Radar Level Transmitters Dive Into Liquids And Solids

KROHNE now offers six 24- and 80-GHz transmitters for its OPTIWAVE series frequency-modulated continuous-wave (FMCW) radar level transmitters. The transmitters are designed for liquid and solid applications with each device having a target application including agitated and corrosive liquids, narrow tanks with internal obstructions, or powders and dusty atmospheres.

 

OPTIWAVE devices feature two-wire, 4-mA to 20-mA HART 7 communication and offer process-connection options starting from 0.75-inch. They feature a large backlit LCD with a four-button keypad, quick-setup assistant, and PACTware device type manager (DTM) software with full functionality. Hazardous area approvals are available, while others, including safety integrity level (SIL), are in process.

Analog Devices ADIS16500/05/07 Precision Miniature MEMS IMU Available Now from Digi-Key

The Analog Devices’ ADI ADIS16500/05/07 precision miniature MEMS IMU includes a triaxial gyroscope and a triaxial accelerometer. Each inertial sensor in the MEMS IMU combines with signal conditioning that optimizes dynamic performance.

 

Devices for liquids include the OPTIWAVE 3500 with an 80-GHz FMCW radar aimed at hygienic applications in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical markets; OPTIWAVE 5400, a 24-GHz FMCW radar for liquids in basic process applications in chemical, oil & gas and power industries; OPTIWAVE 7400, a 24-GHz FMCW radar designed for liquids in harsh environments such as tanks with agitators containing corrosives; and OPTIWAVE 7500, a 80-GHz FMCW radar covering the same industries as OPTIWAVE 7400 but with an 80-GHz radar that can even measure through tank roofs made of non-conductive material.

 

Devices for solids include the OPTIWAVE 6400, a 24-GHz FMCW radar for solids from granulates to rocks in industries such as minerals and mining, chemical, agriculture, or power generation; and OPTIWAVE 6500, an 80-GHz FMCW radar for powders and dusty atmospheres, equipped with special features that meet the challenges linked to fine powders such as dust, low-reflective media, build-up, and uneven surfaces.
