Accurately Measure Your Inventory

Radar on Tank IllustrationFMR60 RTG, with an accuracy level of ±1mm (0.04″), is a 2-wire technology that reduces tank wiring costs and allows easy implementation into existing systems. With its non-contact measurement, the tank’s top is almost independent from product properties.

 

Touch Screen Operations

Easy onsite operation using built-in touch control display without having to open the enclosure. It also has a user friendly operating menu.

 

Bluetooth® Enabled

The FMR62 has Bluetooth® wireless technology for for commissioning, operation, and maintenance via free iOS/Android app SmartBlue, with optional BT10 Bluetooth module.

 

Worldwide Approvals

Each radar gauge is approved for use in explosion hazardous areas to ATEX, FM, CSA, TIIS, NEPSi, INMETRO, JPN and IECEx standards. They are also SIL 2 and SIL 3 rated for overfill prevention.
