All the radar sensors being used today for level measurement in the industrial field only measure 1 point; thus it is hard to measure the level accurately in silos
with a bridge problem. However, because the IBM 3D radar sensor measures the level by acquiring a maximum of 24 polygon data, the presence of bridges or uneven surfaces does not
adversely influence its level measurements.
The IBM 3D radar sensor is not affected by dust, flame, fog, steam, etc. This makes it an ideal choice for use in solid silos with heavy dust.
Its performance is further enhanced by its self-cleaning feature, which periodically shakes off contaminants stuck on the sensor’s antenna.
