Accuracy Approved for Custody Transfer

6 Wire Communication Radar illustration

NMT84 RTG, with an accuracy level of ±0.5mm (0.02″), uses the drip-off planar antenna for stilling well applications. The drip-off planar antenna eliminates problems caused by condensation, and is designed for high accuracy liquid level measurement in storage and process applications.

 

 

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.

 

 

Worldwide Approvals

Each radar gauge is approved for use in explosion hazardous areas to FM, IEC Ex and ATEX standards. It is also SIL 2 and SIL 3 certified.
