VEGA have introduced the new VEGAPULS 6X; a radar sensor suitable for all applications.
Traditionally, the search for a suitable radar level sensor begins by asking which frequency would be best for the specific application, or by determining the properties of the medium, the temperature ranges involved and the process fittings required. VEGA is now streamlining this task, offering a ‘one-stop-shop’ solution with the VEGAPULS 6X.
“Ultimately, it’s not the sensor that counts, but what the users can achieve with it in their individual processes,” says Florian Burgert, who, as a product manager, has been closely involved in product development from the very beginning. “Just knowing that they’ve chosen the best possible measurement solution and that they’ll reach their goal faster with it makes a big difference in their everyday operations.”
The VEGAPULS 6X offers a self-diagnosis system that immediately detects damage or interference, ensuring significantly higher availability and safety. In addition to this, it has new radar-chip technology, with expanded application possibilities and simpler operation. In addition to SIL certification, the matter of cybersecurity has also been fully taken into account: Compliance with security standard IEC 62443-4-2, which specifies the strictest requirements for secure communication and access control.
The ultimate purpose of the VEGAPULS 6X is maximum simplification as it is a sensor that can handle any application. In future, customers will no longer have to worry about the technology, frequency or instrument version. Even setup and commissioning has been reduced to a minimum, now requiring just a few clicks and basic application parameters. In many cases, all application-specific settings can be made in VEGAPULS 6X before it leaves the factory.
