ENTRY-LEVEL RADAR SENSOR HAS BLUETOOTH INTERFACE

Available now from VEGA Australia, the VEGAPULS WL S 61 is an entry-level radar sensor that can be readily integrated into existing water supply and sewage infrastructure.

Radar technology offers many advantages over the ultrasonic sensors traditionally used in these applications, and in particular is immune to the influence of weather. No compensation is needed for variations in the signal transmission time due to air temperature fluctuations.

With a measurement range up to 8m and an accuracy of +/-5mm, the VEGAPULS WL S 61 covers a wide range of applications, and is particularly suitable for level and flow measurement in water treatment plants. Its excellent focusing enables its use in pumping stations and rainwater overflow basins, for flow measurement in open channels, and for level monitoring.

The sensor's robust IP68 housing is wear- and maintenance-free, it complies with the latest level probing radar (LPR) standard, and is approved for open-air use without restrictions or special attachments.

The new sensor is the first from VEGA to come with Bluetooth wireless connectivity as standard. This is particularly useful for commissioning and maintenance, which can be performed using a smartphone or tablet. Corresponding display and signal processing units enable the display of measurements and provide the relay outputs needed, for example, to control a pump.
