Guided Wave Radar with Modbus RTU: GWR-2000

The GWR-2000 from BinMaster utilizes time domain reflectometry (TDR) to continuously measure the level, distance, and volume of solids or powders in tanks, bins, and silos. This sensor features a very small upper dead zone, hazardous location approvals, and assures extremely precise level measurement in low dielectric materials down to 1.3. It consists of 4-20 mA and Modbus RTU communication options, making it well-matched with PLC or HMI, as well as BinMaster’s BinView cloud-based monitoring or Binventory LAN-based software program.
