Radiometric measurement transmitter fits challenging environments

The Endress+Hauser Gammapilot FMG50 level measurement device incorporates a 2-wire compact transmitter that requires only a fraction of the energy of its predecessor to achieve comparable measurement performance.

This technology, the first of its kind, the company says, offers many user benefits over existing compact radiometric measurement transmitters, all of which require external power supplies that add to their cost and complexity.

The unit uses a unique, patented high voltage generation to overcome that limitation; its 2-wire connectivity supplies signal and adequate power without the need for external power. The device adds many enhancements over its predecessor in performing level measurement for liquids or solids in process vessels such as reactors and autoclaves.

It also performs density and interface measurements and is suitable for use where other measuring principles cannot be applied due to corrosion, abrasion, viscosity or toxicity.  Fields of application include the oil and gas sector as well as the mining and metals, cement and chemical industries.

Operators also can communicate with the sensor using Bluetooth technology and the company’s SmartBlue app. All product and diagnostic data are available for employees at a safe distance from measuring points in hard-to-reach or hazardous areas.
