Level Sensor VEGA VEGACAL 66

VEGA VEGACAL 66 capacitive level sensor provides continuous level measurement of liquids and solids that are not abrasive and is suitable for use in all areas of industry (including hazardous areas).

VEGACAL 66 level sensor features a fully insulated probe that is designed for the measurement of bulk solids and can also be used for measuring non-conductive liquids such as oils.

The proven mechanical construction of the level sensor ensures high functional safety, simple mounting and setup options save money. A long product lifetime is also achieved as well as low levels of product maintenance requirements.

In addition, maximum utilisation of the vessel is achieved due to level measurement being carried out over the entire length of the levels sensors probe.

VEGA LEVEL SENSOR – VEGAPLUS 66 FEATURES

FunctioN

Sensor and vessel form the two electrodes of a capacitor. A capacitance change caused by a level change is evaluated by the VEGA integrated electronics and converted into an appropriate output signal. The level measurement is carried out over the entire sensor length without a blocking distance.

Materials

The wetted parts of the instrument are made of stainless steel and probe insulation is made of PTFE.

Housings

The level sensor housings are available as single chamber or double chamber version in plastic, stainless steel or aluminium with protection ratings up to IP68 (1 bar).

ELECTRONICS

VEGA sensors are available in different electronics versions. Apart from the two-wire electronics with 4 … 20 mA/HART, there are two pure digital versions with Profibus PA and Foundation Fieldbus possible as well as one version for connection to a signal conditioning instrument.

VEGA Sensors

VEGA sensors provide level, point level and pressure measurement of liquids, solids and powders in dairy tanks, sanitary tanks, single shell tanks, batch processing tanks and silo tanks.

VEGA LEVEL SENSORS – vegacal

Vegacal level sensors provide level measurement for bulk solids and liquids. In capacitive level measurement, the sensor and vessel form the two electrodes of a capacitor where any change in capacitance due to a level change is converted into a level signal. VEGA is a global manufacturer of process and hazardous area instrumentation.
