KROHNE Introduces Additions to OPTIWAVE Radar Level Transmitter Range

Ideally suited for applications in mining, chemical, petrochemical, minerals, and metals processing

Beverly MA: KROHNE, Inc. announces the addition of three 24 GHz and three 80 GHz OPTIWAVE Radar Level transmitters to its product line, which complement the existing 10 GHz devices. The entire range of OPTIWAVE 2-wire loop-powered FMCW radar level transmitters for liquids and solids is ideally suited to industries from chemical and petrochemical to mining, minerals and metals processing and cover liquid and solid applications.


With the OPTIWAVE 5200 (10 GHz) and now the OPTIWAVE series of 24 and 80 GHz radars, KROHNE offers the appropriate frequency for each application. The new OPTIWAVE 5400 / 6400 / 7400 (24 GHz) and OPTIWAVE 3500 / 6500 / 7500 (80 GHz) radars are each designed for specific industry needs, delivering reliable and accurate level measurement of liquids and solids, even in most difficult applications.

KROHNE offers an extensive choice of process connections starting from ¾", as well as Lens, Drop and Horn antennas to suit all process and installation conditions. The OPTIWAVE transmitters offer a measuring range from the antenna edge up to 100 m (328 ft), with accuracy from ±2 mm (±0.08"). The OPTIWAVE transmitters can measure products with dielectric constants as low as 1.4, and feature a quick setup assistant for easy commissioning as well as an empty tank spectrum function for eliminating false reflections.

The ERT150 - Dorner’s Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The ERT150 - Dorner's Next Evolution of Edge Roller Technology Conveyors

The next evolution in Dorner's Edge Roller Technology conveyor platform, the ERT®150, is ideal for small and light-load assembly automation, as well as medical and medical-device assembly application. The ERT platform is the only pallet conveyor of its kind available with an ISO Standard Class 4 rating for cleanroom applications. Earning the ISO Standard 14644-1 Class 4 rating means Dorner's ERT150 will conform and not contribute to the contamination of cleanrooms to those standards. As implied by its name, the ERT150 (Edge Roller Technology) uses rollers to move pallets through the conveyor smoothly with no friction (a byproduct often seen in belt-driven platforms). The conveyor's open design eliminates concerns of small parts or screws dropping into rollers and causing conveyor damage or jamming. The ERT150 is suited to operate in cleanroom environments requiring a pallet handling conveyor. It is capable of zoning for no or low-back pressure accumulation and is ideal for automation assembly applications within industries including medical devices, electronics, consumer goods among others.
