A couple years ago, Siemens published a great handbook on using radar to measure solids levels, but the $60 price tag limited its readership.
You can now download the book for free as an electronic epub file formatted for electronic readers, which in my case, is the Firefox browser on my laptop. It could be any browser (Internet Explorer or Chrome), or presumably any electronic book reader.
What is false echo suppression?

A few weeks ago, I wrote about problems a customer encountered trying to move a functioning radar level device from one tank to another. With a little light reading of the user manual, and one change on the radar, the situation was resolved.
People are usually familiar with the concept of false echo suppression: looking at a tank and mapping out the obstructions that can cause false readings, like baffles, ladders, tank braces. But the Siemens products we work with do it a little differently. It’s a built-in feature on Siemens ultrasonic and radar level devices, and only takes five minutes to run.
