Radar level sensor VC11

The Radar level sensor VC11 is a sensor for non-contact level measurement in applications where a high degree of protection is required.

The device emits a continuous radar signal via its antenna. This 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 level determined in this way is converted into a corresponding output signal and output as a measured value.

The housing is optimised for applications in the water/waste water sector and is made of PVDF. Protection class IP66/IP68 (3 bar) is achieved thanks to the moulded cable gland.

Area of application

VEGAPULS C 11 is the ideal radar level sensor for non-contact level measurement in simple applications where a high degree of protection is required. Wired radar sensor for continuous level measurement. It is particularly suitable for use in water treatment, pumping stations, rainwater overflow basins and level monitoring. In bulk goods, the sensors are used in small bulk goods silos or open containers.
