LR65 LevelWave (80GHz) Free-Space Radar (FMCW) Transmitter

Radar for solids level measurement 

Benefits:

The new LR65 from Schneider Electric offers customers the benefit of reliable, trouble-free solids level measurement. Following an easy start-up procedure, the radars use powerful Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar technology and advanced signal processing and algorithms to maintain accuracy. A rugged design allows both models to be used in applications featuring: product buildup, sloping material, uneven surfaces, “rat-holes” and other challenges.

• M12 cable connector option lowers labor costs with quick plug and play wiring
• Quick intuitive set-up with push buttons or PACTware™ DTM
• Compatible with WirelessHART Adapter WHA-ADP2
• No moving parts ensures reliability
• No need for expensive antenna aiming kits with Drop antenna
• Drop antenna unaffected by angle of repose
• Drop antenna shape prevents product build-up in dusty applications.
• A DN70 process connection results in a focused 4° beam angle.
• An antenna extension (length 112 mm / 4.4”) is available for high nozzles.
