This product is susceptible to electrostatic shock. Follow proper grounding
procedures.
Do not use a Ground Fault Interrupt (G.F.I.) with the IQ 300. The ground path is
used for filtering purposes in conjunction with the universal power supply.
Mounting Location
•
Do not mount in direct sunlight without the use of a sun shield. Refer to Appendix III
(Ambient/Operating Temperature Specification) on page 89
Warning: For vessels with conical or parabolic tops, avoid mounting the unit at

Beam Spreading
Due to the polarization effect of the
microwave signal related to the
wall of the vessel, we recommend
locating the IQ 300 a minimum of
30cm (1’) away from the sidewall
for every 3m (10’) of vessel height.

20 or 28o, depending on

(100mm [4”] horn antenna)
(rod antenna and 150mm [6”]
horn antenna)
(200mm [8”] horn antenna)
Polarization Effect
Mounting the unit too close to a wall may cause echoes to disappear at specific levels
due to wave cancellation. A strong false reflection from an internal tank obstruction can
be reduced or eliminated by rotating the unit to reduce this polarization effect.
False Reflections
Minimize false reflections first by rotating the instrument for best signal (lowest false
echo amplitude). Then use the TVT shaper parameters (P831, 832, 837 and 838) to
prevent false echo detection.
7ML19981CL01
IQ Radar 300 – INSTRUCTION MANUAL
Page 13
Installation
Flat obstructions and struts perpendicular to the emission cone cause large false
reflections. They reflect the radar signal with high amplitude. Round profile interfering
surfaces diffuse reflections of the radar signals and cause false reflections with low
amplitude.

• Signal amplitude increases with horn
diameter, so use the largest practical
size.
• Optional waveguide extensions and/or
purging system∗ can be installed between
the flange and the antenna.
A purging system is an option available for this antenna type. This provides an inlet on
the flange where cooling air or cleaning fluid may be supplied. The air or liquid
passes through the flange and exits the inside of the horn to clean the antenna
system.

Rod Extension Requirements
Mounting: Rod Assembly
Ideally, the standpipe should be as short as possible. If your
application requires a standpipe that exceeds our
recommended maximum length, consider using a shielded
rod configuration.
If you create a new standpipe for the radar unit, the weld
seams must be on the outside of the standpipe. Ensure that
there are no seams or lips on the inside of the standpipe or
you may get erratic readings.
If the mounting illustrated above is not suitable due to the minimum blanking
requirements, consider the shielded rod or horn antenna options.
Standpipes that are 200mm (8”) or larger in diameter provide excellent signal conditions.
Under these conditions you can use the standard rod without extensions for standpipe
lengths of up to 610mm (24”).
Mounting Threaded Rod Antenna
You can use 1.5” or 2” threaded process connections. There are three thread types:
NPT, BSP, and G.

Mounting: Manhole Covers
A manhole cover is typically a standpipe that is 610mm (24”) or greater in diameter, with
a cover.
To provide the optimum signal conditions, locate the antenna off-center with respect to
the cover, typically 100mm (4”) from the side of the manhole.
100mm

Mounting: Horn Antennas or Shielded Rod
The end of the horn, or the end of the shield section, should protrude a minimum of
10mm (0.5”) to avoid interference with the standpipe.

also be used to provide optimum signal conditions on foaming materials.
Suitable pipe diameters are 50mm (2”) to 250mm (10”). A rod antenna or a horn antenna
may be used.
Smoothness
One continuous length of metallic pipe is preferred, without joints. If joints are
unavoidable, you must machine them to close tolerances (± 0.25mm [± 0.010”]) and weld
a connecting sleeve on the outside.
vent hole
Suitable pipe
diameters are:
2” (50mm) to
10” (250mm).
You can use either
a rod or horn
antenna.
Ensure there is a vent at the upper end of the side pipe to equalize pressure and keep
the liquid-level in the pipe constant with the liquid-level in the vessel.

Mounting: Horn with Waveguide Extensions
Use this combination if the standpipe is long
and the diameter is small.
For example, if the standpipe is 100mm (4”) in
diameter and 460mm (18”) in length), the rod
antenna is not suitable due to standpipe
interference.
Waveguide extensions are available in custom
lengths.
If the horn diameter is too large for the standpipe
opening, you need to insert it from inside the vessel.
The horn must be connected to the IQ 300 process
flange.

