Process and control today | 6X: VEGA’s simple formula for mass level indication

A new era in level detection of bulk solids with the non-contact radar sensors VEGAPULS6X.

With VEGAPULS 6X, VEGA “rethinks” radar. The result: a new radar level sensor capable of measuring virtually any bulk solids application imaginable. Gone are the days when users had to choose their level instrument from a multitude of options.

Traditionally, the search for a suitable bulk solids level sensor starts with thinking about questions such as: which solution would be best for my application? How can I ensure that I choose the correct and most reliable device for the success of my project? Of course, non-contact radar offers excellent answers to these questions.

The customer already knows their own applications, details of product properties and the process they want to measure or control; the temperature ranges concerned, the standards to be complied with and the installation accessories available. But, until now, choosing a radar-based level instrument could be a laborious, time-consuming, and stressful task, matching those process details to a myriad of radar frequencies, model numbers, part numbers, and of options offered.

Today, this selection process is simplified by VEGA. With its new VEGAPULS 6X: one device for everyone and a new selection and ordering method focused on the customer application. Simply enter process and mechanical information and this allows for complete and correct setup and even pre-calibration of the specific sensor required – for any application, whether liquids or bulk solids.

“Ultimately, it’s not the sensor that matters, but what users can achieve with it in their individual processes,” says Florian Burgert, who as product manager was closely involved in the product development from the very beginning. “Just knowing that they have chosen the best possible measurement solution and that they will reach their goal faster with it, makes a big difference in their daily operations.”

Over a million radar instruments in use worldwide. The success story of today’s world leader in radar level measurement began 30 years ago. In the meantime, VEGA sensors have optimized millions of industrial processes. History includes milestones such as the world’s first two-wire radar instrument, the first dedicated radar for bulk solids, and an advanced 80 GHz non-contact radar for solids level measurement that revolutionized sensor performance. radar level for customers. Behind these successes are many people who share a common passion: “At VEGA, we don’t do a hundred different things, we focus on what we do best: Radar. says product manager Jürgen Skowaisa, speaking on behalf of everyone.

Complete Protection

The new VEGAPULS 6X offers the best of what is technically possible today: a self-diagnosis system which immediately detects damage or interference, which guarantees considerably high availability and safety, it also has a new technology for radar chip, with extensive application possibilities, better than ever performance and simpler operation.

The radar is SIL-certified and compliant with the latest IEC 62443-4-2 cybersecurity standard, which meets stringent requirements for secure communication and access control.

The advantage lies in making it easier for users to select their device and monitor their industrial processes. The ultimate goal of VEGAPULS 6X is precisely that – maximum simplification – a sensor that can handle virtually any application.

In the future, the customer will no longer have to worry about technology, model numbers, frequency or instrument version. In many cases, all application-specific settings can be made in VEGAPULS 6X before it leaves the factory, so all that remains is for the user to install, connect, done : nothing’s easier.
