A manufacturer and supplier of solutions in industrial process instrumentation has announced its new Optiwave 6500C - a radar level transmitter for powders and dusty atmospheres.
KROHNE’s Optiwave 6500C aims to deliver continuous high measurement in silos, hoppers and containers.
The device is an optimal product for bulk storage in mining, minerals, chemicals, power, paper, food and beverage industries.
The radar offers several advanced technological features, including an 80 GHz (FMCW) band width radar and a 70mm lens antenna, making it ideal for environments with low-reflective media. With a measuring range extending over 100 metres, the product works on uneven surfaces or tanks with obstacles.
Other advanced features include PEEK lens antennas with both concave and convex lenses for distances up to 100 meters and a large backlit LCD screen with a 4-button keypad, ensuring flexibility for different radar usage.
The Optiwave 6500C is used in both animal food production and cereals storage, already serving nearly fifty production facilities in Germany alone.