Operation
Overview
The IQ Radar 300 is an advanced level-measuring device for liquids and slurries. Using
advanced pulse radar technology, the device calculates material level by emitting a
series of radar pulses and then analyzing their reflections.
The device consists of an enclosed electronic component mounted to a flanged antenna
component. The electronic component generates a 5.8 GHz (U.S.A. 6.3 GHz) radar signal
that is directed to the antenna, waveguide, or horn.
The radar signal is emitted axially from the antenna and propagates along this axis in a
defined conical beam decreasing in strength at a rate proportional to the square of the
change in distance.
The radar pulse detects the interface between the dielectric constant of the atmosphere
and that of the material being measured. Electro-magnetic wave propagation is not
sensitive to the temperature and atmospheric conditions, or to variations in the vessel.
Transceiver
The IQ Radar 300 transceiver operates under 1 of 5 sets of pre-set conditions (P003).

When the echoes are received, the relevant echo algorithm (P820) is applied to
determine the true material echo.
The measurement response limits the maximum rate at which the display and analog
output respond to changes in measurement. Select this carefully, especially where liquid
surfaces are in agitation or fall into the radar path during filling. Determine the actual
vessel filling and emptying rates, and set P003 to a measurement response just faster
than the maximum filling or emptying rate (whichever is greater).
7ML19981CL01
IQ Radar 300 – INSTRUCTION MANUAL
Page 41
Operation
Pulses are transmitted from the antenna at a fixed repetition rate. The reflected echoes
are received and digitally converted to an echo profile. The profile is analyzed to
determine the distance from the material surface to the flange face. This distance is
used as a basis for the display of material level and mA output.
Loss of Echo (LOE)
A loss of echo (LOE) occurs when the calculated measurement is judged to be unreliable
because the confidence (P805) is less than the threshold (P804). Refer to Operation
Troubleshooting on page 83.
If the condition persists beyond the time limit set by the Fail-Safe timer (P070), the
Confidence icon changes from full to partial:
to
The response to LOE is set by P072 and P219. They determine whether the reading and
mA output will be immediately forced to the Fail-Safe default (P071 and P219). Upon
receiving a reliable echo, the loss of echo condition is aborted, the Confidence icon
returns to full, and the reading and mA output return to the current level at the rate set
by P072.
Blanking
Operation
Near-blanking (P800) is set to ignore the zone in front of the antenna where false echoes
can appear during the receive cycle. They are often created by internal impediments
like a ladder rung, and are usually indicated by an incorrect high level reading. False
echoes can be overcome by increasing the near-blanking value from its factory setting.
Auto False Echo Suppression (P837) is recommended in preference to extending the
blanking distance from factory values.
Far-end blanking is a feature that ignores the zone below the zero or empty level, where
false echoes can appear at levels that interfere with the processing of the true echo.

In applications where the zero level is above the bottom of the vessel and you need to

7ML19981CL01
Analog Output
The IQ Radar 300 can be programmed to provide an analog output (P200) of 4 to 20 mA,
and for proportional or inverse span.
Programming
When the unit is put into PROGRAM mode, the analog output level holds its prior value
unless the mA output function is the common output or HART is the communication
protocol.
Run
The analog output responds in the following manner:
P001 = 1 (level)
P001 = 2 (space)
P001 = 3 (distance)
0 and 100% are percentage of full-scale reading (m, cm, mm, ft, in).
Operation
Volume
To program the unit for volume, set:
•
•
•
operation (P001) to level 1 (see page 51)
tank shape (P050) to a value other than 0 (see page 53)
other volume parameters (P051 to P053) as required
To program the unit for ullage, set:
•
•
•
operation (P001) to space 2 (see page 51)
tank shape (P050) to a value other than 0 (see page 53)
other volume parameters (P051 to P053) as required
Fail-Safe
When the Fail-Safe timer (P070) expires, the mA output responds as follows:

RUN/PROGRAM
When the IQ Radar 300 changes from RUN to PROGRAM,
PROGRAM the unit no longer responds to
the process. The last measurement is stored and the associated readings and mA signal
output are held.
The unit reverts to the parameter last addressed during the previous program session.
Upon return to RUN,
RUN the transceiver resumes operation. The reading and mA output
default to the last measurement taken. The reading and associated outputs migrate to

Application Examples
These IQ Radar 300 application examples can be used as set-up references. The
parameter value tables relate the values to the functions.
Application Example: Asphalt in Storage Tank
Note:
•
•
The minimum distance from the flange face to the target is limited by nearblanking P800.
Only set P837 if the product is at least 2m (78”) away from the flange face. If it is closer,
leave P837 at 1 until the level drops and the distance increases beyond 2m (78”).
The application is to obtain a level
measurement and corresponding 4-20 mA
output proportional to asphalt levels in a
storage tank.
The bottom of the antenna flange is 5m
from the tank bottom. The empty level is 0m
(bottom) and the full level (span) is 4.5m
from the bottom. The maximum rate of
filling or emptying is about 0.1m/min. In the
event of a loss of echo, the IQ 300 is to go
into Fail-Save Hi after 2 minutes.

