AutomationDirect has added the Endress+Hauser Micropilot FMR10 series pulsed radar liquid level sensor to their growing lineup of liquid level sensors.
This new sensor is a downward facing, non-contact sensor that emits electromagnetic pulses and determines the level based on the time it takes for the pulses to be reflected back to the sensor. Radar sensors are more accurate than ultrasonic sensors and are less affected by environmental conditions such as temperature, humidity, and dust than ultrasonic sensors.
The Micropilot level sensor is configurable via Bluetooth® interface using the SmartBlue mobile app, which includes a linearization function that converts measured values to length, weight, flow, or volume. The mobile app can also display and record process envelope curves, which provide valuable diagnostic feedback for signal strength, range resolution, and interference.
The Endress+Hauser Micropilot FMR10 series pulsed radar level sensor is CSA approved, CE marked, and RoHS compliant. It offers a 1-year warranty and is priced at $720.00.
