Universal measurement of bulk solids

With its high frequency of 80 GHz, Vegapuls 69 solves challenging measuring tasks in bulk solids – contactless. With its small beam angle, silo installations and reflections from the vessel walls are no longer a problem. Dust that occurs during filling does not interfere with the signal because its new microwave components reliably detect even the smallest reflection signals.

The universal radar sensor for bulk solids has a measuring range of up to 120 m and is available in three versions: With lightweight plastic antenna, with 1 “½” threaded connection, or with a lens antenna integrated in the flange.

A Bluetooth function integrated into the indicating and adjustment module of the radar sensor allows convenient and safe operation as well as display and evaluation from a distance of up to 25 m. All you need is the free Vega Tools app and a smartphone or tablet.

With the vibrating level switches, Vegavib and Vegawave, and the capacitive sensor, Vegacap, Vega instruments provide the required reliability and robustness, especially for powders, granulates, and demanding bulk solids.
