A new era in level sensing keeps things simple

13 March 2022

With its latest product offering VEGAPULS 6X, VEGA is offering a single level radar sensor that is able to measure in virtually every conceivable application. 

Traditionally, the search for a suitable level sensor begins by thinking about which solution would work best for an application. Choosing a radar-based level instrument has always been a laborious task, matching process details to myriad radar frequencies, part numbers and options on offer. 

VEGAPULS 6X has transformed this process with just one device for all and a new selection and ordering method that is customer-application focused. It enables complete, correct configuration and even pre-calibration of the specific sensor required for both liquids and bulk solids applications. 

The new sensor is said to offer the best that is technically feasible today – a self-diagnosis system that immediately detects damage or interference, that ensures significantly high availability and safety, it also has new radar-chip technology, with expanded application possibilities and simpler operation. 

The radar features SIL certification, and cybersecurity issues have also been taken into account with compliance with security standard IEC 62443-4-2.

It’s true value lies in making it easier for users to select a device to monitor industrial processes. There is no longer a need to worry about the technology, frequency or instrument version. Even setup and commissioning has been reduced to a minimum, requiring now just a few clicks and basic application parameters. In many cases, all application-specific settings can be made in VEGAPULS 6X before it leaves the factory.
