Pulsar™ – Pulse Burst Radar – Level Transmitter

The Pulsar Pulse Burst Radar level transmitter is the latest generation of loop-powered, 24 VDC, liquid level transmitters. It has lower power consumption, faster response time and is easier to use than most loop-powered radar transmitters.

Measurement Principle : 

Pulsar is based on pulse-burst radar technology together with equivalent time sampling circuitry. Short bursts of 5.8 or 6.3 GHz microwave energy are emitted and subsequently reflected from the liquid level surface.

Features : 

  • Performance not process dependent (changing specific gravity and dielectric have no effect)
  • 5.8/6.3 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 65 feet (20 meters)
  • Quick connect/disconnect probe coupling allows vessel to remain sealed (patent pending)
  • Safety Integrity Level (SIL) value of 1

Applications : 

  • Liquids and slurries
  • Hydrocarbons to water-based media (dielectric 1.7 – 100)
  • Most process or storage vessels
  • Pits and pumps
  • Non-metallic tanks such as plastic, glass-lined and concrete

Options : 

  • HART® digital communications
  • 316 stainless steel dual compartment enclosure
  • 4″ and 6″ horn antennas
  • Polypropylene and Teflon® rod antennas
  • Antenna nozzle extensions
  • PACTware™ PC software interface
