Evo 2600 Radar Gauge
L and J Engineering has released the Evo 2600 radar gauge, which, designed to be an innovative, easy to handle and reliable radar level gauge, can be used in a wide variety of applications.
Supporting a variety of digital protocols and analogue outputs, the Evo 2600 can be used in a number of applications, including powder and bulk solids, petroleum, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceutical, paraffin, molten sulphur, phosgene, latex, polyethylene, limestone rock, liquefied gases and so on.
The radar level gauge uses Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave (FMCW) technology operating in the 26GHz frequency band to ensure that it delivers high quality precision with +/-3mm standard accuracy.
One of the Evo 2600’s new features is the new E.wave graphical LCD display.
This display provides a vast array of detailed information for the user, including level, temperature, discrete status and a magnitude of diagnostics.
In the case of special applications or circumstances, it provides a graphical profile of the user’s tank to ensure there are no unforeseen obstructions or intrusions in any level gauging applications.
The E.wave allows users to fine tune the radar unit to cancel out disturbances in the tank.
All programmed and processed information can also be displayed on the radar’s E.wave display.
The Evo 2600 uses L and J’s E.cal setup wizard to assure setup of the radar gauge in minutes, without violating explosion-proof environments.
As with all the L and J’s level-gauging products, the Evo 2600 is configured via infrared technology by using the MCG 2150 handheld infrared calibrator.
There is also an optional ground-level display unit that allows users to program and setup the radar gauge at ground level without having to climb the tank.
By configuring the radar with the handheld infrared calibrator, there is no need to violate the explosion-proof environment by removing the cover.
L and J Engineering also provides antenna configurations for different applications, with antenna options for the Evo 2600 including conical horn antenna and parabolic antenna.
L and J Engineering has launched the MCG 2420 transmitter, which runs on ultra-low power and does not require batteries or eproms.
L+J Engineering has unveiled its MCG 3630 touch-panel tank monitor, which features a number of improvements over its predecessor, the MCG 3600, including an enhanced interface.
The Solicap M FTC series of level limit switches from Endress+Hauser is used for limit detection in silos containing bulk solids (for minimum or maximum level indication).
The TempC (temperature compensatory) membrane from Endress+Hauser is said to offer improved accuracy and process safety in challenging pressure and DP applications. It uses new technology to dramatically reduce the influence of process and ambient temperature fluctuations.
Union Papertech has replaced several of its old pressure transmitters, which it used to monitor level, with Deltapilot M FMB50 hydrostatic level transmitters.
