New radar instrument for the drinking water industry

Nov 25 2019 Read 849 Times

VEGA has now extended the proven VEGAPULS family with a new instrument series for continuous level measurement in the drinking water industry. The compact radar sensors measure at a frequency of 80 GHz and deliver highly accurate readings, regardless of the ambient conditions, over many years. Since VEGA has specially developed a dedicated radar level microchip for these sensors, it means the new radars are also very economically priced.

The new instrument series is available in two versions: as compact model with cable connection housing and as standard model with fixed cable connection (IP68).

The compact sensor can be used in a wide range of applications, from water catchment to water treatment and distribution. For example, the sensor is used to measure in front of coarse and fine screens – regardless of ambient conditions such as temperature or sensor deposits and buildup. The new instrument series is also ideal for deployment in precipitant and chemical treatment stations. It is capable of measuring a wide variety of media and gases reliably – even through the tops of plastic vessels if necessary. The new VEGAPULS sensors also deliver a convincing performance in elevated storage tanks for water distribution: their compact design and the fact that they are not even influenced by condensation make them perfect for this task.