Set P003 to a measurement response just faster than the maximum filling or emptying
rate (whichever is greater).
If the IQ 300 does not keep step with the rate of level change, select a faster rate. If the
reading bounces around an average value, select a slower rate. In general, slower
response time is associated with greater reliability. Noisy applications or those with
agitators tend to be more manageable at slower response rates, as these make use of
filtering, echo verification, and longer Fail-Safe delay.

echo verification:
verification : discriminates between agitator blades in motion (spurious noise) and

P820 Algorithm
If a material agitator (mixer) is used in the vessel monitored, set Echo Lock to 1
(maximum verification) or 2 (material agitator) to avoid agitator blade detection. To avoid
stationary blade detection, ensure the agitator is always running while the IQ 300 is
monitoring the vessel.
When set for 1 (maximum verification) or 2 (material agitator), a new measurement
outside of the Echo Lock Window (P713) must meet the sampling criterion (P712).
For 3 (total lock), Echo Lock Window (P713) is pre-set to 0 (zero). The IQ 300 continuously
searches for the best echo according to the algorithm chosen (P820). If the selected
echo is within the window, the window is then centered about the echo. If not, the
window widens with each successive shot until the selected echo is within the window.
The window then returns to its normal width.
When Echo Lock is 0 (off), the IQ 300 responds immediately to a new measurement,
within the constraints set by the Max Fill/Empty Rate (P700/P701). However,
measurement reliability is affected.
P712 Echo Lock Sampling
Sets the number of consecutive echoes appearing above or below the echo currently
locked onto. Sampling ratio must occur before the measurements are validated as the

P711 Echo Lock
The Echo Lock Window is a “distance window” (Units, P005) centered on the echo and
used to derive the reading. When a new measurement is in the window, the window is
re-centered and the new reading calculated. Otherwise, the new measurement is
verified by Echo Lock (P711) before the reading is updated.
When 0 is entered, the window is automatically calculated after each measurement. For
slower Measurement Response (P003) values, the window is narrow; for faster P003
values, the window is wider.

Adjust this parameter while viewing the echo profile with Dolphin Plus. Refer to the
Dolphin Plus online help for details. The TVT curve is divided into 40 breakpoints, which
you can access via the index field. Each breakpoint is normalized to a value of 0, as
displayed in the parameter value field. By changing the breakpoint value up or down, the
intensity of the bias applied to that breakpoint of the curve is changed accordingly. By
changing the value of adjacent breakpoints, the effective bias to the shaper can be
broadened to suit the desired correction. If you are experiencing more than one false
echo, you can apply additional shaping can along different points of the curve. Apply
shaping sparingly in order to avoid missing the true echo.

Writing Parameters
The method of writing parameters is similar to the method of reading them. Become
familiar with Reading Parameters, (above), before attempting to write any parameters.
Writing parameter values to the IQ 300:
1.
Write the primary index value into R43,999.
2.
Write the secondary index value into R43,998.
3.
Write the desired format value into R43,997.
4.
Write the value to the appropriate parameter register.

Communications: Data Types
The IQ Radar 300 parameters do not always use integers to hold values. For the
convenience of the programmer, those values are converted to and from a 16-bit integer
number. This section describes the conversion process.
Numeric Values
Communications
Numeric parameter values are the most common. For example, parameter P920
(Reading) returns a number that represents the current reading (either level or volume,
depending on the IQ-300 configuration).
Numeric values are requested or set in units or percent of span, and may be specified
using a number of decimal places.
Numeric values must be in the range -20,000 to +20,000 to be valid. If a parameter is
requested and its value is more than +20,000, the number 32,767 is returned; if it is less
than -20,000, the number -32,768 is returned. If this overflow happens, decrease the
number of decimal places.
If a parameter cannot be expressed in terms of percent of span, or has no meaningful
value, the number 22,222 is returned. Try requesting the parameter in units, or refer to
the Parameter Description section on page 51 for an explanation of the format and use
of the requested parameter.
Split Values
Certain parameters are actually a pair of numbers separated by a colon, using this
format: xx:yy.
One example is P712 (Echo Lock Sampling) where:
xx = the number of above echoes
yy = the number of below echoes
The number which corresponds to xx:yy, for either reading or setting a parameter, is
determined by the following formula:
For storing to the device:
value = (xx + 128) x 256 + (yy + 128)
For reading from the device:
xx = (value / 256) – 128
yy = (value % 256) – 128
where % is the modulus operator.
The modulus can be computed by following these steps:
value1 = value / 256
value2 = remainder of value1
value3 = value2 x 256
yy = value3 – 128
It may simplify the calculation to note:
xx = (most significant byte of value) – 128
yy = (least significant byte of value) – 128

