For over 60 years, VEGA has provided industry-leading products for the measurement of level, density, weight and pressure. As the inventor of the modern radiation-based measurement system and the first to introduce a two-wire loop powered radar, VEGA has a strong tradition of product development and improvement.

Radar is the better ultrasonic!

New radar instrument series from VEGA for the drinking water industry

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.

New radar instrument from VEGA proves to be a reliable assistant for the wastewater industry

The degree of automation in the wastewater industry is steadily increasing. Many facilities now operate completely autonomously. For that reason, the associated measurement technology must be reliable and maintenance-free.

VEGA has recently extended the proven VEGAPULS family with a new instrument series for continuous level measurement in the wastewater industry. These compact radar sensors measure at a frequency of 80 GHz and deliver accurate readings over many years, regardless of the ambient conditions. The new radar series is available in two versions: as a compact model with cable connection housings and as a standard model with fixed cable connection (IP68).

This makes the new VEGAPULS ideal for, among other things, flow measurement in main sewers leading to sewage treatment plants, determination of the degree of contamination in mechanical screening or level measurement in rainwater overflow basins. Thanks to the high precision of the radar sensors, the impounded and discharged water quantities can be measured with just one sensor. Up until now, such measurements were mostly carried out with ultrasonic measurement technology, which was often influenced by environmental factors such as solar radiation, condensation, temperature fluctuations or buildup.
