Level transmitter

Level transmitter for continuous level measurement

In continuous level measurement, a level transmitter detects the level of a medium in a tank or silo and converts it into an electronic signal. The level signal is either displayed directly on site or incorporated into a process control or management system.


Level transmitter for point level detection

In point level detection a level transmitter detects when a certain predefined level is reached. Such a device is employed when it is not necessary to measure every possible intermediate level, as is the case with continuous level measurement. A switching command starts or stops filling equipment such as conveyors or pumps. Level switches outputting a binary signal can be integrated into a process control system.


Application areas of the level transmitters

Typical applications for level transmitters are process tanks, storage tanks or silos in the process industry. The measured media are liquids, pastes, powders or bulk solids. The different industries place very specific requirements on the measurement technology they use. Taking the properties of the medium as well as the individual process conditions into consideration, VEGA provides a level transmitter perfectly adapted to each measuring point.
