Time-of-Flight measuring principle

Commissioning movie for Micropilot FMR5x free space radar and Levelflex FMP5x guided radar

Unique HistoROM data management concept for safe level measurement

Continuous adapting algorithms offering safe level measurement due to Multi-Echo Tracking

Economically efficient basis model for level measurement in solids

Micropilot FMR56 is particularly designed for light-duty process conditions as they occur in silos or bins for solids. Micropilot free space radar is used for continuous,
non-contact level measurement in powdery to granular bulk solids. Dust, filling noises, temperature layers and gas layers do not affect the measurement.

  • Voordelen

    • Reliable measurement even for changing product and process conditions

    • HistoROM data management concept for fast and easy commissioning, maintenance and diagnostics

    • Highest reliability even in the presence of obstructions in the vessel due to new Multi-...

  • Toepassingsgebied

    PP-plated horn antenna can be easily aligned to the surface of the solids by the mounting bracket or a turnable seal.

    • Process connections: Mounting bracket or slip-on flange

    • Temperature: -40 to +80°C (-40 to +176°F)

    • Pressure: -1 to +3bar (-14.5 to +43....
