VEGAPULS 6X radar level sensor

Level sensors help users monitor their industrial processes. They often make processes more controllable and efficient, but even if they are basically easy to use, the process of selecting the right one for an application can still be difficult.

VEGA now offers one sensor for all applications: VEGAPULS 6X. Selecting the right frequency or determining the DK value of the medium are no longer obstacles, because choosing the right sensor specifications has become easier. The new configurator asks for the type of application and then quickly determines which sensor version is required. The entire procedure now consists of just a few mouse clicks. Of course, an advisory discussion with a VEGA radar specialist is still a good alternative to the configurator. In any case, the result is simplicity for users and a measurement solution that delivers results independently of the media properties, process conditions, vessel shapes and internal installations.

Suitable for industries such as chemical, energy, food, oil and gas and many others, the sensor is equipped with a comprehensive safety concept. Functional safety is ensured as it conforms with all the requirements of Safety Integrity Level. The certified sensor has SIL characteristics and provides the necessary operational safety to minimise risks in safety-related applications. It conforms to IEC 61511, which fulfils the strictest requirements for security of system access and communication control. And its self-diagnosis system continuously monitors the function of the sensor and recognises if it has been impaired in any way, thus contributing to higher plant availability and sensor performance.

It also features a second generation radar chip directly from VEGA, which is characterised by its low energy consumption, high sensitivity, scalable architecture and universal applicability. The radar antenna system and the chip are connected directly to each other, without any cable, for maximum performance.
