The Pulsar® Model R96 is a loop-powered, 24 VDC, non-contact radar level transmitter. It has a longer measurement range, improved diagnostics and is easier to use than most loop-powered radar transmitters.
Pulse Burst Radar emits short bursts of energy to a liquid surface. Ultra-high-speed timing circuitry measures the time of the signal reflected off the liquid surface.
Sophisticated signal processing filters out false reflections and other background noises. The exact level is then calculated, by factoring in tank height and other configuration information. The circuitry is extremely energy efficient so no duty cycling is needed as with other radar devices. This allows the device to track high rates of level changes up to 4,5 m/minute (180"/min).
Performance not process dependent (changing specific gravity and dielectric have no effect)
