Emerson has introduced the Rosemount 1208 level and flow transmitter Series non-contacting radar transmitters to help increase the operational efficiency of water, wastewater and process industry utility applications. The 1208 series delivers level and open channel flow measurements, enabling organizations to increase the efficiency of their operations and achieve environmental compliance.

Operators in the water and wastewater, food and beverage, chemical and other process industries often deploy ultrasonic and hydrostatic devices for water monitoring applications when radar transmitters are considered too expensive, bulky or complex. 

The Rosemount 1208, featuring 80 GHz fast-sweep frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) technology on a single electronic chip, delivers accurate and reliable measurement within a compact device is ideal for applications with space constraints or compliance requirements.

Emerson claims the measurement accuracy of the Rosemount 1208 line is unaffected by most process conditions, including condensation and variations in pressure, temperature and density. 

By using fast-sweep FMCW technology and advanced algorithms, the new transmitter family can collect up to 40 times more information than legacy radar devices. This provides level measurement accuracy of ± 2 mm at a range of 15 m, helping organizations optimize processes and comply with environmental requirements.

“Improved monitoring within water, wastewater and process industry utility applications is essential to help optimize processes and create operational efficiency improvements,” said Felix Johansson, associate solutions manager for Emerson’s radar level business.

“Emerson’s advanced radar technology is simple to order, install, operate and maintain. Designed specifically for these applications, it provides a step-change increase in measurement performance and process visibility to help operators maximize the potential of their plant,” Johansson said.
