Radar level transmitters with Bluetooth connectivity

| By Chemical Engineering



The Micropilot FMR10 and FMR20 (photo) free-space radar level transmitters measure liquid levels in storage tanks, open basins, open channels, weirs and canal systems. The FMR10 measures liquid levels at ranges up to 16 ft with 0.2-in. accuracy, while the FMR20 measures levels up to 66 ft. with 0.08-in. accuracy. Both models offer the option of Bluetooth configuration. Protection to IP66/68 and NEMA 4X/6P, hermetically sealed wiring and fully potted electronics eliminate water ingress and allow operation under harsh environmental conditions. Both sensors are available with a flooding tube that allows a maximum output signal to be generated even if an overflow condition causes the sensor to be completely immersed. The level sensors work in process temperatures of –40 to 176°F and pressures of –14 to 43 psi, and are vibration resistant. — Endress+Hauser, Inc., Greenwood, Ind.
