Radar Level Measurement Family Expands

Drexelbrook has expanded its open-air radar level offering with the addition of the DRX400 (24 GHz) and DRX500 series (80 GHz) level transmitters. Both incorporate state-of-the-art features and components. The DRX400 Series consists of three models, the DR5400, DR6400 and DR7400.

The 80-GHz radar transmitters cover applications with liquids, slurries, and solids for both hygienic and non-hygienic requirements. All are viable for level measurements in narrow tanks with internal obstructions due to their small beam angle. The DRX500 transmitter, with its flush-mounted polyether ether ketone (PEEK) lens antenna and wide process connection options, is suitable for hygienic liquids.

Both series feature a large, backlit LCD screen with 4-button keypad that can be assessed with a bar magnet without opening the housing cover. Each uses software with a quick set up assistant for easy installation and conforms to NAMUR recommendations NE 21, NE 43 and NE 53 and can measure fast-moving processes. The transmitters are available with aluminum or stainless-steel housings.
