SITRANS LR250 Radar Level transmitters

Description

SITRANS LR250 is your first choice for liquid level measurement in storage and process vessels up to 20 meters (66 ft). With its range of antennas, this transmitter can handle whatever you need. Its new flanged encapsulated antenna means corrosive or aggressive materials are no challenge for this transmitter

SITRANS LR250 includes a graphical local user interface (LUI) that improves setup and operation by including an intuitive Quick Start Wizard, and echo profile displays for diagnostic support. Startup is easy using the Quick Start wizard with a few parameters required for basic operation.

Key Applications: liquid bulk storage tanks, process vessels with agitators, vaporous liquids, high temperatures, low dielectric media and applications with functional safety requiements.
