Easy-to-operate level-measuring devices

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The new generation of Micropilot 80 GHz radar sensors (photo) — FMR60B, FMR62B, FMR63B, FMR66B and FMR67B — are suited for challenges when measuring points that are not easily accessible, located in dusty areas and harsh environments with extreme process temperatures and process conditions. The new generation of sensors come equipped with digital assistance operating via multiple human-machine interface (HMI) formats, including the SmartBlue application (app), making the sensors easier to use. Besides established digital-communication protocols like HART, other digital protocols, such as Profibus and Ethernet/APL, will be included in the near future. The measurement performance of the new radar chip combined with the smart Heartbeat Technology monitoring function helps to increase productivity. — Endress+Hauser, Inc., Greenwood, Ind.
