Non-contact level measurement with radar

In continuous non-contact level measurement with radar, the sensor sends microwave signals towards the medium from above. The surface of the medium reflects the signals back in the direction of the sensor. Using the received microwave signals, the sensor determines the distance to the product surface and calculates the level from it. Liquids and solids are commonly measured with this measuring technique.

The right radar level measurement device for every application

Take your level measurement to the next level - with our diverse portfolio of radar level measurement devices for every application. Non-contact radar sensors offer an efficient and safe measurement method in difficult environments. Explosion-proof radar sensors extend this concept and provide the necessary safety in potentially hazardous environments by meeting stringent safety standards and being robustly constructed to withstand extreme conditions. Such sensors are essential in industries where safety and reliability are paramount. VEGA devices have worldwide approvals, e.g. for use in hazardous areas, on ships or for hygienic applications. With digitalisation, which makes it possible to control processes and save resources at the same time. This is all part of our portfolio for level measurement with radar.

Level measurement with radar is based on electromagnetic waves. Using special types of antenna, a radar sensor emits a bundled electromagnetic wave in the direction of the material without contact, which is reflected by objects as an echo and analysed by the sensor.

Non-contact radar sensors are generally characterised by their frequency, as this is important for non-contact level measurement in process or storage tanks. Radar sensors with high frequencies can be built more compactly, have smaller beam angles and better reflection properties, which ultimately leads to precise and reliable measurement results. This is why octogon's free-beam radar sensors also work with 80 GHz technology. The 80 GHz technology enables focussed and precise level measurement, even in confined spaces.

Our radar level sensors guarantee very high measuring accuracy, even with abrasive and aggressive media. The level sensors reliably detect bulk solids and liquids in various silos, tanks and process containers with a short response time.

Precise and reliable level measurement with radar technology

Precise level measurement is crucial for efficient process control and storage in industry. Our radar level sensors offer you non-contact, continuous measurement that is independent of medium properties such as dust or condensation.

How does radar level measurement work?

This measuring principle is based on the transmission and reflection of high-frequency radar pulses. The transit time of these pulses to the surface of the product is proportional to the fill level. This non-contact method enables precise and reliable measurement without wear.

Advantages of radar level measurement:

  • Continuous, non-contact measurement
  • Independent of medium properties such as dust or condensation
