Vega VEGAPULS WL S 61 radar sensor

Wednesday, 18 September, 2019 | Supplied by: VEGA Australia Pty Ltd



The VEGAPULS WL S 61 radar sensor is designed for all simple applications in the water supply and sewage sectors. Featuring a wide range of mounting options, it can be readily integrated into existing infrastructure.

Radar technology offers numerous advantages compared with ultrasonic sensors, which used to be standard in this sector; radar is independent of weather influences, strong sun, wind, fog or rain. In addition, no compensation is needed for variations in the signal transmission time due to air temperature fluctuations. With an accuracy of ±5 mm, the product covers a wide range of applications.

The sensor is particularly suitable for level and flow measurement in water treatment plants. Its fine focusing enables its use in pumping stations and rainwater overflow basins, for flow measurement in open channels, and for level monitoring.

The sensor’s robust housing is wear- and maintenance-free, and its high degree of protection, IP68 (2 bar), also makes it suitable for applications where the sensor may be temporarily submerged. The unit complies with the latest LPR standard (level probing radar) and is approved for open-air use without restrictions or special attachments.

Bluetooth permits wireless operation from a smartphone or tablet (or a PC with PACTware), making commissioning and diagnosis simple. Corresponding display and signal processing units enable the display of measurements and provide the relay outputs needed, for example, to control a pump.
