9.1 Glossary
D
Dielectric constant
An electrical property of the product to be measured used in Radar
measurement. Also known as εr, DK and relative permittivity. Defines the
strength of the measurement pulse reflected back to the device's signal
converter.
Distance
The distance from the face of flange to the level (1 product) or the surface
of the top product (2 or more products). See the diagrams at the end of this
section.
Drop antenna
A new generation of plastic antenna. It has an ellipsoidal shape for a more
precise emission of radar signals.
DTM
Device Type Manager. A driver for use in the PACTware™ program. All
data and functions of the device are included in it.
E
Electromagnetic compatibility Defines how much a device influences or is influenced by other devices that
generate electromagnetic fields during operation. Refer to European
standard EN 61326-1 A1+A2 for further details.
F
FMCW
Frequency-modulated continuous-wave radar technology. The signal is
continuously present, but the frequency is modulated, usually in
successive linear ramps over time (frequency sweeps).
H
Horn (cone) antenna
A common antenna for most applications. It is used for the controlled
emission and collection of radar signals.
Hazardous area
An area with a potentially explosive atmosphere. Trained personnel can
install and use an device in this area. The device must be ordered with the
appropriate options. The device requires approvals (ATEX, IEC Ex, FM, CSA,
NEPSI etc.) related to site specifications. You can find more data about
hazardous areas in the Ex Manuals and Ex Certificates of Compliance.
I
Interference signals
False radar reflections.
L
Level
34-VF-25-18 iss.1 GLO Nov 08 US
Height from the bottom of the tank (user-defined) to the surface of the top
product (Tank height – distance). See the diagrams at the end of this
section.

M
Mass
Total mass of tank contents.
O
Operators
Users who can choose how to display measurements. They cannot
configure the device in supervisor mode.
P
PACTware™
PACTware
Software that operates and configures field devices from a remote
workstation. It is not necessary to use fieldbus software or programs
developed by the manufacturer.
R
Radar reflection
Signal reflected from the surface of the tank contents.
S
Signal converter
A set of electronic components in the device that send the reflected
measurement pulse through some signal filters. They identify and
measure the level of the tank contents.
Supervisor
Users who can configure the device in supervisor mode. They cannot
configure the device in service mode.
T
TBF
Tank Bottom Following (TBF) mode is an alternative measurement mode. It
allows the device to measure tank contents with low dielectric constants.
TBF mode uses the reflection of the tank bottom to indirectly measure the
level of the tank contents.
U
Ullage volume
Unfilled volume. See the diagrams at the end of this section.
V
Volume
Total volume of tank contents.
W
Waveguide
118
A PTFE component that is used to guide the emitted radar waves correctly
into the horn antenna.
