Endress+Hauser 80 GHz radar sensors boosts safety and productivity in one easy-to-use measuring device.
Endress+Hauser debuted its latest generation of Micropilot 80 GHz radar sensors. Comprised of the Micropilot FMR60B, FMR62B, FMR63B, FMR66B and FMR67B, the line includes versions suited to challenging process conditions such as aggressive media or extreme process temperatures. The sensor features a new radar chip combined with Heartbeat Technology monitoring function to increase productivity and avoid downtime. It also includes integrated digital assistants operated via Bluetooth and the company’s SmartBlue app. In addition to HART or Profibus, the Mircopilot also supports the Ethernet-APL protocol. It has been developed in accordance with IEC 61508 and can therefore be used in SIL2 or SIL3 applications.
