The Rosemount 3300 Guided Wave Radar
Level and Interface transmitters
For reliable and accurate level measurement in process tanks, Guided Wave Radar technology is the perfect solution. And the new Rosemount 3300 Series is the perfect choice among Guided Wave Radar (GWR) level transmitters.
The Rosemount 3300 provides reliable and cost effective measurement in a number of applications where other types of loop-powered transmitters cannot be used. GWR technology combined with advanced signal processing and sensitivity ensures that the Rosemount 3300 Series delivers both level and interface measurement data from the same transmitter.
* First loop-powered level and interface transmitter.
* Multivariable™ output from one device reduces process penetrations and installation costs.
* Direct level measurement means no compensation for changes in temperature, pressure, density, dielectric or conductivity.
* Virtually unaffected by dust, vapor, interfering obstacles and turbulence. Even suitable for small or odd shaped tanks.
* Intrinsically safe and Explosion proof makes it suitable for hazardous areas.
* PC setup software with installation wizard provides easy configuration.
* Dual compartment transmitter housing (electronics and cabling separated) which can
be removed without opening the tank, and cut-to-fit probes facilitate easy installation and minimize need for maintenance.
* Compatible with the Asset Management Solutions™ (AMS) plant management
software – cuts costs by streamlining maintenance tasks.
The Rosemount 3300 provides reliable and cost effective level measurements in a wide range of applications. Guided Wave Radar technology combined with advanced signal processing and sensitivity enables the Rosemount 3300 Series to deliver both level and interface measurement data from the same transmitter. The 3300 series is now available with a new line of innovative probes, designed to perform reliably and withstand even the toughest process conditions. Two-wire connections ensure easy and inexpensive installation. Features include:
- A wide range of probe styles to cover virtually any application
- Multivariable, loop-powered level and interface transmitter which reduces tank penetrations and installation cost
- Direct Level Measurement means no compensation required for changes in temperature, pressure, density, dielectric or conductivity
- Easy-to-use Radar Configuration Tools makes setup quick and easy and provides diagnostics with waveform plotting and logging tools
- Virtually unaffected by dust, vapor and interfering obstacles
- Robust modular design resulting in low operating cost and increased safety
- Easily integrated into exisiting HART and Modbus plant architecture.
- Rosemount 9901 – high quality chambers for process level instrumentation
The smart, loop-powered Rosemount 3300 Series level and interface transmitter is based on guided wave radar technology. Reliable measurements on liquids and slurries are provided, even for severe conditions, due to advanced signal processing with digital sampling and a high signal to noise ratio.
Features of the Rosemount 3300 Series level and interface transmitter include easy installation and commissioning through two-wire technology, and pre-configured transmitter or user-friendly configuration with the included PC software package. Transmitter operation is virtually trouble-free as the Rosemount 3300 Series level and interface transmitter is unaffected by dust, vapor, interfering obstacles and turbulence. The Rosemount 3300 Series level and interface transmitter is also suitable for small or oddly shaped tanks. With direct level measurement there is no need for compensation for hanges in temperature, pressure, density, dielectric or conductivity. The robust modular design has a dual compartment housing allowing for removal without opening the tank.
The Rosemount 3300 Series level and interface transmitter can be used for level measurements on most liquids, semi-liquids, some solids and liquid / liquid interfaces. The Rosemount 3301 guided wave radar level transmitter is used for liquids and some solids. The Rosemount 3302 Multivariable ™ guided wave radar level and interface transmitter is used for liquids only.
The guided wave Rosemount 3300 Series level and interface transmitter offer high reliability and performance. Measurements are virtually unaffected by temperature, pressure, vapor gas mixtures, density, turbulence, bubbling / boiling, varying dielectric media and viscosity. Since the waves are guided along the probe, this technology is excellent for small and narrow tanks / tank openings.

Features & Benefits
Radar is a continuous level measurement technique that offers several advantages. The measurement is virtually unaffected by temperature, pressure, dust and vapor. The instrument has no moving parts and therefore requires little or no maintenance. It measures the level directly and is therefore unaffected by most fluid property changes. Additionally, the Rosemount 3300 Series has the following benefits:
High application flexibility allows instrument standardization
1 – Guided Wave Radar probes to suit a wide range of applications including corrosive- and high temperature / high pressure environments
2 – Probes may be cut on site to fit the tank
3 – Handles difficult tank geometries and heavy vapour and dust
Robust modular design resulting in low operating cost and increased safety
4 – Dual Compartment housing separates cable connections and electronics. Housing can be rotated 360° for easy read-out
5 – Detachable transmitter head allows replacement of transmitter head without breaching the tank atmosphere
6 – No mechanical moving parts that require maintenance and no need for re-calibration
Easy commissioning resulting in low installation cost
7 – User-friendly PC-based Radar Configuration Tools included for easy configuration, or optional preconfigured from factory
8 – Single assembly for quick installation
9 – Level and Interface reading from the same transmitter only requires one tank penetration and one pair of wires
10 – Existing cabling may be used
– 2-wire loop-powered with easy to access terminals
