The PiloTREK non-Contact Radar Level Transmitter receives IEC-Ex Certificate

The PiloTREK non-contact radar level transmitter has been a long standing member in Semrad's range of level transmitters and has been used very effectively in multiple applications through the years. This year, the PiloTREK has received an update, upgrading the internal electronics for increased stability and durability as well as using a 25Ghz (k-band) to increase the accuracy or the sensor. Changing from the former frequency of 8.5Ghz has brought about more than just increased accuracy, it has also increased the penetrative power of the electromagnetic waves, allowing the new PiloTREK to be used effectively even in conditions with steam and other particulates that would cause interference in inferior instruments.

What does IEC-Ex Certification Mean?

The brand new internal electronics are not the only new features of the updated PiloTREK. IEC-Ex approval means that the level isntrument that has been widely used and appreciated across Australian and the world is now available for use in hazardous areas, including explosive atmospheres. This was one of the most requested features for the PiloTREK, but has never been available until now due to the lengthy and costly testing procedures conducted by the International Electrotechnical Commission on the instruments.

Below, you can view the IEC-Ex approval certificate for the latest series of PiloTREK radar level as well as the product brochure. If you require more information about the PiloTREK non-contact radar level transmitter, please feel free to send an email through or give us a call.
