New OPTIFLEX 1100 TDR guided radar level meter

KROHNE introduces the new OPTIFLEX 1100 C level meter for liquids and solids in non-explosive environments. The OPTIFLEX 1100 C offers a cost-effective and higher performing replacement for traditional level meters such as RF capacitance, conductive and pressure level meters.

The OPTIFLEX 1100 C is 2-wire, loop-powered and available with a standard 20 m cable or segmented coaxial probe for liquids and a 10 m cable probe for solids. All probes can be shortened on site and commissioning is completed via an intuitive 5-step ”Quick Setup” procedure. The OPTIFLEX 1100 C is available with an integrated display and keypad in the cover so that it is not necessary to open the housing cover for configuration. A blind version is also available. Multiple blind versions can be configured on site, using a single HMI (Human-Machine Interface) service tool.

The OPTIFLEX 1100 C uses TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) technology. This state-of-the-art technology measures level independent from physical property variations such as dielectric constants, pressure or density. Unlike traditional meters, OPTIFLEX 1100 C does not need any wet calibration, is immune to linearity problems in irregular tank shapes and has neither fragile nor moving parts.

The OPTIFLEX 1100 C is the latest addition to the popular OPTIFLEX product family next to the existing high-precision OPTIFLEX 1300 C TDR level meter, which is used in hazardous environments such as the chemical, oil & gas, and mining industries.
