Endress+Hauser releases FMR6x
80 GHz radar level instrument
FMR6x provides small beam angle, measuring to 410 feet and accuracy to ±1mm
Endress+Hauser introduces the 80 GHz Micropilot FMR6x free space radar level instrument for process applications, suitable for use in tanks or silos with complex geometries, obstacles, baffles and/or nozzles. Its small beam angle of only 3 degrees provides level measurement at distances up to 410 feet with accuracy to ±1mm. Outputs include 4-20mA with HART and an optional open collector switch output or (2ea.) 4-20mA outputs.
FMR6x 80 GHz device offers plenty of outstanding added values:
Reduced tank wall effects
Less interference from obstacles
Ability to measure lower dielectric media
Heartbeat Technology capabilities
Developed according to IEC 61508
The hardware design, e.g. the HistoROM concept are identical over the whole platform, unique to Endress+Hauser
Process connection down to ¾ inch
Designed to resist buildup and condensation
Built-in mapping and easy commissioning
Developed in accordance with IEC 61508 and with international XP approvals, the FMR6x is suitable for use in SIL 2 and SIL 3 hazardous locations. Additionally, the FMR6x utilizes Heartbeat Technology for on demand verification without process interruption, Heartbeat SIL proof test complete with a proof test report and Heartbeat Monitoring utilizing fast and easy wizards for foam or buildup detection.
If problems occur, the instrument provides standardized diagnostic messages developed according to NE 107 with clear instructions for action. Optionally, Heartbeat Technology can generate a verification protocol providing a report that may be required for compliance with regulations, laws and standards.
Easy and fast commissioning
The FMR6x has an integrated HistoROM® data memory and management modules to enable fast and easy commissioning, maintenance and diagnostics. Intuitive, menu-guided operating wizards at the instrument (via our free DeviceCare or FTD compliant software), or remotely at the control system reduce setup and field maintenance costs.
