MT5200 bulk solids level transmitter from K-Tek is the newest transmitter in the company's MT5000 Series of guided wave radar transmitters. Its integrated graphic display is said to provide easy viewing of waveform screens and user-friendly menu supports a wide range of languages for quick setup almost anywhere.

Houston, TX and Prairieville, LA —MT5200 bulk solids level transmitter from K-Tek, the newest transmitter in the company's MT5000 Series of guided wave radar transmitters, will be on display in the exhibit hall at ISA Expo 2006. Device features an integrated graphic display that provides easy viewing of waveform screens and a user-friendly menu that supports a wide range of languages for quick setup in virtually any region of the world.

A concentric waveguide directs the radar beam, alleviating divergence problems and echoes in tanks with narrow openings. Unaffected by dust or feed flow, the MT5200 accurately measures materials with dielectric constants as low as 1.3. The two-wire, loop powered design with multiple output options, including 4-20 mA, HART, FOUNDATION Fieldbus, and Modbus, reduces wiring costs and provides a strong signal over distances. With no moving parts, the transmitter needs virtually no maintenance. It takes accurate level measurements in a wide range of application environments, including high dust and high operating temperatures and pressures up to 400°F (204°C) or 1500 psi (103 bar).

The standard housing is powder-coated aluminum with optional stainless steel for corrosive environments. A dual-compartment design isolates wiring and terminations from sensors and internal electronics. The all-digital, compact, and modular unit features built-in linearization functions. An integrated graphic display details measurements on an easy-to-read waveform screen with a choice of languages. Prices start at $1600.
