The Impulse Guided Wave Radar - Measures Level, Distance or Volumetric Outputs

A two-wire guided radar, the Impulse accurately measures Total Level, Distance or Volumetric outputs on all liquids and slurries. This is enabled via the field tested and proven TDR level (Time Domain Reflectometry) technology, which allows it to remain in stable operation when similar sensors would have failed.

Even in difficult environments that can cause agitated, or irregular surfaces, foam or coating of the probe, the Impulse will deliver reliable and accurate measurements. There are often conditions that make ultrasonic level or hydrostatic measurement difficult such as changes in density and dielectric properties, dust, vapor, and turbulence, but the radar will penetrate all of these to ensure reliable results.

Mechanical dispenser systems can be expensive, but with a large variety of probe types and material selections for every situation, the Impulse is the ideal replacement.

It is also both simple to install and to use. The setup takes five minutes, all that is required is the level measurement type and the operating language, with no calibration or setup of levels needed. After this the interface features are easy to navigate, with push-button configurations and HART communications.

The Impulse guided wave radar is intrinsically safe, explosion proof and non-incendive.
