Non-Contact Radar Level Sensors

Description

The ABM radar probe adjusts the microwave sensitivity, pulse amplitude and its width to the main target. This revolutionary approach allows the level transmitter to analyze the shapes of the received echoes and eliminates the ones coming from tanks’ walls, standpipes and other obstructions to give the true level.

Built in communication for a PC allows sophisticated diagnostics and storage of the current output and temperature in a data logger. A user can also see on the computer screen the echo profiles and echo stability chart. The microwave probes can be connected in a network using RS485 with ABM’s protocol and Modbus RTU
