Application area
3.2 Principle of operation
VEGAPULS 64 is a radar sensor for continuous level measurement of
liquids.
The small process fittings offer particular advantages in small tanks or
tight mounting spaces. The very good signal focusing ensures the use
in vessels with many installations such as stirrers and heating spirals.
The VEGAPULS 64 is available with different antenna systems:
1
2
3
Fig. 2: Antenna systems VEGAPULS 64
1 Thread with integrated horn antenna
2 Plastic horn antenna
3 Flange with encapsulated antenna system
Functional principle
The frequency of the received signal always deviates from the actual
emitting frequency. The frequency difference is proportional to the
distance and thus to the filling height. This difference is calculated
via special algorithms in the sensor electronics. The determined fill-
12
VEGAPULS 64 • 4 … 20 mA/HART - two-wire
51141-EN-180115
The instrument emits a continuous radar signal through its antenna.
This signal is frequency modulated in the form of a sawtooth wave.
The emitted signal is reflected by the medium and received by the
antenna as an echo.
3 Product description
ing height is then converted into a corresponding output signal and
outputted as the measured value.

Optionally, the instrument is available with a Second Line of Defense
(SLOD), a second process separation. It is located as gas-tight
leadthrough between the process component and the electronics.
This means additional safety against penetration of the medium fron
the process into the instrument.

Mounting strap
4.2 Mounting versions, plastic horn antenna
The optional mounting strap allows simple mounting of the instrument
on a wall, ceiling or boom. Especially in the case of open vessels, this
is a simple and effective way to align the sensor to the surface of the
bulk solid material.
The following versions are available:
•
•
Mounting strap - Ceiling

Length 300 mm
Length 170 mm
The instrument is normally mounted vertically with a bracket on the
ceiling.
This allows swivelling the sensor up to 180° for optimal orientation
and rotating for optimal connection.

Combi compression flange
The combi compression flange is suitable for different vessel flanges
DN 80, ASME 3" and JIS 80. It comes not sealed against the radar
sensor and can thus only be used unpressurized. It can be retrofitted
on instruments with single chamber housing, retrofitting to a double
chamber housing is not possible.

4 Mounting
Polarisation
4.4 Mounting instructions
Radar sensors for level measurement emit electromagnetic waves.
The polarization is the direction of the electrical component of these
waves.
The polarization direction is marked by a nose on the housing, see
following drawing:
1
Fig. 9: Position of the polarisation
1 Nose for marking the direction of polarisation
Note:
When the housing is rotated, the direction of polarization changes
and hence the influence of the false echo on the measured value.
Please keep this in mind when mounting or making changes later.
Installation position
When mounting the sensor, keep a distance of at least 200 mm
(7.874 in) from the vessel wall. If the sensor is installed in the center
of dished or round vessel tops, multiple echoes can arise. However,
these can be suppressed by an appropriate adjustment (see chapter
"Setup").
If you cannot maintain this distance, you should carry out a false
signal suppression during setup. This applies particularly if buildup on
the vessel wall is expected. In such cases, we recommend repeating
the false signal suppression at a later date with existing buildup.

In vessels with conical bottom it can be advantageous to mount the
sensor in the centre of the vessel, as measurement is then possible
down to the bottom.

of the antenna. The min./max. adjustment, however, begins at the
reference plane. The reference plane is different depending on the
sensor version.

After a certain time under the effect of large temperature changes,
PTFE plated flanges tend to lose their pre-tensioning. To compensate
for this, disc springs from the scope of delivery (instrument) must be
used with the flange screws.
To seal effectively, the following requirements must be fulfilled:
1. Make sure the number of flange screws corresponds to the number of flange holes
2. Use of disc springs as previously described

Mounting in the vessel
insulation
Instruments for a temperature range up to 200 °C have a spacer
for temperature decoupling between process fitting and electronics
housing.
Note:
The spacer may only be incorporated up to a maximum of 40 mm into
the vessel insulation. Only then is a reliable temperature decoupling
guaranteed.

