Senator S80L FMCW 80GHz Radar for Liquids
The Senator S80L FMCW 80GHz Radar Level Transmitter is designed specifically to measure liquids in narrow tanks with internal obstructions. This device is a non-contact radar level transmitter that uses FMCW technology. It measures distance, level, and volume of liquids and pastes. It has an empty spectrum function that filters false reflections caused by equipment inside the tank.

Principle of Operation
Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) technology features a continuous signal transmission, providing immediate measurement updates with zero delays. Unlike pulse radar, where the transmitter sends a pulse and then stop and waits for a reflection - FMCW radar emits a continuous signal. It determines the distance to the target by measuring the frequency difference between the emitted and the reflected signals. This frequency change is also called the "Doppler Shift" of the returned signal.
