June 28, 2022 | By Monica Ferguson
Endress+Hauser has developed Micropilot FWR30, a wireless 80GHz IIoT sensor. Its recorded measurement data can be accessed remotely via the sensor’s cloud connection.
FWR30 enables real-time monitoring of often remotely stored inventories of substances like liquid additives in plastic or metal tanks, cleaning agents in food and beverage production, or for solids like building materials at construction sites. Its setup covers level measurement in plastic and open tanks. An optional process connection enables measurement of media in metal tanks like animal feed in agriculture or storage of wood pellets for heating systems.
FWR30 can be installed without special tools in under three minutes. The unit’s integrated battery means no external power supply is needed. The free space radar sensor covers measuring ranges up to 15 metres and temperatures between -20°C and 60°C.
