radar level gauges, sharing the same antenna / tank opening. The
duplicate, galvanically isolated electronic units are located in the same
The 5900 gauge can be equipped with any of the following antennas,
depending on tank and nozzle type:
· Parabolic Antenna
for general use in tanks without still-pipe.
Can also be used in a demanding tank
environment, to measure on sticky liquids etc
· Horn Antenna
for fixed roof installation without still-pipe
· Still-Pipe Array Antenna,
for measurement in existing still-pipes
