UWT family grows with new NivoRadar® - Radar level transmitter

The robust stainless steel construction makes the NR 3000 extremely suitable for all kinds of industrial applications. The unit operates at a high frequency of 78 GHz. This delivers a very small beam angle which eliminates any signal interference at the flange but allows for optimum reflection of the bulk solids material. The aiming flanges can be adjusted to ensure a perfect positioning of the NR 3000. In other words, the angle of the beam can be set to a specific point; for example, at the outlet of the silo. The lens antenna is highly resistant to material deposits and offers a self-clean function for extremely sticky solids using an air flush connection. The plug in display allows programming and diagnostics on-site, making the installation and operation of the unit as easy as child’s play.

Aiming flange & Integrated lens cleaner

The NivoRadar® offers a flat flange version and also an aiming flange version. Using the adjustable aiming flange, the radar is perfectly aligned since the probe can be fixed to the desired point; for example, at the silo discharge. Due to the default purging air for cleaning the lens antenna, a use in bulk materials that tend to adhesion is possible.

Even within applications where condensation occurs, the flushing connection provides a functionally reliable measurement. The device uses a two-wire technology and is made simple to operate via a local programmer with display and a Quick Start Wizard. The unshielded radar sensor has a completely dustproof design and provides reliable measurement results in high process temperatures up to 200°C.

Efficient Silo Management

The radar sensor can also be easily connected to the silo management system, Nivotec®, for reliable content measurement.
