Hawk Measurement Systems, a measurement solutions provider, released a radar level transmitter product line called Senator.

The Senator radar level transmitter is a non-contact sensor that uses frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) technology. FMCW tech features a continuous signal transmission, providing immediate measurement updates with zero delay, according to Hawk.

The Senator can be installed inside or outside of tanks and can penetrate a variety of non-metallic materials, such as various polymers and composites. The Senator has the ability to precisely measure distance, level and volume of liquids, solids, corrosives, powders, granulates, rocks, pastes and hygienic liquids.

“We are continuing our efforts to provide the highest level of support for our customers and the most innovative technologies,” says Jack Evans, president of Hawk Measurement. “The launch of Senator radar allows Hawk to provide complete level solutions and prove our capabilities in new markets.”

The Senator is available in 24 GHz and 80 GHz frequencies. The 24 GHz is used in a range of applications with good beam directivity and operates with agitation and condensation drop. The 80 GHz is the best focusing frequency, the company says, and is available with a small size antenna, no dead zone and long-range measurement without interference from the environment.
