Magnetrol Introduces Pulsar Model R86 Non-Contact Radar Transmitter
Magnetrol International launches the Pulsar Model R86 Non-Contact Radar transmitter, an advanced level control solution that offers radar technology with improved performance.
The 26GHz radar signal has a smaller wavelength, according to Magnetrol, resulting in smaller antennas and improved 1mm resolution. This is reportedly an important distinction for demanding process conditions because the smaller beam angle allows for installation into process connections as small as 1½”. As a result, The Pulsar Model R86 offers precise, dependable control for a complete spectrum of level applications.
The user interface experience of the Pulsar Model R86 is driven by advanced diagnostics. Automated echo capture conveys real-time waveform and trend data so users can assess the situation at a glance. The event history shows up to 20 events including diagnostic and configuration data to pinpoint any issues. Troubleshooting tips are also given to provide practical solutions that can help companies reduce downtime.
The Pulsar Model R86 uses circular polarization, which means there’s no need to rotate the antenna to ensure proper orientation. This simplifies installation and delivers proper alignment in virtually every application, according to Magnetrol. High temperature antennas are designed for use in extremely demanding applications and punishing conditions up to 400oC (750oF). Nozzle extensions range from 10 cm to 1.8 meters (4” to 72”), meaning nonstandard nozzle lengths and buried vessel standpipes are not an issue.