Error Handling
Modbus Responses
Communications
When polled by a Modbus Master, a slave device will do one of the following:
1.
Not reply. This means that something went wrong with the transmission of the message.
2.
Echo back the command with the correct response (see the Modbus specification for
more details). This is the normal response.
3.
Return an Exception Code. This reflects an error in the message.
IQ Radar 300 uses the following exception codes:
Code
Name
Meaning
01
Illegal Function
The function code received in the query is not
an allowable action for the slave.
02
Illegal Data Address
The data address received in the query is not
an allowable address for the slave.
03
Illegal Data Value
A value contained in the query data field is not
an allowable value for the slave.
Error Handling
Errors can be traced to two general sources:
1.
There is an error in transmission.
or
2.
The host tries to do something that is not a valid action.
In the first case, the IQ 300 does not respond and the master waits for a Response Time
Out error, which causes the master to re-send the message.
In the second case, it depends on what the host tries to do. In general, IQ 300 will not
give an error to the host request. Various actions and the expected outcome are as
follows:
•
If the host reads an invalid register, the host will get an undetermined value back.
•
If the host writes an invalid register (a non-existing parameter or a read only
parameter), the value will be ignored and no error response will be made. However,
the current value will not reflect the desired new value.
Page 80
IQ Radar 300 – INSTRUCTION MANUAL
7ML19981CL01
If the host writes a read only register, then the value will be ignored and no error
response will be made. However, the current value will not reflect the desired new
value.
•
If P799 is read-only, then the value will be ignored and no error response will be
made. However, the current value will not reflect the desired new value.
•
If the host attempts to write one or more registers that are out of range, an
exception response code 2 or 3 is generated depending on whether the start
address is valid.
•
If the host attempts to read one or more registers that are out of range, an
exception response code of 2 or 3 is generated.
•
If the host used an unsupported function code, an exception response code of 01
should be generated. However, this is not guaranteed and there may be no
response.

Troubleshooting
Communication Troubleshooting
Troubleshooting
Generally:
1.
Check the following:
•
•
•
There is power at the unit
The LCD shows the relevant data
The device can be programmed using the hand programmer
2.
Check the wiring pin-outs and verify that the connection is correct.
3.
Verify that values in set-up parameters P770 to P773 match the settings in the
computer communicating with the unit.
4.
Check that the port you are using on the computer is correct. Sometimes trying a
different Modbus driver will solve the problem. An easy stand-alone driver called
ModScan32 is available from Win-Tech at www.win-tech.com. We have found that
this driver is useful to test communications.
Specifically:
If you try to set an IQ 300 parameter via remote communications, but the parameter
remains unchanged:
•
Some parameters can only be changed when the device is not scanning. Try
putting the device in program mode using the operating mode function.
•
Try setting the parameter from the keypad. (First make sure that the lock parameter
[P000] is set to 1954.)
•
The communications control parameter P799 must be set to 1 to be able to write
parameters to the IQ 300.

Where the chart does not apply, please use your own judgement regarding the use of the IQ 300.
Parameter P343 is required to monitor the Internal Temperature. It gives you an excellent
indication of how reliably the product will perform thermally when installed on your process
o
vessel. The maximum allowable internal temperature (P343) is 81 C.
P343 also allows you to decide whether or not attention should be focussed on redesigning
the installation. For example, if the internal temperature exceeds the maximum allowable
limit, a sun shield or a longer standpipe may be required. Engineering will use this
temperature reading (P343) to gauge the extent of change required to the installation in order
to provide a reliable thermal-operating zone for the IQ 300.
o
Warning: Internal temperature must not exceed 81o C! Warranty may be void.
