Non Contact Level Transmitters are now more and more widely used in industrial level monitoring. We most often provide customers with non-contact radar level transmitters and ultrasonic level meters. Both liquids and solids can be measured with Non Contact Level Transmitters. There is no need to dig the level probe deep into the measured medium. The sensitive elements measured by Non Contact Level Transmitters are not in contact with the liquid being measured. It can be used in special occasions that contact measuring instruments cannot meet. Such as the medium with high viscosity, strong corrosiveness, strong pollution and easy crystallization.

Non Contact Level Transmitters Types
In order to choose the most suitable level sensor, we not only need to know the properties and state of the liquid being measured. It is also necessary to understand the advantages and disadvantages of different level sensors. in order to select the most suitable sensor. Next, let’s briefly introduce the common non-contact liquid level measurement methods and their characteristics.
Common non-contact measurement methods mainly include ray level meter, ultrasonic level meter, laser ranging sensor and radar level meter.
Radar Type Level Transmitter Working Principle
Very short microwave pulses with very low energy are transmitted and received through the antenna system. The radar wave runs at the speed of light. The operating time can be converted into level signals by electronic components. A special time extension method can ensure stable and accurate measurement in a very short time.
Electromagnetic waves propagate in the air at the speed of light. The distance between the radar level gauge and the surface of the material can be expressed by the following formula:
D = (1/2)*CT
In the formula:
D ———the distance between the radar level gauge and the surface of the material;
C ———Speed of light
T ———Pulse time.
Then the liquid level is: L = E-D
In the formula:
L — liquid level;
E ———The total height of the tank;
D ———Air height.
Even in the presence of false reflections, the new micro-processing technology and the unique ECHOFOX- software can accurately analyze the level echo. By inputting the size of the container, the distance value can be converted into a signal proportional to the level. The instrument can be debugged with empty positions.

Ultrasonic Level Transmitter Working Principle
The working principle of the ultrasonic level sensor is:
Ultrasonic transducer (probe) emits high-frequency pulse sound waves, and the surface of the measured level (material) is reflected back. The reflected echo is received by the transducer and converted into an electrical signal. The propagation time of the sound wave is proportional to the distance from the sound wave to the surface of the object.
The relationship between the sound wave transmission distance S and the sound speed C and the sound transmission time T can be expressed by the formula: S=C×T/2.
The probe part emits ultrasonic waves, which are then reflected by the liquid surface. The probe part is received again. The distance from the probe to the liquid (object) surface is proportional to the elapsed time of the ultrasonic wave:
hb = CT2
Distance [m] = time × speed of sound/2 [m]
The temperature compensation formula of sound velocity:
Ambient sound velocity = 331.5 + 0.6 × temperature
