Eclipse Model 706 Transmitter Advances Guided Wave Radar Technology
Magnetrol's New GWR Solution Offers Improved Level Control Performance
Downers Grove, Ill. -- Magnetrol International, Incorporated has launched the ECLIPSE Model 706 guided wave radar (GWR) transmitter, a best-in-class level control solution that advances guided wave radar technology with improved performance for a wide range of level and interface control applications.
The ECLIPSE Model 706 is designed to provide outstanding accuracy, reliability and safety for virtually all process industries. Latest-generation features include:
Enhanced Signal Performance – The ECLIPSE Model 706 innovative GWR circuitry achieves both a higher transmit pulse amplitude and improved receiver sensitivity, resulting in a signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) that is nearly three times higher than competitive GWR devices. This assures precise, dependable control for every level application, including extremely low dielectric media, extended measuring ranges, and punishing conditions where foaming, boiling or flashing can occur.
Overfill Capable Probes – Magnetrol offers the only guided wave radar transmitter on the market with a complete line of overfill capable probes. Unlike other GWR transmitters that use algorithms to infer level readings in top-of-the-probe dead zones, the ECLIPSE Model 706 measures true level to within specification all the way up to the process flange. Coaxial and single rod overfill capable probes can be installed in various configurations on the vessel, even when the risk of flooding exists.
Advanced Diagnostics – The ECLIPSE Model 706 takes the user interface experience to new levels of convenience and functionality. The LCD diagnostics convey critical real-time waveform and trend data with outstanding ease of use. Additionally, the ECLIPSE Model 706 can be preconfigured online prior to shipment, to ensure plug-and-play transmitter commissioning and automatic capture of echo curve during upsets.
The Eclipse Model 706 transmitter provides safe, efficient and cost-effective liquid level and interface control and is virtually unaffected by fluctuating process conditions including density, dielectric, viscosity and specific gravity.
The ECLIPSE Model 706 introduction represents the latest GWR innovation from Magnetrol, the company that introduced the original ECLIPSE Model 705 – the very first two-wire, loop-powered GWR transmitter for industrial liquid level applications.
