AMETEK Magnetrol’s new Pulsar Model R80 radar level transmitter is a 80 GHz radar transmitter for the industrial market. FMCW technology and an 80 GHz operating frequency allow for superior performance, smaller antennas, better accuracy, and enhanced resolution. Additionally, Magnetrol’s configuration wizards and proactive diagnostics make commissioning and troubleshooting easier than ever. As is typical with Magnetrol loop-powered devices, the transmitter housing may be separated from the antenna without disrupting the process seal.
SIL 2 compliant device
The Model R80 is minimally affected by turbulence, foam, or excessive vapors as is often the case with ultrasonic transmitters and some radar products. The smaller antennas and narrower beam angles allow it to be installed into vessels with smaller process connections and those with internal obstructions that must be avoided. The transmitter can be delivered with process connections down to ¾ inch NPT. The measuring range is up to 30 meters (100 feet). It comes with global hazardous location approvals and is SIL 2 compliant with 92.3% SFF.
