Non-Contact Radar – 80GHz for Solids

The BinMaster NCR-80 is a non-contact radar level sensor designed specifically for superior performance in powders and bulk solids. It uses a powerful 80 GHz frequency focused in a narrow 4° beam angle that allows for precise aiming to avoid the flow stream, internal structure, or sidewall buildup. This ensures reliable performance at measuring ranges up to 393 feet and accuracy within 0.2 inches. The NCR-80 is resistant to interference, while its advanced filters ensure rapid signal processing and an update rate of less than one second. Its advanced firmware constantly tracks echoes and automatically eliminates false echoes for reliable performance. The NCR-80 is ideal for continuous, single-point level measurement in tall and narrow vessels where there is excessive noise or dust.

Product Description

Applications

  • Cement, grain, power, wood chips, pellets, sand, aggregates or plastics
  • Very tall, narrow silos for single point level measurement
