Sitrans LR560 Microwave Radar Level Transmitter

The Sitrans LR560 is a 78 GHz (W Band) microwave radar level transmitter for solids level measurement. It combines level measuring with high accuracy in tough environments, with intelligent signal processing for optimum performance at all operating stages. The Sitrans LR560 transmitter is equipped with a newly developed lens-style antenna and uses non-contacting Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) radar technology. The benefits of this new design will be realized by industrial processes such as cement powder, plastic powder/pellets, grain, coal, wood powder, and fly ash. The plug and play performance is ideal for most solids applications, including those with extreme dust and high temperatures to 392ºF.
