113 GHz + Your Wavelength

From the sum of 113 GHz, we respond to any of your applications with the appropriate radar frequency. In terms of engineering, we supply the complete portfolio of radar instruments to you and optimize your process automation. On a personal note, we tune into your wavelength to understand what exactly it is that you need for your specific processes.

Sometimes, a completely different measuring principle takes your processes a step ahead. Therefore, we offer the complete portfolio and not only radar. Here, you find more on the measuring principles.

Advantages 1 GHz

  • The guided radar is suitable for applications involving foam and low dielectric constant values
  • Enables interface measurement, gas phase compensation, bypass applications

Customer questions

We have baffles in several tanks. Can we actually use radar instruments in this case?

The 80 GHz technology provides improved focusing for reliable, stable measurements also in case of baffles. We recommend Micropilot NMR81 and the Micropilot FMR6x series for this measuring task.

80GHz radars are supposed to be so much better for level measurement of solid substances in storage tanks. Why?

Like for liquids there are also advantages and disadvantages for solids depending on the respective frequency.
In general there is not just “one right frequency” for all applications.
The advantages of the 80GHz radar in solids are: a longer measuring range and a smaller beam angle at same antenna size.
This allows easier installation and commissioning. The smaller beam angle allows also to measure closer to the bottom of the silo.
The antenna design of the radar can be more compact as well.

The wave length depends directly on the frequency. The higher the frequency the shorter the wave length. This has direct impact on the reflection of the respective media. With a higher frequency the damping in media is stronger.
The shorter wave length of the 80 GHz brings also disadvantages. For example in strong dust. Here a 26 GHz parabolic antenna performs better.

Conclusion: if you have a narrow and tall silo the 80GHz radar has clear advantages and cost benefits. For example no big expensive parabolic antenna is required.
If space is not a problem and a combination of low DC and strong dust occurs, a 250mm parabolic antenna with a 26GHz radar is the better choice.
