Comment IIOT Power

A new, 80-GHz, wireless radar-level sensor

By Chemical Engineering |

Endress + Hauser

The FWR30 is this company’s first cloud-connected radar level sensor, and is said to be the world’s first 80-GHz wireless IIoT (industrial internet of things) sensor, providing full transparency in the storage and transport of liquids. The instrument’s continuously recorded measurement data can be accessed at any time, from any location, due to the device’s cloud connection, with communication made possible by an integrated SIM card. The compact device is suitable for stackable tanks and offers flexible and easy installation. In addition to the measured level, the instrument provides information on tank location, helping users optimize logistic and storage processes and save time by providing continuous access to inventory information. The free-radiating measuring device covers measuring ranges up to 50 ft and temperatures between –4 and 140°F. Because it uses non-contact measurement, the Micropilot FWR30 can be used in all liquid media. It is resistant to corrosion, abrasion, viscosity and toxicity. — Endress+Hauser, Greenwood, Ind.
