The new Optiwave 6500C from KROHNE, the manufacturer and supplier of solutions in industrial process instrumentation, is a radar level transmitter for powders and dusty atmospheres.

It delivers continuous high measurement in silos, hoppers and containers, KROHNE said in a statement, which it added makes it “an optimal product for bulk storage in mining, minerals, chemicals, power, paper, food and beverage industries.”

It said the radar offers several advanced technological features, including an 80 GHz (FMCW) band width radar and a 70mm lens antenna, “making it ideal for environments with low-reflective media. With a measuring range extending over 100 meters, the Optiwave 6500C is a perfect choice for uneven surfaces or tanks with obstacles”. 

Other advanced features include PEEK Lens antennas with concave and convex lenses for distances up to 100 metres, and a large backlit LCD screen with a 4-button keypad, “ensuring flexibility for different radar usage”.
