Radar sensor VP6X

The radar level sensor VP6X is a universal radar for continuous level measurement of liquids and bulk solids under all process conditions. Thanks to its application-orientated configuration and commissioning, it offers a safe and economical solution for all level applications. Thanks to its variable antenna systems, it guarantees maintenance-free operation in all applications. A radar sensor that makes no distinction between liquids and bulk solids.

Depending on the measuring frequency, the device emits a continuous radar signal or extremely short microwave pulses via its antenna. The emitted signal is reflected by the product and received by the antenna as an echo. The frequency difference between the emitted and received signal is proportional to the distance and depends on the fill level. The fill level determined in this way is converted into a corresponding output signal and output as a measured value.

The housings are available as single-chamber or dual-chamber versions in plastic, stainless steel or aluminium. They are available in protection classes up to IP68 (1 bar).

Area of application

The Vegapuls 6X can be used in almost all industrial sectors and applications. Selection and customisation is simple thanks to application-oriented configuration and commissioning. With VEGAPULS 6X you get a sensor that can handle any application, no matter if the medium to be measured is liquid, solid, hot, cold, hazardous or corrosive.

The small process connections offer particular advantages for liquids in small tanks or where space is limited. The very good signal focussing enables use in tanks with many installations, such as agitators and heating coils.

The device is ideal for level measurement in very high silos, large bunkers and segmented containers for bulk solids under a wide range of process conditions. Our sensor is equipped with an encapsulated plastic antenna or metal flange integrated lens antenna.
