The SITRANS LR560 is a state of the art 78 GHz FMCW radar level transmitter, often used in mining management for uninterrupted monitoring of solids in silos to a range of 100m.
This device, once coupled with the correct sensor, is used to make sure that operations in industries such as Mining can run as effectively as possible because of the assurance that there is the correct amount of solids in containers or holders at any given step of the process. The LR560 with its plug and play ease of use is fantastic for the majority of solids applications, including those with extreme dust and high temperatures reaching +200 ºC (+392 ºF). What this tool allows for is piece of mind performance as you don’t even have to open its lid for programming. Programming on this device is done simply, through its unique design using the Intrinsically Safe handheld programmer. Safety is a primary feature throughout this instrument as included in the SITRANS LR560 is switches for back-up, overfill, dry run protection and low level.
