VEGAPULS WL 61

Radar sensor for continuous level measurement of water and wastewater

Application area

Level measurement of water and sewage

The VEGAPULS WL 61 is the ideal sensor for all applications in water and sewage water applications. It is particularly suitable for use in water processing, pump stations as well as overflow basins, for flow measurement in open flumes and gauge monitoring. The VEGAPULS WL 61 is an economical solution through versatile and simple mounting options. The flood-proof IP 68 housing ensures a maintenance-free permanent operation. Optionally with integrated Bluetooth module for wireless communication via smartphone, tablet or PC.

Your benefit

  • Exact measuring results independent of product, process and ambient conditions
  • High plant availability, because wear and maintenance-free
  • Maintenance-free operation through non-contact measuring principle
