Basic radar setup

Level Q&A

I bought a new level radar! But I don't know its basic configuration because someone lost the manual. Could you help me?

Expert’s answer: Basic radar setup

I can say that with most radar applications, the basic radar setup isn’t too terribly hard. Regardless, nowadays they come with a “setup wizard,” which makes them even easier!

Usually, the setup wizard will walk you through the setup. For example, it’ll often start by asking which product you want to measure. Then it’ll go on to ask for the dialectric of the product, then the type of tank, and so on.

The video below gives you an example of a setup wizard:
