Liquid Level Sensor

The NCR-84 from BinMaster, Lincoln, NE, is an 80-GHz radar sensor used for continuous, noncontact level measurement in liquids. It is designed specifically for measurement in excessive steam, vapor, condensation, or surface foam. The signal is focused in a very narrow beam angle, allowing for precise aiming to avoid obstructions in a tank such as agitators, mixers, fittings, or heating coils. The sensor is offered in threaded, flange, and hygienic versions for a variety of applications. A plastic antenna option enables use in low pressure or temperature ranges.
