With the introduction of the Micropilot FMR60, FMR62 and FMR67, Endress+Hauser has completed its portfolio of radar instruments. The new versions, which have been developed as per the IEC 61508 safety-by-design concept, are the first instruments on the market with 80 GHz technology.

Furthermore, like many Endress+Hauser flowmeters, they are the first level instruments to support Heartbeat Technology. Heartbeat allows that the measuring point can be verified and documented in situ without interrupting plant operation. Additionally it supports permanent process and device diagnostics and supplies information for predictive maintenance.

The Micropilot FMR6x series offers a wide range of Ex-approvals and is available with a HART 7 communication interface. Improved radar signal focusing and dynamic algorithms provide reliable, stable measurements at measuring ranges up to 125 m (410 ft) with accuracies as high as  ±1 mm (±0.04 inches). Measurements are unaffected by baffles or obstacles on the tank walls and due to innovative antenna design, build-up and condensate also have no effect. Interactive commissioning software makes setup and configuration fast and easy. With its 113 GHz radar portfolio (1 GHz + 6 GHz + 26 GHz + 80 GHz models) Endress+Hauser can provide the best fit frequency for every application.
