WRAS certified submersible level sensor

25 February 2019

VEGA Controls has received WRAS approval of a submersible pressure sensor as a whole device. This means a full product certificate number registration and listing on the WRAS approved product list.

The VEGAWELL submersible pressure sensor is said to be the first transmitter of this type to be fully WRAS certified and meets the requirements of Regulation 31 (4)(b). The WRAS certification means it will not contaminate or harbour microbial growth when used in potable or drinking water. This enables it to be deployed anywhere on the water supply chain –  from the heart of a water treatment facility, to monitoring in the network or measurement of drinking water on a business premises.

The sensor has been fully laboratory tested and assessed as a complete device/assembly, on top of the materials of the individual components, which included testing and scrutiny of their composition, design and surface finishes. 

A newly certified material has also been added, the 99.9% pure CERTEC Sapphire ceramic which makes up the sensor diaphragm of the sensor. 

The VEGAWELL WRAS certified transmitter is said to offer cost-effective, safe level and pressure measurement of drinking water throughout the supply chain. With ranges from 0.1 Bar to 60 Bar, it is suitable for use in applications such as clean water reservoirs, pump control, storage or small header tanks and associated pipework. 

Additionally, it features integrated lightning protection as standard, PE cable lengths up to 1000m, as well as an optional PT100 output for water temperature measurement.
