Radar Level Transmitter

RD980 (Non-Ex Narrow Beam Angle With 120m Range)

rd980 radar level transmitter 76-81ghz

Radar level transmitter RD980 heralds a new era of RADAR LEVEL measurement. Compared to the traditional 6 or 26Ghz meters, the RD980 uses a higher radar frequency of 76-81GHz, with shorter wavelength, smaller beam angle and more concentrated energy.

  • Higher transmitting frequency of 76-81GHz allows better focusing
  • Superior performance in extremely dusty powdered and bulk solid environment
  • Long distance measuring range up to 120m
  • FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) algorithm increases precision and computational efficiency
  • Easy installation due to smaller antenna size
  • Performance is unaffected by density, pressure and temperature
  • No mechanical moving parts
  • 4-20 mA with HART protocol, RS485 option

RD980 radar level transmitter supports continuous level measurement in powders and solids such as:

  • Cement
  • Coal
  • Iron ore
  • Fly ash
  • Plastic granular
  • Lime slurry
  • Pulp & paper
  • Corn, soybean, flour
