    Radar technology is gaining recognition and usage as it matures thanks to better resolution and signal processing, greater accuracy and simpler setup. Guided wave radar is currently growing faster than any other level technologies. But while radar transmitters have been on the market for a while, many end-users are still confused what options for radar measurement technology are available and how to pick the transmitter offering for their application.

    This webinar will discuss radar technologies in comparison to other level measurement technologies, and then take a closer look at non-contact and guided wave radar and their fit for different applications. During this presentation you will learn the following: 

    • How radar technology is applied to measure level
    • Advantages and disadvantages of radar vs other level technologies
    • The ins and outs of non-contact and guided wave radar technologies
    • How to properly select the right guided wave radar technology for your application
