Introducing Gems' New RLI Series Non-Contact Radar Level Sensor
Available in a compact design constructed from chemically inert PVDF material, the RLI Series Non-Contact Radar Sensor features models that work in tanks up to 49.21’ (15 m) deep! Its simplified programming and setup via Bluetooth® connection make installation quick and easy. In addition, it can run diagnostics to view signal strength and tank obstructions.

Benefits of Gems’ RLI Series Non-Contact Radar Level Sensor:
- Non-contact design means no media ever encounters the Radar sensor. It eliminates the need to worry about material compatibility between the media and sensor components.
- The non-contact design is a no-moving parts solution, which eliminates the potential for any mechanical failures from a float-based sensor.
- The non-contact design also eliminates the need to use large floats with long stems, decreasing shipping costs and shipping transit time. It also makes installation time a fraction of the time, saving countless labor hours.
- Infinitely configurable to match any tank depth - RLI-70 monitors tanks up to 26.25’ (8 m) or RLI-80 monitors tanks up to 49.21’ (15 m), eliminating the need to source multiple level transmitters, reducing inventory and sourcing costs.
- Also, since it never comes in contact with the media, there are no issues with debris coating or causing a float to get stuck.
- Radar through the air technology is a very accurate sensing technology. It can detect liquid levels within 5 mm, with no effect on its accuracy based on changes in temperature or pressure.
- Like ultra-sonic-based sensors, radar technology is not affected by condensation or dust in the air.
