The Siemens L560 radar level transmitter is in a class of its own. Not only does this extremely compact worldwide innovation come with a lens antenna completely eliminating the need for a large parabolic or horn antenna- but it is the first transmitter to use the 78GHz frequency. Both of these combine to give it a narrow 4 degree, beam angle.
SITRANS LR560 2-wire, 78 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter for continuous monitoring of solids in silos to a range of 100 m (328 ft).
SITRANS LR560’s plug and play performance is ideal for most solids applications, including those with extreme dust and high temperatures to +200 ºC (+392 ºF). Unique design allows safe and simple programming using the Intrinsically Safe handheld programmer without having to open the instrument’s lid.
SITRANS LR560 includes an optional graphical local display interface (LDI) that improves setup and operation using an intuitive Quick Start Wizard, and echo profile display for diagnostic support. Startup is easy using the Quick Start wizard with a few parameters required for basic operation. SITRANS LR560 measures virtually any solids material to a range of 100 m (328 ft).
Key Applications: cement powder, plastic powder/pellets, grain, coal, wood powder, fly ash
Supplementary Components are designed to work with most types of instrumentation to provide enhanced functionality such as remote displays and remote monitoring solutions.
Don’t forget that the safest engineered level measurement solution includes switches for back-up, overfill, low level and dry run protection.
