Understanding Radar Level Measurement

There are different types of radar level transmitters which can all provide a continuous reading of level in both liquid and solids applications, with some also being used for flow measurement.  Non-contact radar refers to  sensors which do not come in to contact with the medium being measured whilst guided wave radar sends pulses along a cable or probe.  For more info see below or contact one of our engineers.

Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter

Guided Wave Radar, or TDR, is one of the most versatile methods of level measurement giving reliable results in both liquids and solids, even in applications with foam, condensation or vapours.

Non-contact Radar Level Transmitter

Non-contact radar provides continuous level measurement by sending a signal from above towards the medium without the sensor coming in to contact with the contents being measured.

Radar calculates the level by measuring the time it takes for a signal that is sent by the sensor to reflect from the medium and be received back by the sensor.   This means that the longer it takes to receive the signal back the lower the level.  Advancements in radar technology have reduced costs to enable them to be competitive in applications where ultrasonics were previously used.
