Working principle

LTDR uses TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) technology. Low-energy, high-frequency electromagnetic impulses,
generated by the sensor’s circuitry, are propagated along the probe which is immerged in the liquid to be measured. When
these impulses hit the surface of the liquid, part of the impulse energy is reflected back up the probe to the circuitry which then
calculates the fluid level from the time difference between the impulses sent and the impulses reflected. The sensor can
output the analyzed level as a continuous measurement reading through its analog output, or it can convert the values into freely
positionable switching output signals. LTDR Sensors are also known as Guided Radars or Guided Wave Radars.
