VEGA Controls SA (Pty) Ltd VEGAPULS 64 product launch took place on Friday 15th of July 2016 in the ballroom at Montecasino, Johannesburg. John Groom, Group Director, used the allegory of a Black Forest Cake recipe to explain the features of the NEW VEGAPULS 64 to the audience of approximately 400 guests.
John Groom and Business Development Manager Frikkie Streicher presented the abilities of the VEGAPULS 64, the first radar-level sensor for liquids that operates at a transmission frequency of 80 GHz. This included among things a demonstration of the radar beam’s excellent focusing.
John Groom and Frikkie Streicher explained that with an 80 mm antenna, the VEGAPULS 64 emits a radar beam angle of only 3°. This means the sensor delivers reliable measurements even in vessels with internal installations such as heating coils and agitators. The demonstration included that of the dielectric constant in relation to the volume of oil in a recipe. The dynamic range of the VEGAPULS 64 was also demonstrated – where it has increased from 96 dB to 120 dB thus increasing sensitivity.
All in all, the audience learned how the VEGAPULS 64 is revolutionizing the liquid level market for measurement across multiple industries.