Vessel installations
The mounting location of the radar sensor should be a place where no
other equipment or fixtures cross the path of the radar signals.
Vessel installations, such as e.g. ladders, limit switches, heating spirals, struts, etc., can cause false echoes and impair the useful echo.
Make sure when planning your measuring point that the radar sensor
has a "clear view" to the measured product.
In case of existing vessel installations, a false signal suppression
should be carried out during setup.
If large vessel installations such as struts or supports cause false
echoes, these can be attenuated through supplementary measures.
Small, inclined sheet metal baffles above the installations scatter the
radar signals and prevent direct interfering reflections.
Fig. 22: Cover flat, large-area profiles with deflectors
Sensor orientation
In liquids, direct the sensor as perpendicular as possible to the product surface to achieve optimum measurement results.

Fig. 23: Alignment in liquids
Agitators
If there are agitators in the vessel, a false signal suppression should
be carried out with the agitators in motion. This ensures that the
interfering reflections from the agitators are saved with the blades in
different positions.
Fig. 24: Agitators
Foam generation
Through the action of filling, stirring and other processes in the vessel,
compact foams which considerably damp the emitted signals may
form on the product surface.
If foams lead to measurement errors, you should use the biggest possible radar antennas or sensors with guided microwave.

Safety instructions
5.1 Preparing the connection
Always keep in mind the following safety instructions:
Warning:
Connect only in the complete absence of line voltage.
•
•
Voltage supply
The electrical connection must only be carried out by trained
personnel authorised by the plant operator.
If overvoltage surges are expected, overvoltage arresters should
be installed.
Power supply and current signal are carried on the same two-wire
cable. The operating voltage can differ depending on the instrument
version.
The data for power supply are specified in chapter "Technical data".
Provide a reliable separation between the supply circuit and the
mains circuits according to DIN EN 61140 VDE 0140-1.
Power the instrument via an energy-limited circuit acc. to IEC 610101, e.g. via Class 2 power supply unit.
Keep in mind the following additional factors that influence the operating voltage:
•
•
Connection cable
Lower output voltage of the power supply unit under nominal load
(e.g. with a sensor current of 20.5 mA or 22 mA in case of fault)
Influence of additional instruments in the circuit (see load values in
chapter "Technical data")
The instrument is connected with standard two-wire cable without
screen. If electromagnetic interference is expected which is above the
test values of EN 61326-1 for industrial areas, screened cable should
be used.
Make sure that the cable used has the required temperature resistance and fire safety for max. occurring ambient temperature
Use cable with round cross section for instruments with housing and
cable gland. To ensure the seal effect of the cable gland (IP protection
rating), find out which cable outer diameter the cable gland is suitable
for.
Use a cable gland fitting the cable diameter.
Screened cable generally necessary in HART multidrop mode.
Cable glands
You have to remove these plugs before electrical connection.
NPT thread
In the case of instrument housings with self-sealing NPT threads, it is
not possible to have the cable entries screwed in at the factory. The

plugs as transport protection.
5 Connecting to power supply
free openings for the cable glands are therefore covered with red dust
protection caps as transport protection.
Prior to setup you have to replace these protective caps with approved cable glands or close the openings with suitable blind plugs.
On plastic housings, the NPT cable gland or the Conduit steel tube
must be screwed into the threaded insert without grease.
Max. torque for all housings, see chapter "Technical data".
Cable screening and
grounding
If screened cable is required, the cable screen must be connected on
both ends to ground potential. In the sensor, the screen is connected
directly to the internal ground terminal. The ground terminal on the
outside of the housing must be connected to the ground potential (low
impedance).
In Ex systems, the grounding is carried out according to the installation regulations.
In electroplating plants as well as plants for cathodic corrosion protection it must be taken into account that significant potential differences
exist. This can lead to unacceptably high currents in the cable screen
if it is grounded at both ends.
Information:
The metallic parts of the instrument (process fitting, sensor, concentric tube, etc.) are connected with the internal and external ground
terminal on the housing. This connection exists either directly via
the conductive metallic parts or, in case of instruments with external
electronics, via the screen of the special connection cable.
You can find specifications on the potential connections inside the
instrument in chapter "Technical data".
Connection technology
5.2Connecting
The voltage supply and signal output are connected via the springloaded terminals in the housing.
Connection to the display and adjustment module or to the interface
adapter is carried out via contact pins in the housing.
Information:
The terminal block is pluggable and can be removed from the
electronics. To do this, lift the terminal block with a small screwdriver
and pull it out. When reinserting the terminal block, you should hear it
snap in.
51141-EN-180115
Connection procedure
Proceed as follows:
1. Unscrew the housing lid
2. If a display and adjustment module is installed, remove it by turning it slightly to the left
3. Loosen compression nut of the cable gland and remove blind
plug
4. Remove approx. 10 cm (4 in) of the cable mantle, strip approx.

