Reliable and robust
The Ri-Series 2-wire sensors with FMCW radar technology provide accurate monitoring of liquids in standard and critical measurement applications, ensure absolute operational reliability and minimise costs through very low maintenance and service requirements. Highest reliability for level measurements under the most difficult environmental conditions due to very narrow beam angle and protection class IP68.

Unique and secure web-based user interface via Bluetooth
With a web-based user interface, the Ri sensor offers a simple and convenient way to change parameters, display echo curves and change the Bluetooth range. This web app is accessible via any browser on any operating system (Windows, Android or iOS). Compared to a conventional app, no software and associated updates need to be installed.

DTM via HART
A HART device DTM (Device Type Manager) is also available for the sensors, with which parameterisation is possible via the manufacturer-independent PACTware adjustment software.
PC Software via HART
Manual false echo blanking can be carried out via PC software if required. In addition, all important parameters for measurement range adjustment can be optimised and documented.
During installation, the LEDs show at which mounting position the sensor gets the best signal. This allows for a comfortable and easy installation of the sensor. In measurement mode, the LEDs also show whether the measurement is working properly.
Mounting is easy via the 1" BSP/NPT thread on the back. The sensors are also optionally available with a 1" front thread made of PVDF.
