SITRANS LR260 is a 2-wire 25 GHz pulse radar level transmitter for continuous monitoring of solids and liquids  in storage vessels including extreme levels of dust and high temperatures, to a range of 30m (98.4 ft).

SITRANS LR260 includes a graphical local user interface (LUI) that improves setup and operation using an intuitive Quick Start Wizard, and echo profile displays for diagnostic support. Startup is easy using the Quick Start wizard with a few parameters required for basic operation.

SITRANS LR260’s unique design allows safe and simple programming using the Intrinsically Safe handheld programmer without having to open the instrument’s lid.

SITRANS LR260 measures virtually any solids material to a range of 30 m (98.4 ft).


Key Applications: cement powder, plastic powder/pellets, grain, flour, coal, solids and liquids  bulk storage vessels, and other applications.

Supplementary Components are designed to work with most types of instrumentation to provide enhanced functionality such as remote displays and remote monitoring solutions. Please find more information here.  

Don’t forget that the safest engineered level measurement solution includes switches for back-up, overfill, low level and dry run protection. Click here for more information
