pulsemaster eXact technology significantly boosts the performance capabilities of radar (microwave) level measuring devices across the range for tough applications, while allowing entry level radar based instruments to rival their high-end competitors at no additional cost.
Pulsemaster eXact now incorporates an Advanced Dynamics 26 GHz High Frequency module with new intelligence added to patented Pulsemaster algorithms.
These enhancements create stronger reflected signals and more advanced filtering analysis which ensures dramatically improves the accuracy and reliability of the level readings.
“Pulsemaster eXact enables lower-end models in the range to solve more complex solids and liquids applications, while giving a performance boost to higher-end versions aimed at more complex applications,” says Endress+Hauser managing director, John Immelman.
Other vendors can only achieve this performance with higher level and higher priced devices.
By turbocharging its lower-end level measuring Micropilots, Endress+Hauser now offer customers of traditional ultrasonic level devices far more sophisticated microwave devices in the same price range.
The new Pulsemaster eXact technology is also available as a retrofit enhancement to earlier Micropilot models. “Advanced microwave technology for solids and liquids level measurement is now affordable and we can offer this technology at the lower ultrasonic prices,” concludes Immelman.
