Radar measurement Time-of-Flight Micropilot FMR52
For applications in aggressive liquids Micropilot FMR52 offers extraordinary advantages with its completely PTFE-filled and flush-mounted horn antenna. The FMR52 is also the sensor for hygiene-sensitive applications in the food and life sciences industry – ASME BPE, USP Class VI, 3-A and EHEDG approvals. Micropilot is used for continuous, non-contact level measurement of liquids, pastes and slurries. The measurement is not affected by changing media, temperature changes, gas blankets or vapors.
- Hardware and software developed according to IEC 61508 up to SIL3 (in homogeneous redundancy)
- Reliable non-contact measurement even for changing product and process conditions
- HistoROM data management concept for fast and easy commissioning, maintenance and diagnostics
- Highest reliability even in the presence of obstructions in the vessel due to new Multi-Echo Tracking evaluation
- Heartbeat Technology for a cost-effective and safe plant operation during the entire life cycle
- Seamless integration into control or asset management systems and intuitive, menu-guided operation concept (on-site or via the control system)
- World’s easiest proof test concept for SIL and WHG saves time and cost

E&H Group – Company History
In 1953, two seemingly different men came together to set up a new company in a private apartment in Lörrach, Germany: One was the Swiss engineer Georg H Endress, just 29 years old, tall and strong; the other was 58-year-old German bank manager Ludwig Hauser, clearly older and slim in stature.
A strong team
However, these unlikely business partners proved to be a perfect match. Endress’ vision and Hauser’s caution proved to be the cornerstones of success. The young engineer clearly saw the opportunities that the new electronic level measurement technology had to offer. Until then, measured values had to be read and gauged by hand. The experienced banker took a careful approach to business and steered the company safely through the turbulent early years.
The early days
The starting capital of L Hauser KG was 2,000 Deutschemarks. The first ‘operating facility’ was in a room in Hauser’s apartment in Lörrach. Incidentally, the firm’s name came from Ludwig Hauser’s wife Luise: the entry in the commercial register of 10 February 1953 lists her as shareholder. The company first traded under the name Endress+Hauser in 1957.
Georg H Endress led the company for four decades. He opened up new markets and fields of application, developing the company – specializing in level measurement and growing into a supplier of complete solutions for the processing industry. By 1995, when he handed the management of the company over to his second eldest son, Klaus, the backroom business had grown into a global company with 4,300 employees.
Enhancing product basket and company culture
Klaus Endress (born 1948) purposefully continued his father’s work and developed it, over time leaving his own managerial mark. He successfully met the challenges of a globalized world, recognizing the significance of services and solutions. Klaus Endress continued his commitment to a strong company culture and followed the strategy of sustainable growth.
Change at the top
On 1 January 2014, Matthias Altendorf (born 1967) took over as CEO of the Endress+Hauser Group from Klaus Endress, who became President of the Supervisory Board. Mr Altendorf promotes digitalization and applications for the Industrial Internet of Things and is further developing the offering in the field of laboratory and process analysis.
Endress+Hauser owns subsidiaries on all six continents. Today the Group employs a workforce of more than 13,000 employees in production, sales and services worldwide, generating net sales of over 2.2 billion euros.
