Working principle:

LTDR uses TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) technology. Low-energy, high-frequency electromagnetic impulses, generated by the sensor’s circuitry, are propagated along the probe which is immerged in the liquid to be measured. When these impulses hit the surface of the liquid, part of the impulse energy is reflected back up the probe to the circuitry which then calculates the fluid level from the time difference between the impulses sent and the impulses reflected. The sensor can output the analyzed level as a continuous measurement reading through its analog output, or it can convert the values into freely positionable switching output signals. LTDR Sensors are also known as Guided Radars or Guided Wave Radars.

Applications

  • Level measurement in tanks/storage silos
  • Water and waste water treatment
  • Food and beverage industry
  • Chemical, petrochemical and car industry

Models

  • LTDR single rod probe:
    • 6 mm, G¾ connection
    • 8 mm, G1 connection
  • LTDR rope probe:
    • 4 mm, G¾ connection
    • 6 mm, G1 connection

Suitable for a very wide range of applications with both liquids and solids (single rod 8 mm and rope probe are specifically indicated for the level measurement of solids). The signal has wider detection radius around the rod. Thus, it is more responsive for measuring signal disturbances which can be easily overcome by observing a few mounting considerations and making simple configuration adjustments to the sensor. These are also recommended for installation in metallic bypass chambers, which basically act together with the rod as a big coaxial probe.

  • LTDR coaxial probe:
    • G¾ connection

The high frequency measurement signal is completely contained within the outer tube, which provides immunity against any external conditions and interfering objects outside its tube. Ideal solution for a hassle-free “drop-in anywhere” installation, ensuring reliable measurement under almost any application condition. Ideal choice for measuring low reflectivity liquids (i.e. low dielectric constant) such as oils and hydrocarbons. Recommended for the use with clean liquids only. NOT recommended with viscous, crystallizing, adhesive, coating or sticky liquids, fibrous liquids, sludge, slurry, pulp or any liquids containing solid particles. Such liquids might cause build-up, bridging or clogging inside the coaxial probe.
