Overview

The OPTIWAVE 3500 is a 2-wire 80 GHz radar (FMCW) level transmitter for liquids in hygienic applications. It is designed for continuous, non-contact level measurement in the food and beverage as well as pharmaceutical industry. The device features a flush-mounted PEEK Lens antenna with a small beam angle and dead zone for precise measurement even in small and narrow tanks with agitators. It is equally suited for use on larger tanks, measuring distances of up to 50 m / 164 ft.

  • Flush-mounted PEEK Lens antenna (no tank intrusion)
  • Small dead zone and beam angle (8° with DN40 / 1½″)
  • ± 2 mm / ±0.08” accuracy
  • Empty tank spectrum function eliminates false reflections caused by tank internals
  • Suitable for SIP (Sterilisation In Place) and CIP (Cleaning In Place)
  • Large choice of hygienic process connections
  • Large, backlit LCD screen with 4-button keypad for operation with bar magnet; no need to open the housing cover
