With its frequency of 80 GHz, the VEGAPULS 69 allows a considerably better focusing of the transmitted signal. In containers and silos with many internal obstructions, this enhanced focusing helps reduce the influence of background ‘noise’. A reliable measurement is therefore also possible, even with complex internal structures. The sensor is able to detect the smallest of reflected signals. That’s why even products, which until recently were very difficult to measure because of their poor reflective properties, such as plastic powders or wood chips, can now be measured with very high reliability. Despite the measuring range of up to 120 metres and an accuracy of ±5 mm, the sensor is also an ideal solution for small hoppers or containers.
