FMCW Radar Level Measurement: 24 GHz and 80 GHz technology in comparison

The video compares a 24GHz and an 80GHz FMCW radar level transmitter. Advantages and similarities of these two devices will be shown and conclusions presented.

Topics are:

  • System dynamics using the example of low reflective media
  • Radiation pattern of the antenna
  • Advantages of flush mounted lens antennas
  • Measurement through walls and foils
  • Measurement through grids and sieves
  • Signal bandwidth
  • Application examples and cleaning with Sprayballs
