Worlds first 80 GHz radar level sensor for liquids

Posted: Wednesday 23rd March 2016

VEGA introduces VEGAPULS 64, the first 80 GHz frequency contactless liquids radar level sensor. This higher frequency enables improved focusing of the radar beam, making measurement easier and more reliable, even under difficult conditions, in vessels with heating coils, baffles or agitators.

The VEGAPULS 64 beam angle allows the sensor to be used in vessels with many internal installations or heavy build up on the walls, the focused microwave beam simply avoids them. The smallest antenna is no larger than a £1 coin, yet still has a narrow beam angle. These compact dimensions enable the sensor to offer an excellent level measurement solution for even the smallest of process vessels. The new device has an ultra-wide dynamic range, which means even foaming, turbulent product surfaces, condensation, or antenna build up have little or no effect. It can also even measure very low dielectric products like hydrocarbons and liquid gases reliably, with an accuracy of +/-2 mm, over a range of up to 30 m.

Designed for use in the chemical, oil and gas, pharmaceutical and food industries, the VEGAPULS 64 has a wide range of resistant materials, connections and hygienic designs. In addition to mainstream manufacturing and processing industries, this sensor opens up application possibilities in pilot plants and even laboratories which, for space reasons, could not use radar level technology before. Bluetooth programming options using free downloadable app or PC offer added convenience and user safety.
