Radar Level Tool - Dielectric Constant (k) Values

Dielectric Constant (k) is a number relating to the ability of a material to carry alternating current to the ability of vacuum to carry alternating current. The capacitance created by the presence of the material is directly related to the Dielectric Constant of the material. Knowing the Dielectric Constant (k) of a material is crucial to correctly layout and apply radar level transmitters. The value directly influences the maximum measuring range or radar level sensors.
