VEGA recently introduced to the market a range of Radar Level Transmitters that operate at a frequency of 80 GHz. This has allowed the Radar now to come equipped with smaller antennas and thus the result is a much smaller beam angle and better focusing. The focusing properties of a Radar Level Transmitter depend on it’s operating frequency. Until now 26GHz was regarded as the standard frequency, but by increasing to 80 GHz the antennas are up to 3 times smaller resulting in a considerable gain in returned signal.
For Liquid and Paste applications the VEGAPULS 64 offers a range of smaller process connections that are ideally suited to measure the contents of smaller vessels that are commonly found in the Food Industry.
With a much smaller beam angle internal structures and mixing blades are now not seen within the beam and allow the transmitter to track the level more accurately.
For Solids applications of powders and grains the VEGAPULS 69 has also allowed level measurement to be achieved even under the most difficult conditions. The options of aiming gymbles and air purge connections allow complete installation and application flexibility.
The 80 GHz range is available with all approvals required for the Food Industry from sanitary to dust.
Another added advantage to the full range of Transmitters is the ability to program and fault find via BLUETOOTH. This communication can be from a Smart Phone , Tablet or Laptop and can operate up to 25 metres from the transmitter.
