• Multivariable two-wire, 24 VDC loop-powered
transmitter for level or volume
The PULSAR Radar transmitter is based on pulse burst
radar technology combined with equivalent time sampling circuitry. Short bursts of 6 GHz microwave energy
are emitted and subsequently reflected from the liquid
level surface. Distance is calculated by the equation
D = Transit time (round-trip)/2. Liquid level is then
calculated by applying the tank height value.
• Performance not process dependent (changing
specific gravity and dielectric have no effect)
• 6 GHz operating frequency offers superior performance in the tougher applications with turbulence,
foam, and heavy vapors
• Echo Rejection setup is simple, intuitive and effective
• Antenna designs to +200 °C (+400 °F),
-1.0 to 51.7 bar (-14.7 to 750 psig)
• Range up to 40 m (130 ft)
A P P L I C A T I O N S
• Quick connect/disconnect antenna coupling allows
vessel to remain sealed
MEDIA: Liquids and slurries; hydrocarbons to waterbased media (dielectric 1.7–100)
• Extremely low output at antenna: < .01 mW (avg),
< 2 mW (max); hundreds of times less than a cell
phone
VESSELS: Most metal and concrete process or storage
vessels up to rated temperature and pressure. Pits and
sumps as well as glass-lined tanks.
• 4-button keypad and graphic LCD display allow for
convenient viewing of configuration parameters and
echo curve
CONDITIONS: Virtually all level measurement and
control applications including process conditions
exhibiting varying specific gravity and dielectric,
visible vapors, high fill/empty rates, turbulence, low
to moderate foam and buildup.
• Proactive diagnostics advise not only what is wrong,
but also offer troubleshooting tips
• Available for use in SIL 2 Loops (92.7 % SFF, with
full FMEDA report available)
• PACTware™ PC Program and enhanced DTMs for
advanced configuration and troubleshooting
• Available with HART® or FOUNDATION fieldbus™ digital
output

Pulse
PULSAR R96 is a top-mounted, downward-looking pulse
burst radar operating at 6 GHz. Unlike true pulse devices
(e.g. ECLIPSE Guided Wave Radar) which transmit a single,
sharp (fast rise-time) waveform of wide-band energy
(Figure 1), PULSAR emits short bursts of 6 GHz energy
(Figure 2) and measures the transit time of the signal
reflected off the liquid surface.
Distance is calculated utilizing the equation Distance equals
the Speed of light multiplied by the transit time divided by
two (Distance = C × Transit Time/2), then developing the
level value by factoring in tank height and other configuration information (Figure 3). The exact reference point for
distance and level calculations is the sensor reference point
(bottom of an NPT thread, top of a BSP thread, or face of
a flange).
The exact level measurement is extracted from false target
reflections and other background noise via the use of
sophisticated signal processing. The new PULSAR Model R96
circuitry is extremely energy efficient so no duty cycling is
necessary to accomplish effective measurement.

Bottom Blocking Distance
• 4" (100 mm) Horn

Distance = Sensor Level Distane - Level Trim
Maximum measuring range (distance) is measured from the
sensor reference point (bottom of NPT thread, top of BSP
thread, or face of flange) to the bottom of the tank. Refer to
Figure 4.
Ideally, the 6" (150 mm) horn antenna should be used to ensure
the best possible performance in all operational conditions.
Since that is impractical, other antennas are available. The chart
below shows the maximum measuring range of each antenna
based on dielectric and turbulence. Refer to Figure 5.

Reference
Point
(NPT)
Noise and media buildup drastically decrease reliable measurement. Although it is theoretically possible to measure a liquid
level on the antenna, liquid should not be allowed closer than
50 mm (2") from the bottom of the antenna due to the
decrease in accuracy when liquid level is present on the
antenna. Refer to Figure 6.

Generally either a threaded or flanged connection is used.
L O C A T I O N
Ideally, the Radar transmitter should be mounted 1⁄2 radius
from center of the tank providing an unobstructed signal
path to the liquid surface where it should illuminate (with
microwave energy) the largest possible surface area. Do
not install in center of tank top or within 45 cm (18") of
tank wall. Tank walls may produce reflections that must
be minimized during field configuration (Antenna
Orientation). Refer to Figure 7.
B E A M
A N G L E
The various antenna designs exhibit different beam
patterns. Figure 9 shows the beam spread for all PULSAR
antennas. Ideally the beam pattern should illuminate the
maximum liquid surface with a minimum striking other
objects in the vessel including the tank wall. Use these
drawings to determine the optimum installation location.
Figure 7
O B S T R U C T I O N S
Almost any object that falls within the beam pattern will
cause reflections that may be misinterpreted as a false
liquid level. Although the PULSAR Model R96 has a powerful Echo Rejection routine, all possible precautions
should be taken to minimize false target reflections with
proper installation and orientation. Refer to Figures 8 & 9.

Improper installation in a nozzle creates “ringing” (undesired
signals) which will adversely affect measurement. The antenna
should always be mounted so the active section of the antenna
is a minimum of 12 mm (0.5") below the nozzle. Be sure to
include any nozzle dimension inside the vessel. Refer to Figure
10. Antenna extensions are offered to allow the PULSAR Model
R96 transmitter to work reliably in nozzles with “L” dimensions
of 25 mm (1"), 100 mm (4"), 200 mm (8") or 300 mm (12").

The PULSAR Model R96 can be mounted in a standpipe or
stillwell but certain items must be considered:
• Metal stillwells only: Sizes 3–8 inches (80–200 mm).
Index
Mark
• Diameter must be consistent throughout length; no
reducers.
• Use only horn antennas sized to pipe ID; 3–6"
(80–150 mm); 8" pipe can use a 6" horn.
• Stillwell length must cover complete range of measurement (i.e., liquid must be in stillwell).
• Welds should be smooth.
• Vents: holes < 12 mm (0.5") diameter, slots < 12 mm
(0.5") width.
• If an isolation valve is used, it must be a full port ball
valve with an I.D. equal to the pipe diameter.
• Bridles/Bypass Installations: The launcher (index mark)
should be rotated 90° from process connections.
Maximum Range
• Configuration must include a non-zero entry for PIPE I.D.
PIPE I.D.
• There will be some increased dielectric sensitivity;
system GAIN will be reduced when PIPE ID > 0.
• There will be a slight reduction in Maximum Range

The PULSAR Model R96 transmitter utilizes a
linearly polarized, microwave beam that can
be rotated to improve its performance. Proper
orientation can minimize unwanted target
reflections, decrease sidewall reflections (multipath) and maximize direct reflections from the
liquid surface. The index mark located on the
side of the launcher is oriented in the same
direction as the polarization. 45° is initially
recommended. Refer to Figure 12.

Some applications can be problematic for Non-Contact
Radar. The following are examples of when Guided
Wave Radar is recommended.
• Extremely low dielectric media (εr<1.7)
• Very weak reflections from the liquid surface
(particularly during turbulence) can cause poor
performance.
• Tanks heavily cluttered with false targets (mixers,
pumps, ladders, pipes, etc.)
• During times of very low liquid levels of low dielectric media, the metal tank bottom may be detected,
which can deteriorate performance.
8
• Foam can either absorb or reflect the microwave
energy depending upon the depth, dielectric, density
and wall thickness of the bubbles. Due to typical
variations in the amount (depth) of foam, it is
impossible to quantify performance. It may be
possible to receive most, some or none of the
transmitted energy.
• Extremely high liquid level (Overflow) conditions
when liquid very near the antenna can cause
erroneous readings and measurement failure.

bulletin BE57-106.
