Distance Measurement RaDist P60

Product Overview

RaDist P60 Sensor

MSO RaDist P60 distance sensor is based on Pulse Radar. The Radar is focussed by means of a dielectric lens.

RaDist P60 is available in different variants with set-ups for different distance ranges. It features an analogue 4 to 20 mA and serial RS-232 output. The maximum sample rate depending on distance range is 100 Hz. The sensor is fully encapsulated in a stainless steel M30 tube with a plastic dielectric lens antenna with a short cable tail with DIN M12 connector.

 

Application Area

RaDist P60 applications

  • Industrial distance measurement for short range from 20 cm up to 200 cm
  • Industrial liquid level measure­ment in containers e.g. IBC
  • Industrial bulk material level measure­ment
  • Distance measure­ment on rough surfaces e.g. the soil surface
  • Distance measure­ment under challenging conditions e.g. dust, fog, wind, temperature gradients e.g. on hot surface
