Guided Wave Radar

Radar is commonly used to continuously measure the level of powders, granules, solids or liquids in a vessel. The NCR-80 non-contact radar excels in powders and solids with a dielectric as low as 1.2. It measures in a very narrow 4° beam angle at distances up to 393 feet with precision of 0.2 inches. BinMaster’s GWR-1000 guided wave radar utilizes time domain reflectometry (TDR) to measure the distance to material by sending a low power microwave signal along a cable and calculating the level based upon the time of flight. It is best suited for materials with a dielectric constant greater than 2.1 in vessels up to 78’ tall.
