OPTIWAVE x400 / x500
FMCW Radar Level Transmitter
FOUNDATION Field Device
The KROHNE OPTIWAVE x400 / x500 radars are all FMCW based level transmitter and suited for liquids and solids.
The OPTIWAVE 5400 / 6400 / 7400 (24 GHz) and OPTIWAVE 3500 / 6500 / 7500 (80 GHz) radars are each designed for specific industry needs. It brings a reliable and accurate level measurement of liquids and solids, even in most difficult applications.
The OPTIWAVE 6400 and OPTIWAVE 6500 are instruments for measuring solids. The 24 GHz OPTIWAVE 6400 is equipped with the proven Drop antenna. Insensitive to product build-up, it is designed for granulates and rocks in silos or bulk storage. The 80 GHz OPTIWAVE 6500 has a flush Lens antenna: its narrow radar beam is best suited for powders and dusty atmospheres.
The OPTIWAVE 3500, one of the new 80 GHz instruments, is aimed at hygienic applications in the food, beverage and pharmaceutical markets. It has a wide range of hygienic connections and can measure level right up to the process connection. Thanks to its narrow beam angle, it is capable of measuring in tall and narrow tanks.
The OPTIWAVE 5400 and OPTIWAVE 7400 are 24 GHz FMCW radars. Due to a high dynamic range, they measure distances up to 100 m; 328 ft. The OPTIWAVE 5400 is the entry level device for most application requirements. The OPTIWAVE 7400 covers all applications and comes with a quick coupling system that makes it possible to remove the housing under process conditions. A wide range of antennas and process connections are available, including a flange plate protection for corrosive applications.
In applications with narrow tanks or long nozzles, the OPTIWAVE 7500 with 80 GHz FMCW radar technology and its reduced radar beam is the best choice. This radar features a PEEK Lens antenna and measures the level of a product from the flange down to the container bottom over a distance of 100 m; 328 ft.
