METHOD FOR MEASURING FILL LEVEL OF A FILL SUBSTANCE LOCATED IN A CONTAINER

Pub Date: 2018-07-26

Pub Number: US20180209835

The invention relates to a method for measuring fill level of a substance in a container. The method is based on pulse radar in which the repetition frequency of the microwave pulse is not constant but is controlled as a function of travel time. The repetition frequency increases as the travel time becomes shorter and lessens as the travel time becomes longer. The fill level is not based on the measured travel time, but is determined based on the resulting repetition frequency. The invention provides a pulse radar-based method for fill level measurement that can be implemented with reduced circuit complexity. This results from the fact that only the repetition frequency needs to be registered for fill level measurement. Neither a complex analog evaluating circuit nor a highly accurate time measurement are required. Complex digital data processing, such as the FMCW-based method required for fill level measurement, is absent.
