Ametek Drexelbrook expands its open-air radar level offering with the addition of the DRX400 (24 GHz) and DRX500 series (80 GHz) level transmitters. 

The DRX400 Series consists of three new models (DR5400, DR6400 and DR7400). This set of 24 GHz radar transmitters covers a broad range of applications. These products will be replacing the Drexelbrook DR7000 and DR6300 open-air radar models.

The DRX500 Series consists of three new models (DR3500, DR6500, and DR7500). This set of 80 GHz radar transmitters covers applications with slurries and solids for both hygienic and nonhygienic requirements. All 80 GHz radar transmitters are beneficial for level measurements in narrow tanks with internal obstructions due to their small beam angle. The DRX500 transmitters feature flush-mounted polyether ether ketone (PEEK) lens antenna and wide process connection options.  

Both series products feature a large, backlit LCD screen with four-button keypad that can be assessed with a bar magnet without opening the housing cover. Each uses software that has a quick set up assistant for easy installation. Each conforms to NAMUR recommendations NE 21, NE 43, and NE 53 and can measure fast-moving processes. The transmitters are available with aluminum or stainless-steel housings.
