The FMR10 measures liquid levels at ranges up to 16 ft with 0.2-in. accuracy, while the FMR20 measures levels up to 66 feet with 0.08-in. accuracy. The FMR10 has a 4 to 20mA output and comes with Bluetooth for configuration. The Bluetooth wireless connection allows operators to monitor the sensor’s output and perform configurations in hazardous or unsafe locations without exposing personnel to dangerous conditions.

The FMR20 features a 4 to 20mA HART smart output which will allow for configuration from an optional remote display as well as Bluetooth configuration. Both sensors are available with a flooding tube that allows a maximum output signal to be generated. The level sensors are designed to work in process temperatures of -40 to 176 F (-40 to 80 C) and process pressures of -14 to 43 psi (-1 to 3 bar). Micropilot FMR10 and FMR20 provide the best price-performance ratio. For the first time, radar technology is available in the price range of typical water and wastewater level devices.
