KROHNE radar level meterKROHNE's OPTIWAVE 5200 C/F is a 10 GHz FMCW radar level meter for liquid applications up to 30m/98 ft measuring range. The two-wire, loop-powered device measures level and volume in storage or process tanks with process conditions up to 250 C/482 F and pressures up to 40 bar / 580 PSI. Together with the recently launched OPTIFLEX 2200 C TDR level meter, the OPTIWAVE 5200 C has been designed and developed for use in SIL 2 safety-related systems according to IEC 61508. The OPTIWAVE 5200 C/F electronics are compatible with a wide selection of antennas. The PP and PTFE Wave Horn antennas are process-sealed by their antenna material instead of a traditional process seal construction with o-ring gaskets. These gasket-free antennas are therefore a good fit for extreme corrosive environments. The PP antenna can be mounted on process connections as small as 1½ inches. The metallic horn and waveguide antennas use a dual-seal mechanism, a combination of o-ring gaskets with a Metaglas seal, guaranteeing complete hermeticity for use in highly toxic and explosive liquids. The new meter will replace the KROHNE BM 702 A radar level meter with enhanced measurement capability (up to two measurement updates per second) and is compliant to modern process requirements such as SIL and NAMUR guidelines NE 107, 21, 43, 53.
