Product description:

The VEGAPULS 69 is a sensor for continuous measurement of bulk solids under different process conditions. It is ideal for level measurement in very high silos, large bunkers and segmented vessels. Thanks to the very good signal focussing a simple setup and reliable measurement is ensured. The VEGAPULS 69 can be equipped with an encapsulated plastic antenna or a lens antenna integrated in the metal flange. This enables the optimum adaption to different application areas.


With its high frequency of 80 GHz, the radar sensor VEGAPULS 69 can measure practically any kind of bulk solid material: Fine powders, ash, dried sewage sludge, cullet, granulates and coarse bulk solids – even in a dusty atmosphere. The radar sensor scores big with its wide measuring range and accuracy in large or small applications: in bunkers, containers, silos. Even internal installations have no effect on the measuring result. The non-contact radar sensor is ideal for use in diverse sectors, such as building materials, rocks, aggregates and cement, as well as for use in the chemical industry, in wastewater management and in recycling.

- Accuracy < +/- 5mm
- Adjustment with PLICSCOM, Field Communicator or PC
- Instrument from the plics® family
