Radar Level Sensor – Model 6753-00

The Radar Level Sensor – Model 6753-00 is a downward-looking measuring system. The Radar Level Sensor measures the distance from the transmitter to the water’s surface. Radar impulses are emitted by the Radar Level Sensor’s antenna, reflected off the water surface and received again by the radar system.

FEATURES:

  • Non-Contact
  • Continuous Measurement
  • Accurate, Reliable Operation
  • Easy Installation

Description

The Radar Level Sensor – Model 6753-00 is a downward-looking measuring system. The Radar Level Sensor measures the distance from the transmitter to the water’s surface. Radar impulses are emitted by the Radar Level Sensor’s antenna, reflected off the water surface and received again by the radar system

Traditionally, ultrasonic devices have been the preferred level measurement technique in many stream monitoring applications where budget restrictions are tight. And while ultrasonic level measurement indeed provides a low-cost solution,it can however, suffer from problems of echo loss and poor temperature compensation. The Radar Level Sensor offers an accurate and reliable alternative to ultrasonics.

The Radar Level Sensor, has even more intelligent and reliable signal analysis with its Multi-Echo Tracking technology. All of the Radar Level Sensor’s echo signals are marked and tracked, not only the level signal. Thanks to the new analysis, the level signal is also acquired by the Radar Level Sensor if it is partly covered by baffles and/or debris. This guarantees safe and precise measurements by the Radar Level Sensors at any time.

Model Radar Level Sensor’s HistoROM data management function allows fast and easy maintenance and diagnostics. As well as continuously backing-up all relevant data, it allows you to replace your Radar Level Sensor module quickly and simply by installing it into the housing. The HistoROM function automatically uploads the configuration to the new Radar Level Sensor module. The HistoROM function also offers intuitive and user-friendly menu guidance to cut the cost of Radar Level Sensor training, maintenance, and operation.

The Radar Level Sensors provide non-contact continuous measurement. The Radar Level Sensor has a measuring range of 30 meters (approximately 98 feet) and has display for simple menu-guided operation. Configuration software is included with the Radar Level Sensor. NOTE: The Radar Level Sensor can be freely mounted outdoors — operation is completely harmless to humans and animals.
