Product Options


The Siemens SITRANS LR460 radar level transmitter is a 4-wire, 24 GHz FMCW transmitter with advanced signal processing and extremely high signal-to-noise ratio for the continuous monitoring of solids up to 100 m (328 ft). It is ideal for measurement in extreme dust.

The SITRANS LR460 level transmitter includes an integral Easy Aimer which allows for easy positioning for optimum measurement on solids. Onboard Process Intelligence means advanced signal processing is harnessed for reliable operation on both simple and difficult solids applications.

The LR 460 radar transmitter features a robust enclosure, flange and horn components. The atmospheric or temperature conditions within the vessel have virtually no effect on the unit. Air purging and a dust cap are available as optional extras for extremely sticky applications.

The Intrinsically Safe handheld programmer enables safe on-site local programming. SIMATIC PDM can be used for easy remote programming using HART or PROFIBUS PA. The exceptional signal reflection is enhanced by the characteristics of 24 GHz and high signal-to-noise ratio, regardless of the dielectric value of the medium.

Key applications include long-range dusty applications, cement powder, fly-ash, coal, flour, grain and plastics.
