Liquid gold: Radar level sensor gives full transparency

A cloud-connected radar, which provides full transparency in the storage and transport of liquids has been released by Endress & Hauser.

This 80GHz wireless IIoT sensor combines high-end technology and user-friendly digital services in one cost-effective device.

The instrument’s continuously recorded measurement data can be accessed at any time, from anywhere due to the device's cloud connection, with communication made possible by an integrated SIM card.

Installation can be done in less than three minutes. An integrated battery allows operation without an external power supply, a particular advantage for measuring points that are difficult to access.

This compact device is a perfect fit for stackable tanks and enables a plug-and-play solution for flexible and easy installation.

In addition to the measured level, users receive information on the location of their storage tanks and containers via the cellular communication system.

The instrument provides facts where previously only assumptions were possible, helping users optimise logistic and storage processes and save valuable time by providing continuous and easy access to inventory information.

The Micropilot FWR30 can be used for level measurement and inventory management of mobile and stationary plastic tanks. In addition, the tracking of mobile storage tanks is also possible.

The free radiating measuring device covers measuring ranges up to 50 feet and temperatures between -4°F and +140°F.

Because it uses non-contact measurement, the Micropilot FWR30 can be used in all liquid media. It is resistant to corrosion, abrasion, viscosity or toxicity and can be used in a variety of industries.

Depending on individual requirements, users can choose from a broad portfolio of services, that include Netilion Value and SupplyCare Hosting.

All digital software applications can be used on various end devices such as desktop, tablet or smartphone, and comply with the highest security and data protection requirements.
