Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter

Aplus Finetek Sensor, Inc. is pleased to announce the introduction of the JTR Series Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter.  Using state-of-the-art TDR technology, the JTR continuously measures the level of powders, granular and liquid materials within bins, silos and tanks.  The JTR features an easy-to-install 2-wire loop power supply and provides a 4-20mA output which changes with material level.  It is very cost effective and reliable.


Key features of the JTR guided wave radar level transmitter include cost effective 2-wire power supply to simplify installation, optionally available HART digital communications; built-in display for easy setup; a wide range of mounting connection sizes and types; 5mm measurement accuracy with rapid level reading; reduced maintenance with no calibration required and no moving parts; can withstand CIP process; dual liquid level interface measurement; and able to measure sticky and paste like medium in the process.

The JTR uses Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) technology.  Radar pulses are guided to the material surface and back to the JTR by a wave guide, probe, rod or cable, and the time of flight is precisely measured and directly corresponds to the empty space distance within the vessel.

Guided wave radar level transmitter is capable of measuring the low dielectric constant of solid level, liquid level and two different liquid medium level interfaces.  Guided wave radar devices have no moving parts and require minimum maintenance. The product models include coaxial, tube/rod, and steel wire cable and is suitable for high temperature and high pressure medium liquid level measurement.
