Krohne's Optiwave 5200 C/F is a 10 GHz FMCW radar level meter designed to measure level and volume in storage or process tanks with process conditions up to 250 C and pressures up to 580 psi for general purpose or hazardous locations. Courtesy: KrohneKrohne’s Optiwave 5200 C/F is a 10 GHz FMCW radar level meter for liquid applications and has a 30 m measuring range. The 2-wire loop powered device is designed to measure level and volume in storage or process tanks with process conditions up to 250 C and pressures up to 580 psi for general purpose or hazardous locations. The Optiwave 5200 C/F has been designed and developed for use in SIL 2 safety-related systems.

The Optiwave 5200 C/F electronics are compatible with a wide selection of antennas. The PP and PTFE Wave Horn antennas are process sealed by their antenna material instead of a process seal construction with "O" ring gaskets. These gasket free antennas are ideally suited for corrosive environments. The PP antenna can be mounted on process connections as small as 1.5-in. The metallic horn and waveguide antennas use a dual seal mechanism, which is a combination of "O" ring gaskets with Krohne’s Metaglas process interface design, for a completely hermetic seal in highly toxic or explosive applications.

The modular housing design along with its bayonet locking system and antenna extensions ensures suitability for a variety of mounting positions and applications. To make the display screen easy to read, the quick coupling system permits 360-deg housing rotation. The housing can also be removed under process conditions. The remote converter version Optiwave 5,200 F features full display and configuration capability up to 100 m from the antenna.
