Siemens’ SITRANS LR560 2-wire, 78 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter allows for continuous monitoring of solids in silos to a range of 100 meters (328 feet). SITRANS LR560’s plug-and-play performance is ideal for most solids applications, including those with extreme dust and high temperatures to +200 degrees C (+392 degrees F). The unique design allows safe and simple programming using the safe handheld programmer without having to open the instrument’s lid. SITRANS LR560 includes an optional graphical local display interface (LDI) that improves setup and operation using an intuitive Quick Start Wizard and echo profile display for diagnostic support. Startup is easy using the Quick Start Wizard with a few parameters required for basic operation. With its narrow beam and small antenna, the high frquency 78 GHz SITRANS LR560 is ideal for grain silos. It fits in virtually any opening without silo modification, keeping installation costs low. Benefits include a rugged stainless steel design; aimer option to direct beam to area of interest such as the low level cone area; lens antenna that is highly resistant to product build up; air purge connection for self-cleaning of extremely sticky solids; and local display interface that allows for local programming and diagnostics.
