All Around Radar
The gold standard
The NCR-80 is BinMaster’s gold standard and the most robust radar we offer. There are three versions of the NCR-80 including a metal-jacketed lens antenna, a plastic horn antenna, and a 1-1/2” NPT threaded model making it highly adaptable to many materials and industries.
There are countless configurations of the NCR-80 offering a diverse selection of approvals, mounting options, specialized seals, output options, and housings. Inventory can be viewed on any of the BinCloud® web applications, Binventory® LAN-based software, or a PLC as well as C-100-R consoles and digital panel meter displays.
Maintenance-Free Antenna System
The NCR-80 antenna lens is encased in a sealed antenna system. This makes it resistant to dust buildup and virtually maintenance-free. Its flush face does not protrude into the vessel which prevents potential damage to the sensor. The plastic lens is made of durable, PEEK plastic for ruggedness and long-lasting performance. It is chemical resistant for tough applications and has FDA approval making it suitable for food and pharmaceutical use.

How they work
Signals and echos
80GHz Radar Signal
The sensor transmits a continuous 80 GHz radar signal through the face of the antenna. The signal is reflected off the material surface and received as an echo by the antenna. The frequency difference between the sent and received signals is converted to a measurement that represents the distance to the material surface.
The distance is calculated based on the vessel height programmed into the unit when it is set up. Setup can be performed without the vessel being emptied to save time.
The measurement output is the distance from the face of the antenna to the material surface. Measurements are displayed in inches, feet, or meters.
Why use 80GHz technology?
Non-contact radar technology delivers extremely high measurement accuracy of +/-0 .2 inches.
80 GHz radar performs reliably in harsh conditions and dusty environments and far surpasses the performance of its 26 GHz predecessors. BinMaster sensors utilize 80 GHz technology that focuses the radar signal in a very narrow beam angle. This means the measurement point can be targeted to avoid structure in a vessel or a filling stream.
Radar level sensors are an alternative to using ultrasonic sensors or pressure transmitters to measure liquid levels contained in tanks or open-air applications. Our non-contact radars are extremely reliable in condensation, turbulence, and foam. The narrow beam can be used in confined vessels or standpipes and aimed to avoid pipes or structures that could interfere with the signal.
Measurements are not affected by:
- changing process conditions like fluctuating temperature or pressure
- excessive humidity, steam, or vapors
- noise from process operations, filling, conveyors, or railcars
- buildup or condensation that occurs on the sensor face
More Mounting Flexibility
With multiple mounting options, there is no on-site fabrication needed. Plus, you will likely be able to use an existing roof flange. This will simplify installation while saving you time and money. BinMaster offers a wide variety of mounting plates for angled roofs as well as swiveling flanges and mounting straps that allow for aiming.
Swivel Mounts for Aiming
For aiming flexibility, a 10° swiveling holder for the metal jacketed version of the NCR-80 comes in 4”, 6”, or 8” flange sizes to allow for precise aiming to the output of the vessel. For the NCR-80 plastic horn antenna version, 8° directional aiming is available with 3”, 4”, 6”, or 8” adapter flanges.
Flat and Angled Mounting Plates
Not all roofs are flat throughout the process industries. Therefore, in addition to the affordable 0° mounting plate, BinMaster offers 10°, 30°, and 45° mounting plates with a 4” ANSI flange. The 30° angle is especially prominent in the grain industry, where dust-penetrating 80 GHz non-contact radar is a popular sensor in corn and soybeans.
The CNCR series of 80 GHz compact non-contact radar level sensors have a measuring range up to 26, 49, or 98 feet depending on the model selected. Use them in smaller bins, tanks, or silos or where space is tight. Rugged and weather resistant, they can also be used in outdoor municipal or environmental applications or over pits and lagoons for animal waste management. You can install the CNCR in existing vessel openings, use a BinMaster swivel mount, wall mounting bracket, or mounting plate, or non-intrusively when measuring levels in plastic vessels.
