Ultrasonic level sensor VS-S62

The Ultrasonic level sensor VS-S62 is a sensor designed for continuous level measurement of liquids and bulk solids. The sensor can measure liquids up to a distance of 8 metres and bulk solids up to 3.5 metres. It is always mounted at the top of the container. As an ultrasonic sensor, the Vegason S62 emits ultrasonic pulses that are reflected by the medium. The time from transmission to reception of the signals is proportional to the fill level in the tank. The measurement is independent of the density, turbidity, conductivity or dielectric constant of the liquid. This makes the sensor versatile. The sensor offers protection classes such as IP66/IP67, which makes it suitable for use in demanding environments. Our level sensor can be adjusted with PLICSCOM, a HART handheld or a PC (not included). These features make the sensor a flexible and reliable instrument for level measurement in various applications and industries.

Area of application

The Ultrasonic level sensor VS-S62 is an ultrasonic sensor for continuous level measurement of liquids or bulk solids. Typical applications are the measurement of liquids in storage tanks or open basins. The sensor is also suitable for the detection of bulk solids in small vessels or silos. The sensor can be used in all industries. The non-contact measuring principle is independent of product features and allows a setup without medium.

For this instrument, new radar sensors with connection housing VEGAPULS 11, 21 or 31, or radar sensors with fixed connected cable VEGAPULS C 11, C 21, C 22 or C 23 are available as alternative.
