RADARMÅLING

Level measurement with radar

In continuous non-contact level measurement with radar, the sensor sends microwave signals towards the medium from above. The surface of the medium reflects the signals back in the direction of the sensor. Using the received microwave signals, the sensor determines the distance to the product surface and calculates the level from it.

Liquids and solids are usually measured with this measuring technique.

The benefits
Non-contact level measurement with radar is characterized by particularly high measurement accuracy
The measurement is not affected by temperature, pressure or dust
User-friendly adjustment saves time
