Germany: First 80-GHz Radar Level Sensor for Liquids Vega to Start a New Era of Radar Level Measurement with a “Game Changer”
March 1, 2016, the day on which a new calendar begins in the radar level measurement for liquids. Place of event: Schiltach in Black Forest/Germany. Persons in action: the level measurement specialists of Vega. Eponymous hero: the Vegapuls 64, the first radar level sensor worldwide working with a frequency of 80 GHz — and thus opening entirely new fields of application. PROCESS was present at the premier.
Schiltach/Germany – It was not long ago: Only a year and a half ago, Vega had very successfully introduced Vegapuls 69, a radar level sensor for continuous measurement of bulk materials. Novelty: Instead of the frequency of 26 GHz that was widespread till then, it measures a transmitting frequency higher by three factors, which brings with it a whole series of advantages.
This is followed by Vegapuls 64 for applications in liquid areas, which also measures with a high frequency of 80 GHz and put an exclamation mark in radar level measurement for liquids due to its high dynamics and a better focussing. The “Game Changer” was first presented to the trade press. “All the adversities, which slowed down radar level measurement so far, would become history with it”, says Günter Kech, Managing Director of Vega. See it for yourself: We have worked up an exciting product presentation for you in the picture gallery. Get to know the advantages of Vegapuls 64 as well as the next generation of universal display and control module Plicscom — which also has Bluetooth now — lucidly from pictures.
