A new line of compact non-contact radar – aka CNCR – level sensors from BinMaster (Lincoln, NE) puts 80 GHz of precision to work measuring simple and aggressive liquids. Small in stature, but big on features, these sensors are set up simply using Bluetooth and the Wireless Device Configurator app loaded on a smartphone or tablet. The app can also be used to diagnose and change display parameters once the sensor is installed from up to 80 feet away. Features include:
- Zero dead zone, measuring up to the sensor face, making them very accurate and ideal for smaller vessels and simple applications.
- The ability to measure through plastic vessel walls or lids, foam, vapor and steam. The CNCR is not affected by fluctuations in temperature or condensation.
- 2-wire 4-20 mA and 4-wire Modbus outputs. The CNCR sends measurement data to an HMI or PLC or to the BinView web application or Binventory software for viewing on a phone, tablet or PLC. Level data can also be output to a digital panel meter or control console for local walk or drive up access.
