New radar level transmitters for solids:
OPTIWAVE 6400 is a 24 GHz FMCW radar for solids from granulates to rocks in industries such as minerals and mining, chemical, agriculture, or power generation. It measures the level of solids such as stone, plastic granulates or coffee beans accurately and reliably. The proven Drop antenna minimises scaling and is unaffected by the angle of repose, thus eliminating the need for expensive antenna aiming kits or purging systems.
OPTIWAVE 6500 is a 80 GHz FMCW radar for powders and dusty atmospheres, aiming at the same industries as OPTIWAVE 6400. It features specific algorithms and high signal dynamics to provide reliable and accurate readings despite the challenges linked to fine powders such as dust, low-reflective media, build-up and uneven surfaces. Thanks to the small beam angle of the flush-mounted Lens antenna, it is best suited for high and narrow silos even in the presence of internal obstructions.
