80 GHz Non-Contact Radar for Solids: NCR-80

The NCR-80 from BinMaster is a non-contact radar level sensor engineered for greater performance in bulk solids and very dusty powders. Its robust 80 GHz frequency focused in a narrow 4° beam angle having a measuring range up to 393 feet and accuracy within 0.2" means it performs extremely well in tall and narrow vessels.

The NCR-80 is provided with a lightweight plastic antenna with an 8° swiveling flange; a 10° swiveling, stainless steel flange for exact targeting; or a mounting strap for modifiable targeting; or a 1-1/2" NPT mounting option for use in a current process connection. The NCR-80 is resistant to interference, while its innovative filters guarantee fast signal processing and an update rate of below one second.

Applications

  • Grain, powder, cement, pellets, sand, wood chips, plastics, or aggregates
  • Vessels with extreme dust, noise, or high temperatures
  • Vessels where precise aiming is desirable to avoid flow stream, sidewall buildup, or internal structure
  • Very narrow, tall silos for single-point level measurement
  • Level measurement of pits or piles
  • Low dielectric materials or materials with narrow reflectivity
  • Over conveyors belts to avoid overloading or sense when belts are running empty
  • Mounted over piled material in flat storage warehouses
  • Measure levels within equipment, such as ESP hoppers or crushers
