Guided/free-space radar is a very effective method of measuring level, provided the instruments have been correctly configured. To ensure that this is the case, Endress+Hauser has introduced a commissioning wizard for their Levelflex FMP5x and Micropilot FMR5x devices.
The commissioning is interactive, treats each commissioning stage separately and takes the user step-by-step through the whole procedure. Questions are asked, to which the user must reply. Graphics adapt to the answers given. Tips explain the significance of parameters and the consequences of values entered. When all stages are complete, a large green tick indicates success.
After commissioning is complete, the user can access additional settings. These include setting the device’s safety behavior in the event of lost echoes, checking the signal curve and the output, saving the reference curve and documenting the device settings.
Ninety percent of all applications are covered, which means typical level measurement in liquids and solids as well as interface measurement with the Levelflex FMP5x. The wizard is implemented in the standard device DTMs and can be run in DeviceCare (supplied with every device), FieldCare or any other FDT frame.
