level transmitter / FMCW radar / for powders and dusty atmospheres


Radar (FMCW) level transmitter for powders and dusty atmospheres The OPTIWAVE 6500 is a 2-wire 80 GHz radar (FMCW) level transmitter for demanding applications with powders in very dusty atmospheres. With its small beam angle, this radar is particularly suited for continuous, non-contact level measurement in high and narrow silos, hoppers or buffer storage containers up to 100 m / 328 ft. Due to the high signal dynamics of the FMCW radar, the level transmitter is ideal for low-reflective media, dust, uneven surfaces or tanks with obstacles. As it features a flush-mounted PEEK Lens antenna, there is no intrusion of the antenna into the tank.
