VF03 Guided Wave Radar

TDR gauge and level measurement for liquids

Hycontrol's Reflex VF Series range of TDR guided microwave products is ideal for the measurement of liquids, powders and granules, and is unaffected by pressure, temperature, viscosity, vacuum, foam, dust, coating or changes in dielectric constant. The probes are durable and highly reliable.

The VF03 measures up to a maximum range of 24m with an accuracy of +/- 5mm, making it an ideal choice for a wide variety of applications. The units can measure virtually any product in direct mode utilising any one of the seven available probe types.

The principle of operation is simple: pulses of low power microwaves are sent along conductors. At the point where the wave meets the product surface, it is reflected by the product. The instrument measures the time between emission and reception which is proportional to the distance.
