Rosemount 5300 series

Rosemount 5300 series

We have a rosemount 5302 guided wave radar and configuration and and variables are all setup but we have a setback our fouth variable is signal quality. We get our variable but we are trying to scale it from 0% to 100% and send the value to our HMI. Does anyone know the ranges of the signal quality? I realize this is something very minor but any help would be appreciated. P.S. the Emmerson sight was totally and unhelpful at all dont recommend using it for questions.

RE: Rosemount 5300 series

It took a Google search to get directly to the page with the manuals.


In the Manual it says:

The Signal Quality spans from 0 to 10, where 0 indicates a low margin, and 10 indicates a
high margin. It indicates how much margin there is until the noise peak is indicated as the
surface level.

RE: Rosemount 5300 series

yes but for our signal quality the max we go is 1.864 and our min is 1.436 so somewhere in there we are not understanding the actual signal quality. Apparently it is the signal from the radar to the level threshold according to my partner. But we're both still a little confused as to why it is that low.

Then you need to call an applications engineer at Rosemount.
