Guided radar level measurement without the hefty price tag
8 March 2011
It is widely accepted that guided radar provides the most accurate and reliable level measurement in many applications. However, the cost of the equipment has often been restrictive. Ever eager to make the best technology available to all, Endress+Hauser’s new Levelflex range introduces entry level options for both liquids and solids.
While other low cost guided radar instruments have restrictions on the type of liquids that can be measured, the Levelflex FMP50 is suitable for any liquid media. In fact, the instrument has the same wide ranging functionality as the other members of Endress+Hauser’s Levelflex family, including an integrated data memory and availability for system integration with HART 4...20 mA analogue and PROFIBUS PA. Cost savings are offered through a simplification of the process connection options and by utilising a lower cost housing, making the FMP50 an economically attractive basic device for supply and storage applications, as well as utility metering processes.
For solids measurement, those seeking reliable level readings in dusty environments, high and narrow silos or in vessels with obstacles now have a cost effective option in the Levelflex FMP56.
Both instruments can be simply integrated into asset management systems. They hold ATEX, IEC Ex, FM and CSA approvals and can be used for level monitoring up to SIL 2. With prices starting from just £725, Levelflex offers the low cost guided radar level solution the process industries have been waiting for.
