The devices of the MOLOSwave series for continuous level measurement are working with the Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) measurement principle. They are specifically designed for the use in bulk goods. During the measurement high frequency microwave pulses with low energy are coupled onto the probe and guided along this probe to the bulk goods. The product surface partly reflects these pulses. The electronic detects the reflected pulses and calculates the actual filling level from the time difference of the transmitted and received signals. These filling levels are made available as a 4-20 mA signal for further signal processing. This signal can be visualized with easy to use and well legible indicating units that are mounted in a switch cabinet.

Technical data


The MWF is a guided radar measuring instrument for continuous level measurement in all kind of bulk solids with a DC-value (dielectric constant) above 1.8. This sensor reliably and accurately measures the actual filling level in silos and bins at any time with a measuring range up to 20 m. Therefore this level measurement device is used in many different industries:
