Endress+Hauser Micropilot FWR30 provides tank level measurement from anywhere.
Endress+Hauser has developed the Micropilot FWR30, a wireless 80GHz IIoT sensor that combines measurement technology and digital services. The FWR30’s basic setup covers level measurement in plastic and open tanks. An optional process connection enables measurement of media in metal tanks. Besides level data, users also receive location tracking information for their storage tanks and containers. The sensor is plug and play and can be installed, without special tools, in less than three minutes, the company says. The unit has an integrated battery and its free space radar sensor covers measuring ranges up to 15 metres and temperatures between -20°C and 60°C.
