Paper Abstract

In a composite board factory, the continuous permittivity monitoring of large-sized particle boards was to be solved using a microwave on-line sensor system. The method described below is based on a free-space / double transmission/ reflection type two-parameter (complex vector) measurement. A short description of the measurement set-up, the system-design and the design of the basic microwave elements are included. Using low cost MMICs, self-designed microstrip antennas and passive detectors/ modulated-backscatterers combined with modern digital spread-spectrum techniques made the realization of the concept possible.
