NCR-80: Non-Contact Radar for Solids

The BinMaster NCR-80 is a non-contact radar level sensor that is designed for superior performance in bulk solids and extremely dusty powders. It possesses a powerful 80 GHz frequency that is focused in a narrow 4 ° beam angle. This has an accuracy that is within 0.2 inches and measuring range of up to 393 feet, so it excels in narrow and tall vessels.

For precise targeting, the NCR-80 is provided with a stainless steel, 10 ° swiveling flange, a 1-1/2" NPT mounting option for use in an existing process connection, or a lightweight plastic antenna with an 8 ° swiveling flange or mounting strap for adjustable targeting.

The NCR-80 is resistant to interference and its advanced filters ensure fast signal processing and an update rate of under a second.
