VEGA ushers in a new level era with the radar sensor VEGAPULS 6X

The new radar level sensor VEGAPULS 6X is the result of 30 years of experience and over 1 million sensors used worldwide.

Choosing an instrument can be a laborious process and often involve several questions and product research. VEGA has attempted to simplify this process with the introduction of the new VEGAPULS 6X.

Florian Burgent, one of the product managers at VEGA who has been closely involved in the development from the beginning, said: “Ultimately, it’s not the sensor that counts but what the users can achieve with it in their applications. Just knowing that they’ve chosen the best possible instrument solution and that they’ll reach their goal faster with it, makes a big difference in their everyday operation.”

VEGA now offers one sensor for all applications – VEGAPULS 6X. Selecting the right frequency or determining the DK value of the medium are no longer obstacles because choosing the right sensor specifications has now been simplified. The new configurator asks for the type of application and determines which sensor version is required. The entire procedure now consists of just a few clicks. And of course, an advisory discussion with a VEGA radar specialist is recommended. In any case, the result is simplicity for users and a measurement solution that delivers results independently of the media properties, process conditions, vessel shapes and internal installations.

Four-stage, all-round protection
VEGAPULS 6X offers decisive technical innovations. It is equipped with a comprehensive safety concept. Functional safety is ensured as it conforms with the Safety Integrity Level (SIL) requirements. The certified sensor has SIL characteristics and provides the necessary operational safety to minimise risks in safety-related applications.

Another increasingly important focus is cybersecurity. In this regard, the VEGAPULS 6X conforms to IEC 61511, which fulfils the requirements for the security of system access and communication control. It thus ensures comprehensive process security, right through the control system.
