Gladiator Doppler Microwave Flow Switch

Brand: Hawk Measurement Systems

The HAWK Gladiator Doppler Microwave flow switch is used in process applications requiring highly reliable non-contact, nonintrusive product flow detection and movement.

The system operates by sending out bursts of microwave energy toward the targetproduct being monitored. The target product will reflect some of the microwave energy back to the system where it is processedto determine if the product is flowing or moving.
