Siemens Adds To Sitrans LR100 Series Of 80 GHz Radar Transmitters

Optional HMI delivers easy commissioning and diagnostic support.

Siemens presents two new additions to the Sitrans LR100 series of 80 GHz radar transmitters. These high-frequency, compact transmitters deliver robust, reliable measurements even in the most challenging environments, according to Siemens. Both deliver fast and easy setup. Sitrans LR140 features 4-20 mA simplicity and is configured via Bluetooth wireless technology and the Sitrans mobile IQ App.

Sitrans LR150 offers a four-button user interface on an optional HMI for configuration or monitoring. Configuration is also available via Bluetooth wireless technology and the Sitrans mobile IQ App or remotely with 4-20 mA/HART using Simatic PDM.

The easy-to-use Quick Start Wizard makes the transmitter operational in minutes. Custom microchip technology reportedly delivers fast response and extremely high sensitivity to detect even the weakest of signals.

Reliable readings mean reduced operator exposure to hazardous situations: no need to climb tanks, lean out over sumps or crawl into confined spaces to maintain instruments. Zero blanking distance allows measurement right up to the sensor, avoiding costly overfilling. And two-millimeter accuracy enhances operational safety through precise measurement through the full range of the application. The transmitter features a submersible housing constructed of corrosion-resistant materials.

Integrating critical level readings or process control data into operations can unlock new opportunities to react to safety concerns, analyze processes and identify areas for improvement. Users can monitor level measurements or diagnostic and maintenance information from the comfort of the control room or connect to Siemens MindSphere, the cloud based, open IoT operating system or any other IoT offering of their choice.
