How It Works
Unlike true pulse devices that transmit a single, sharp (fast rise-time) waveform of wide-band energy, MAGNETROL Pulsar transmitters emit short bursts of energy to measure the transit time of the signal reflected from the liquid surface. Equivalent time sampling, or ETS, measures the high speed, low power electromagnetic energy (EM). ETS is critical in the application of radar to vessel level measurement. It captures the EM signals in real time (nanoseconds) and reconstructs them in equivalent time (milliseconds).
Pulse Burst Radar operates in the time domain and does not require complex and expensive processing. Because echoes are discrete and separated in time, Pulse Burst Radar is better able to sort through extraneous echoes and select the one generated by true level. Pulse Burst Radar also has excellent averaging characteristics, which is extremely important in applications where the return signal can be attenuated.
