ASI Instruments, represented by Micromax , has announced the WaveTrak 5200 guided wave radar level transmitter. A state-of-the-art, two-wire, loop powered device, the WT5200 is designed for challenging bulk solids measurement applications.
The transmitter is unaffected by dust or feed flow, accurately measuring the level of materials with dielectric constants as low as 1.3, such as plastic pellets, or fly ash.
The WT5200 features an integrated graphic display for quick and easy viewing of waveform screens. A concentric waveguide directs the radar signal, alleviating beam spread problems and echoes from tank walls and internal structures. The easy-to-follow setup menu supports a wide range of languages to speed deployment around the world.
Integrated waveform display
The WT5200 is a compact, all-digital design with built-in linearisation functions. The modular architecture features an integrated graphic display with easy-to-read waveform screens that detail signal activity. This makes configuring, fine-tuning, and troubleshooting fast and simple.
Easy-to-understand setup menus can be changed to different languages for deployment around the globe. Supported languages include English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, and Mandarin.
Accuracy in adverse conditions
The WT5200 can accurately measure a broad range of challenging products under adverse conditions, such as low-dielectric materials, dusty environments, and high operating temperatures and pressures.
Accurate level measurements are provided for materials with bulk densities up to 50 lb/ft3 and dielectric constants as low as 1.3, even in the presence of varying temperatures and pressures. The WT5200 operates at up to 1500 psi (103 bar) or 400°F (204°C).
The WT5200 transmitter features a 2-wire, loop powered design with multiple output options, including 4-20mA, HART Fieldbus, and MODBUS. The standard housing is powder-coated aluminum with optional stainless steel to handle corrosive environments. A dual-compartment design isolates the wiring and terminations from the sensing elements and internal electronics.
