APG Introduces Three New True Echo™ Pulse Radar Level Transmitters

APG's new True Echo™ Pulse Radar Transmitters with probe and horn antenna

LOGAN, UT – Automation Products Group, Inc. (APG) introduces three new True Echo™ Pulse Radar Level Transmitters: the Series PRL for Liquids, the Series PRS Dual Frequency for Solids, and the Series PRX Explosion Proof.

True Echo™ Pulse Radar Transmitters bring the unassailable accuracy of radar level readings to several difficult settings: liquids, solids, and Class I, Division 1 hazardous locations.

All True Echo™ Pulse Radar Level Transmitters come with either a 50’ (15m) or 100’ (30m) range, an accuracy of ±0.25% of maximum range, and an output resolution of 6.1 μA. Each unit can accurately read target materials with dielectric constants greater than 2, and comes with a push-button-activated Low Dielectric Material mode for targets with dielectric constants less than 4. True Echo™ Pulse Radar Transmitters are easy to install and automatically adjust signal power for optimal accuracy and clarity, which means high-accuracy readings with minimal fuss or hassle.
