Non-contact solids level monitoring
The Sitrans LR560 is a non-contact radar level measurement transmitter with a measurement range of 100 meters. The transmitter emits a narrow four degree beam which avoids container wall obstructions and other installation interferences, ensuring there are less restrictions on where the radar can be installed.
For industries including food and beverage, power and aggregates, the Sitrans LR560 enables the monitoring of product levels to make sure there is never a shortage or over-fill, reducing the risk of downtime in production processes. It also provides reliable signal reflection even from solids with a steep angle of repose and is highly resistant to material build-up due to the unique lens antenna.
As it is the first radar transmitter to emit a high frequency 78GHz short wavelength, it solves the traditional problem plant operators face of needing the low maintenance of non-contact level measurements but with the reliability and performance of contact technology.
The latest technology from Siemens IA&DT aims to enable operators to accurately measure, analyse and control their processes, resulting in increased quality and reduced costs. The Siemens Sitrans LR560 can be operational in minutes and provides reliable measurement readings without the need for fine-tuning.
