*Specifications are subject to change without prior notice.

TGR3000 is a 2-wire continuous level-measuring instrument using micro-pulse reflection. The measurements of the level of liquids, slurries and solids, and the interface of oil and water, etc. can be made. And analog output function is equipped.

The micro-pulse emitted from the level meter propagates along the fixed probe in the tank. And the level of the liquid or solid is measured by measuring the propagation time of the micro-pulse, which is reflected at the surface of the liquid or solid. The velocity of the micro-pulse propagation is hardly influenced by the change in temperature and pressure, so the high accuracy measurement can be made regardless of any change in the measurement condition.

And the loss of micro-pulse diffusion is so little that the measurement of low dielectric liquids and solids can be also made.

Features

  • · Cable cost can be reduced by the 2-wire system.
  • · TDR (Time Domain Reflectrometry) system is available for various applications.
  • · Measurement in high accuracy is realized by 2-wire loop powered system.
  • · Improved sensibility due to sharper pulses generated.
  • · Available for temperature and pressure in wide range. Measurement in high accuracy can be made regardless of the change in temperature, pressure and density.
  • · Possible to install the level meter in narrow space because the micro-pulse is propagated along the probe.
  • · Easy operation with wide graphic display.
