VEGASON 63

Ultrasonic sensor for continuous level measurement

VEGASON 63
VEGASON 63

Application area

Liquids and bulk solids in all industries

The VEGASON 63 is an ultrasonic sensor for continuous level measurement of liquids and bulk solids. Typical applications are the measurement of liquids in storage tanks and open basins. The sensor is suitable for continuous level measurement of bulk solids in small up to average-size vessels. The non-contact measuring principle is independent of product features and allows a setup without medium.

Your benefit

  • Proven measurement technology for standard applications
  • Maintenance-free operation through non-contact measuring principle
  • Reliable measurement independent of product features
