How they work

Signals and echos

80 GHz 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 80 GHz technology?

Non-contact radar technology delivers extremely high measurement accuracy of +/-0 .2 inches.

In solids

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 to focus 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.

In liquids

Radar level sensors are superior to using ultrasonic sensors or pressure transmitters to measure liquid levels contained in tanks or open-air applications. BinMaster non-contact radars are extremely dependable in condensation, turbulence, and foam. The narrow beam can be used in confined vessels or standpipes and aimed to avoid agitators, pipes, or structures that could interfere with the signal.

Radar 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.

CNCR Compact

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.

Use Binventory to send automated high and low-level alerts via text or email, visualize vessel levels, and generate usage reports. This one-time software purchase can be used by one end user or installed across your entire organization with no per-user licensing fees.

    This advanced software platform is compatible with non-contact radars and other BinMaster continuous level sensors or just about any sensor using the Modbus RTU or HART protocol. This makes Binventory a complete on-site solution for managing the inventory of either solids or liquids contained in bins, tanks, or silos.
