Pulsar® Model R96 Non-Contact Radar Transmitter


The Pulsar® Model R96 is a loop-powered, 24 VDC, non-contact radar level transmitter. It has a longer measurement range, improved diagnostics and is easier to use than most loop-powered radar transmitters.

Operating Principle


PULSAR transmitter technology is based on pulse-burst radar technology together with equivalent time sampling circuitry. Short bursts of 6 GHz microwave energy are emitted and subsequently reflected from the liquid level surface.

Applications


Media:
Liquids and Slurries
Hydrocarbons to Water Based Media
Vessels:
Process and Storage Vessels up to rated temperature and pressure
Pits and Sumps

Features


Performance not process dependent (changing specific gravity and dielectric have no effect)
6 GHz operating frequency offers superior performance in the tougher applications of turbulence, foam, and heavy vapors
Antenna designs to +400 °F (+204 °C)
Range up to 130 feet (40 meters)
Quick connect/disconnect probe coupling allows vessel to remain sealed
SIL 2 capable with Safe Failure Fraction (SFF) = 92.7% (FMEDA available upon request)
PACTware™ PC software interface with new improved DTM.
