Endress and Hauser has launched the Micropilot FMR5x range of radar level devices for applications in the chemical, oil and gas, life science, primaries, food, water and energy industries. The reliability of signal analysis has been improved and a data management system makes for quick and easy information sharing and replacement.

The Micropilot FMR5x range includes the FMR50 (liquids) and the FMR56 (solids) for use in basic applications and the FMR51 (liquids) and the FMR57 (solids) for use in high-pressure, high-temperature processes.

Each device features a multi-echo tracking system that enables it to overcome the problem of obstacles in the radar beam — for example installed instruments or heating coils — that can interfere with the signal and give false readings.

The Historom data management function enables fast and easy commissioning, maintenance and diagnostics. As well as continuously backing up all relevant data, Historom allows the user to replace the main electronics by hand.

The Micropilot hardware and software were developed according to IEC 61508 and can be used in homogeneous redundancy up to SIL3.

Key benefits

  • Multi-echo tracking system means obstacles are marked and tracked along with level, guaranteeing accurate measurements to within 2mm
  • Historom data management function offers intuitive and user-friendly menu guidance, reducing the cost of training, maintenance and operation
  • Micropilot always checks it is working properly and safely by continuously self-monitoring
  • Two instruments are used at the same measuring point; if one of the two detects an unsafe condition, the instrument changes to an alarm condition, reducing the risk of an unsafe process condition going unnoticed
  • Recurring check or proof test can be easily started either by attaching an engineering tool or directly from the control room, ensuring the instrument maintains its reliability
