Guided Wave Radar Level Measurement

Technology

Guided Wave Radar (GWR) is a contacting level measurement method that uses a probe to guide high frequency, electromagnetic waves as they travel down from a transmitter to the media being measured. GWR is based upon the principle of Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR), allowing the sensor to output the analyzed level as a continuous measurement reading through its analog output, or convert the values into freely positional switching output signals. Dust, foam, vapor, agitated surfaces, boiling surfaces, changes in pressure, temperature, dielectric constant and density do not have an effect on device performance.
