Tracer 1000™ LTT1 (up to 65ft), Flocorp-Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter

Tracer 1000™ LTT1 Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter (up to 65ft)
Tracer 1000™ LTT1 Guided Wave Radar Level Transmitter (up to 65ft)

Featuring TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) technology, the Tracer 1000™ provides continuous level measurement and point level detection in liquids and solids, with analog and switching output. This innovative device has almost no installation restrictions – it can be mounted in small tanks, tall and narrow nozzles and it measures precisely even with difficult tank geometries or close to interfering structures. Factory settings may be configured via the HART® Communication protocol. Tracer 1000 is ideal for various types of processing and storage applications and has an exceptional performance in liquids with low reflectivity such as oils and hydrocarbons.

Features and benefits

  • Revolutionary TDR Technology
  • Precise continuous level measurement and reliable point level detection combined in one device
  • Highly robust measurement due to 4-wire design and innovative signal analysis and disturbance signal suppression
  • Fully modular probe design – Simple to install
  • Features HART® Communication protocol
  • No Dead Band (for coaxial probe option)
  • Economically priced

Output Functions

The Tracer 1000 is an active, single ended, non-isolated, 3 or 4 wire analog output transmitter.
 

 

Analog Output

(Active)

Current output 4-20mA: The span between the lower range value [4mA] and the upper range value [20mA]

is equal to 0-100% of the continuous level measurement reading as a factory default. Output can be inverted.

 

 

Switching Point [S]

Freely positionable within the measuring range [M] Hysteresis can be set by defining seperate upper and lower thresholds; if those are set at the same position, the minimum hysteresis of .11” applies

Total Load Resistance

< 500Ω: HART resistor approx. 250Ω

+ load resistance approx. 250Ω if the current output is connected to a device with an inner resistance of approx. 250Ω, then there is no additional external HART resistor necessary. In that case, the HART modem is connected in parallel to the current output wires.
