Guided Wave Radar Magnetrol® pioneered guided wave radar (GWR) by introducing the ECLIPSE® Model 705 two-wire, loop-powered transmitter for use in industrial liquid level applications. GWR offered users a powerful way to measure and control challenging media and process variations with unprecedented performance. Over the years, our engineers continued to drive GWR innovation with the release of the first high-temperature, high-pressure probe; the first patented steam probe; the first interface transmitter; and culminating in the incorporation of GWR into a patented Aurora® MLI chamber to...

Guided Wave Radar - 4

An Introduction to Guided Wave Radar Technology When MAGNETROL introduced guided wave radar technology to liquid level applications for the process industry, it filled a critical need of providing exceptionally robust level measurement under challenging process conditions. Guided wave radar continues to deliver premier performance because it is virtually unaffected by density variance, as well as media conditions where turbulence, vaporization, foaming, boiling and flashing can occur. Principle of Operation Guided wave radar functions according to the principle of time domain reflectometry...

ECLIPSE Model 706 Transmitter Advanced GWR Transmitter for Level Measurement High Performance, Low Power The ECLIPSE Model 706 transmitter is an advanced two-wire, 24 VDC, loop-powered transmitter. Microprocessor-based circuitry controls the measurement engine and provides an analog 4-20 mA signal with HART® or FOUNDATION fieldbus™ digital communication output. Using GWR technology, ECLIPSE measurement performance is not process-dependent; therefore, changing specific gravity and dielectric constant have little or no effect on measurement accuracy. The measurement engine of ECLIPSE is...

Superior Signal Performance Breakthrough innovation in the transmitter GWR circuitry allows the Model 706 to achieve both a higher transmit pulse amplitude and improved receiver sensitivity, resulting in superior signal-to-noise ratio as compared to competitive GWR devices. While GWR options on the market today promote the amplitude (size) of transmitted radar pulse, a far more important parameter in reliable level measurement in difficult applications is the overall signal-to-noise ratio (SNR). The MAGNETROL ECLIPSE Model 706 uses an innovative design concept called Diode Switched Front...

Overfill Capable Probes A unique feature to the ECLIPSE Model 706 transmitter is the Overfill Capability of many of the probes in its offering. Although European agencies like WHG or VLAREM certify Overfill Proof protection, defined as the tested, reliable operation when the transmitter is used as an overfill alarm, it is assumed in their analysis that the installation is designed in such a way that the vessel or side-mounted cage cannot physically overfill. Experience has shown us that there are practical applications where a GWR probe can be completely flooded with level all the way up to...
