Radar (Non Contact) Level Transmitter working and Parameters

Working Principle

A radar signal is emitted via a horn antenna, reflected on the measuring surface and received with a time delay (Doppler’s effect).The frequency difference is transformed via an electronic circuit into the difference of the frequency spectrum and then the distance is calculated.
