The Difference Between Ultrasonic and Radar Level Sensors

Both radar and ultrasonic sensors transmit wavesThere is a tendency, at least in the industrial media, to put Ultrasonic and Radar level measurement technology in the same hat. Even though many people use the terms interchangeably, the two technologies are quite different.

So, at the risk of sounding a bit nit-picky, we feel that defining the differences between ultrasonic and radar sensors is important, as it affects how sensors are selected and applied. In this blog, we will look at ultrasonic vs. radar sensors and explain the difference between the two level transmitter types.
