Products 80 GHz BinMaster video

The NCR-80 from BinMaster is a non-contact radar level sensor designed for extremely dusty powder and bulk solid applications. It operates at 80 GHz frequency, focused in a narrow 4° beam angle with a measuring range up to 393 ft and accuracy within 0.2 in., meaning it excels in tall and narrow vessels, the company says.

The beam angle allows for precise aiming to avoid the flow stream, internal structure, or sidewall buildup, it adds. Narrow focusing also simplifies setup, as the signal will reflect only from the measured material being targeted.

The BinMaster radar level sensor is resistant to interference, while its filters are said to ensure rapid signal processing and an update rate of less than 1 s, while firmware constantly tracks echoes and automatically eliminates false echoes for reliable performance.

Watch video demonstration:

The sensor is offered with a 10° swiveling, stainless steel flange for more precise targeting; a lightweight plastic antenna with an 8° swiveling flange or a mounting strap for adjustable targeting; or a 1-1/2 in. NPT mounting option for use in an existing process connection.
