Operating Principle

PULSAR transmitter technology is based on pulse-burst radar technology together with equivalent time sampling circuitry. Short bursts of 5.8 or 6.3 GHz microwave energy are emitted and subsequently reflected from the liquid level surface.



  • Liquids and Slurries
  • Hydrocarbons to Water Based Media


  • Process and Storage Vessels up to rated temperature and pressure
  • Pits and Sumps
  • Non-Metallic Tanks


  • Performance not process dependent (changing specific gravity and dielectric have no effect)
  • 5.8/6.3 GHz operating frequency offers superior performance in the tougher applications of turbulence, foam, and heavy vapors
  • Antenna designs to +400° F (+204° C)
  • Range up to 65 feet (20 meters)
  • Quick connect/disconnect probe coupling allows vessel to remain sealed (patent pending)
  • Safety Integrity Level (SIL) value of 1


  • HART® digital communications
  • 316 stainless steel dual compartment enclosure
  • 4" and 6" horn antennas
  • Polypropylene and Teflon® rod antennas
  • Antenna nozzle extensions
  • PACTware™ PC software interface
