Siemens SITRANS LR560 for Solid Bin Sensing

Solutions for the Agricultural Industry

Searching for a solid bin sensing solution that provides continuous monitoring? The Siemens SITRANS LR560 radar level transmitter continuously monitors solids in silos to a range of 100 m (328 ft). With processes continually changing, it’s vital to know the logistics surrounding your bins, location, levels and more. That’s where the Siemens Sitrans LR560 comes in.

As a Siemens VS2 partner, Process Measurement Company distributes the Sitrans LR560 and provides application assistance for bin monitoring. The Sitrans LR560 uses a 4 degree radar beam with enough power to blast through dust and particulate during a filling or emptying application for bulk solid bins in scenarios where ultrasonic does not work as well. For safe, accurate and rugged solid bin sensing, the Sitrans LR560 may be the right solution for your agricultural processes.

Siemens Sitrans LR560 Provides Safe, Reliable and Accurate Solid Bin Sensing

The Sitrans LR560’s plug and play performance is ideal for most solids, including those with extreme dust and high temperatures up to +200 ºC (+392 ºF). This product can be used for bins filled with aggregate, grain, coal, fly ash and more.

The Sitrans LR560 has a unique design that allows safe and simple programming using the Intrinsically Safe handheld programmer, which means the operator does not have to open the instrument’s lid. Included within this product is an optional graphical local display interface (LDI) that improves setup and operation using an intuitive Quick Start Wizard, and echo profile display for diagnostic support. Startup of this product is easy using the Quick Start wizard.
