Hawk Measurement Systems has designed and developed the CGR PoE guided wave radar level transmitter, featuring Power over Ethernet  (PoE) communications.  

“Hawk continues to focus on developing technologies to help our customers,” said Jack Evans, global president of Hawk Measurement. “We are very excited about the interest and feedback for the guided radar Power over Ethernet product as this was developed based on our customers' needs and input.” 

The advantages to Power over Ethernet connectivity are secure in-plant and remote monitoring, as well as remote sensor setup, diagnostics, and troubleshooting abilities. If any troubleshooting is required, the CGR PoE will communicate to remote service technicians for off-site diagnostics, sensor health and re-configuration, without the need to climb a tank or enter the facility. Hawk's CGR PoE level transmitter can connect to an online portal--the HawkEye365--which can monitor multiple tanks worldwide in real-time. 

The HawkEye365 online monitoring portal provides accessibility to critical data, such as the ability to view volume, space, material height, historical trending, alarms and alerts, sensor setup, and diagnostics. Plant level operator screens are customized to the company’s specifications to include control room level and operations level interface screens. The graphical user interface will be common throughout and permissions can be set for different tiers such as plant-level, finance, or executive level.

Asset measurement and monitoring management is becoming more critical throughout process industries such as oil & gas, chemical & petrochemical, water & wastewater, energy, mining, and agriculture.
