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…
