80 GHz Non-Contact Radar for Solids

Model: NCR-80

The BinMaster NCR-80 is a non-contact radar level sensor designed for superior performance in extremely dusty powders and bulk solids. Its powerful 80 GHz frequency focused in a narrow 4° beam angle with a measuring range up to 393 feet and accuracy within 0.2 inches means it excels in tall and narrow vessels. The NCR-80 is offered with a 10°swiveling, stainless steel flange for precise targeting; a lightweight plastic antenna with an 8° swiveling flange or a mounting strap for adjustable targeting; or a 1-1/2" NPT mounting option for use in an existing process connection. The NCR-80 is resistant to interference, while its advanced filters ensure rapid signal processing and an update rate of less than one second.
