The VEGAPULS 69
operates with a transmission frequency of approximately 80 GHz and an antenna site of 75 mm. This achieves an opening angle of only 4°. In a radar sensor with 26 GHz transmission frequency the opening angle is about 10° with the same antenna size. The 80 GHz beam misses installations or deposits on the vessel wall and makes the measurement more accurate and reliable.
Higher dynamic response
Because of the large dynamic range of 120 dB of the new VEGAPULS 69
, even the smallest of reflections can be measured. Media with poor reflection properties such as plastic powders, fly ash or dry sawdust can be measured with a much higher quality by the new technology. With the possibility of measuring smaller and smaller reflection signals, even polystyrene pellets or aerosil applications are possible.
Large measuring range
Thanks to the good focusing and the high dynamic range, the VEGAPULS 69
can reliably measure poorly reflecting bulk materials even at a distance of 120 m. The system is designed so that the sensor also operates with the same values in the smallest measuring ranges. The cycle time of the new VEGAPULS 69
is below one second with an accuracy of ±5 mm.
