Model R82 Pulse Burst Radar Transmitter

Source: Magnetrol International


The Magnetrol® Model R82 is an economical, loop-powered radar transmitter bringing radar to everyday applications. Daily applications that have been considered for ultrasonic can now utilize the superior performance of radar technology. The electronics are housed in a compact, single compartment cast aluminum or Lexan® housing.The R82 measures effectively even when atmospheres above the liquid are saturated with vapor. Pulse Burst technology and advanced signal processing manage common disturbances such as false echoes caused by obstructions, multi-path reflections from tank sidewalls or turbulence caused by agitators, aggressive chemicals, or aerators.
