The VEGAFLEX 81 level sensor measures maintenance-free all kind of liquids. Even in applications with vapour, buildup, foam generation and condensation, the sensor delivers precise and reliable measured values. The VEGAFLEX 81 is the economical solution for various level and interface measurements.
Application area : With VEGAFLEX 81 you can measure all kinds of liquids essentially maintenance free. The sensor delivers precise and reliable measured values even in applications with steam, buildup, foam generation or condensation. VEGAFLEX 81 is a truly cost-effective level and interface sensor for your measuring task.
The guided adjustment enables a simple, time-saving and reliable setup
Shortenable probes offer a simple standardisation and highest flexibility in the planning
Comprehensive diagnostic possibilities ensure a maintenance-free operation and hence a high plant availability
Function : High frequency microwave pulses are coupled onto a cable or rod and guided along the probe. The pulse is reflected by the product surface. The time from emission to reception of the signals is proportional to the level in the vessel.
Cable probe up to 75 m (246.1 ft)
Rod probe up to 6 m (19.69 ft)
Version for low voltage 9.6 - 48 V DC, 20 - 42 V AC, 50/60 Hz
Version for mains voltage 90 - 253 V AC, 50/60 Hz
Materials : The wetted parts of the instrument are made of stainless steel. The instrument seal is made either of FKM, FFKM or EPDM.
Housing versions : The housings are available as double chamber version in plastic, stainless steel or Aluminium. They are available in protection class IP 66/ IP 67.
Electronics versions : The instruments are available in different electronics versions. Apart from the two-wire electronics with 4 - 20 mA/HART, a four-wire version and two purely digital versions with Profibus PA and Foundation Fieldbus are available.
Operation : The adjustment of the instrument is carried out via the optional display and adjustment module PLICSCOM or via a PC with the adjustment software PACTware and corresponding DTM. Further adjustment options are available via HART communicator as well as manufacturerspecific programs such as AMS™ or PDM.
