Difference between solid state radar and magnetron

Solid state radar and magnetron are two radar techniques that work in competition with each other. However, solid state radar is known to be of a higher quality and has a higher operational preference as compared to Magnetron radar. Below are some of the differences between the two.   Solid state radar 1.    Low Maintenance: Solid…

What is Marine Doppler radar?

A Doppler radar is a specialized radar that employs the use of Doppler Effect to produce velocity data on objects that are positioned at a certain distance. This is achieved by bouncing a microwave signal off from a desired target and then calculating how the motion of the object has affected or altered the frequency…

100 Applications or Uses of LiDAR Technology

LiDAR technology is a remote sensing technology that measures the distance to an object by illuminating the target with laser and then analyzing the reflected light. The laser pulses travel at the speed of light to the object and the laser is then reflected back to the sensors. The time taken for the pulses to…

Ultrasonic Vs Radar Level Measurement Techniques

A little competition between two rival entities always spices things up. This is true even in the level measurement world where two most commonly used methods, the Ultrasonic level measurement and the Radar level measurement compete for supremacy. The ultrasonic technique uses sound-based measurements while the radar technique use high frequency electromagnetic waves. Below are…

Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter Principle

How it works Guided Wave Radar is also known as the Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) or in simpler terms, micro-impulse radar. When guided wave radar unit is being installed, the GWR sensor or gauge is usually mounted on top of a tank or chamber while the probe is extended to the full depth of the…

Guided Wave Radar vs. Non-Contact Radar

Non-contact radar is radar that is based on microwave technology that sends the microwave signals through the air and not a medium. On the other hand, Guided Wave Radar instruments uses wave guide “probes” to guide radio waves into a process fluid. Both of these techniques are used to measure the surface level of fluids…

What does RADAR stand for?

RADAR stands for Radio Detection and Ranging. As the name suggests, RADAR transmission is dependent on the use of radio signals to transmit data. RADAR systems work by sending or relaying electromagnetic waves much like wireless networks or computer networks. The radio signals from RADAR systems are sent out as short pulses and as they…
