Overview

The OPTIWAVE 6400 is a 2-wire 24 GHz radar (FMCW) level transmitter for basic applications with solids. This radar is designed for continuous, non-contact level measurement of stones, plastic granulates, coffee beans and other products in solids processing of various industries. The level transmitter features a Metallic Horn antenna as well as PP and PTFE Drop antennas. The Drop antenna design minimises scaling and is unaffected by the angle of repose. Hence no need for expensive antenna aiming kits or purging systems.

  • 2-wire, loop-powered, with HART®7
  • Built-in configurations for different surface profiles
  • PP or PTFE Drop antennas:
    • Insensitive to product build-up
    • Small beam angle (4° with DN150 /6″ PTFE Drop antenna)
    • Ellipsoidal shape and smooth surface to prevent scaling
    • Unaffected by angle of repose – no need for antenna aiming kits
    • New DN100 / 4" for distances up to 40 m / 131.2 ft
  • 316L Metallic Horn antenna with optional purging system
  • ±2 mm / ±0.08″ accuracy
  • Spare converter compatible with all OPTIWAVE 6300 C process connections
  • Low-cost 316L low-pressure flange discs
  • Antenna extensions to suit any nozzle length
  • Large choice of flange and thread connections
  • Large, backlit LCD screen with 4-button keypad for operation with bar magnet; no need to open the housing cover
  • PACTware™, HART® DD and DTM provided free of charge with full functionality
  • SIL 2/3 certified for safety-related applications
  • 3-year warranty
