The Model R82 is a pulse burst radar from Magnetrol designed for light industrial applications. This device is an inexpensive solution to level measurement applications because of its microwave-based radar technology. It emits short bursts of 26 GHz microwave energy and reflects in from the liquid level surface. It calculates the distance using the equation D = Transit time (round-trip)/2. The liquid level is then calculated by applying the user's tank height and sensor offset values. This radar is suitable for use with storage and intermediate holding tanks, standpipes and chambers, mixing and blending vessels, and enclosed sumps.
