Hawk Measurement Systems (HAWK), a provider of measurement solutions, has been awarded explosion proof, flameproof and dust ignition proof certification by FM Approvals for FM, FM Canada and ATEX standards. Adding to the existing IECEx rating, Hawk now covers all major market areas.

FM approval for Hawk’s Centurion Guided Radar

Along with the recent additions of SIL2, high temperature and high pressure designs the Centurion Guided Radar is a versatile and reliable continuous level measurement instrument that Hawk believes will be a pillar of its continuing growth and disruption to the world wide level measurement market.

Principle of operation

Guided-wave technology sends the radar pulse down a probe to measure either liquids, solids or a low dielectric to high dielectric Interface level. The pulse hits the surface and / or Interface and is reflected back up the probe to the sensor, where the transit time is translated into a distance using time of fight and time expansion. The amplitude of the reflection depends on the dielectric constant of the product.
