Registered Product Information

Manufacturer: AMETEK Magnetrol
Product Name: Pulsar Model R96
Product Description: Non - Contact
Category: Level
Profile: FOUNDATION Field Device
More Information: The Pulsar Model R96 is a key component in the family of Magnetrol Non-Contact RADAR transmitters. This RADAR level transmitter is designed to provide unparalleled performance and ease of use. The Pulsar R96 transmitter is based on pulse burst radar technology combined with equivalent time sampling. Short bursts of 6 GHz microwave energy are emitted and subsequently reflected from the liquid level surface. The Pulsar R96 transmitter can be used to detect overall level in a variety of applications ranging from hydrocarbons to water-based media (Dielectric constant 1.7 to 100). Features: • Level measurement not affected by changing media characteristics • 6.2 GHz operating frequency offers superior performance in the tougher applications with turbulence, foam, and heavy vapors • Low dielectric measurement capability, Er>1.7  • No need to move levels for calibration • Range up to 130 feet (40 meters) • Proactive diagnostics advise not only what is wrong, but also offer troubleshooting tips • Quick connect/disconnect antenna coupling allows vessel to remain sealed • Antenna designs up to +400° F/750 psi (+200° C/51 bar) • 4-button keypad and graphic LCD display allow for convenient viewing of configuration parameters and echo curve • False Target setup is simple, intuitive, and effective • IS, XP, FISCO, Non-Incendive approvals • No moving parts

Device Support File Usage

FieldComm Group (FCG) makes available to its members and to the public certain device driver (DD) files, in various forms, that have passed certain tests conducted by or through FCG. The DD files are, or are created from, submissions to FCG by FCG members and are provided by FCG AS IS. FCG disclaims all liability for the accuracy, suitability or use of the DD files. Each member creating DD files has its own policies regarding supporting use of those files, and may, for instance support use of DD object code files, but not DeviceInfo or other files. While FCG is under no obligation to provide support for use of any DD files, FCG welcomes all inquiries on the subject and will often be able to assist.