the terminal opening is then free. When the screwdriver is released,
the terminal closes again.
You can find further information on the max. wire cross-section under
"Technical data - Electromechanical data".
7. Check the hold of the wires in the terminals by lightly pulling on
them
8. Connect the screen to the internal ground terminal, connect the
external ground terminal to potential equalisation
9. Tighten the compression nut of the cable entry gland. The seal

51141-EN-180115
Caution:
If liquids with different dielectric constants separate in the vessel, for
example through condensation, the radar sensor can detect under
certain circumstances only the medium with the higher dielectric
constant. Keep in mind that layer interfaces can cause faulty measurements.
6 Set up with the display and adjustment module
Setup - Adjustment
Since the radar sensor is a distance measuring instrument, it is the
distance from the sensor to the product surface that is measured. To
indicate the actual level, the measured distance must be assigned to
a certain height percentage.
To perform the adjustment, enter the distance with full and empty vessel, see the following example:
3
2
5m
(196.9")
0,5 m
(19.68")
100%
0%

Fig. 37: Parameterisation example, Min./max. adjustment
1 Min. level = max. measuring distance
2 Max. level = min. measuring distance
3 Reference plane
If these values are not known, an adjustment with the distances of e.g.
10 % and 90 % is possible. Starting point for these distance specifications is always the sealing surface of the thread or flange. You can find
specifications on the reference plane in chapter "Technical data". The
actual level is calculated on the basis of these settings.
The actual product level during this adjustment is not important,
because the min./max. adjustment is always carried out without
changing the product level. These settings can be made ahead of
time without the instrument having to be installed.

signal suppression
influence the measurement:
•
•
•
•
High mounting sockets
Vessel internals such as struts
Agitators
Buildup or welded joints on vessel walls
Note:
A false signal suppression detects, marks and saves these false
signals to ensure that they are ignored in the level measurement.
This should be done with the lowest possible level so that all potential
interfering reflections can be detected.
Proceed as follows:
51141-EN-180115
1. Select with [->] the menu item "False signal suppression" and
confirm with [OK].
VEGAPULS 64 • 4 … 20 mA/HART - two-wire
53
6 Set up with the display and adjustment module
2. Confirm 3-times with [OK] and enter the actual distance from the
sensor to the product surface.
3. All interfering signals in this range are detected by the sensor and
stored after being confirmed with [OK].
4. All interfering signals in this range are detected by the sensor and
stored after being confirmed with [OK].
Note:
Check the distance to the product surface, because if an incorrect
(too large) value is entered, the existing level will be saved as a false
signal. The level would then no longer be detectable in this area.
If a false signal suppression has already been saved in the sensor,
the following menu window appears when selecting "False signal
suppression":
Delete: An already created false signal suppression will be completely deleted. This is useful if the saved false signal suppression no
longer matches the metrological conditions in the vessel.
Extend: is used to extend an already created false signal suppression. This is useful if a false signal suppression was carried out with
too high a level and not all false signals could be detected. When
selecting "Extend", the distance to the product surface of the created
false signal suppression is displayed. This value can now be changed
and the false signal suppression can be extended to this range.
A linearization is necessary for all vessels in which the vessel volume
does not increase linearly with the level. Corresponding linearization
curves are preprogrammed for these vessels. They represent the
correlation between the level percentage and vessel volume. The
linearization applies to the measured value indication and the current
output.
Additional adjustments HART mode
In this menu item you specify the HART mode and enter the address
for multidrop mode.
54
In the mode "Fixed current output" up to 63 sensors can be operated
on one two-wire cable (Multidrop operation). An address between 0

Up to 100,000 measured values can be stored in the sensor in a ring
memory. Each entry contains date/time as well as the respective
measured value. Storable values are for example:
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
•
Distance
Filling height
Percentage value
Lin. percent
Scaled
Current value
Measurement reliability
Electronics temperature
When the instrument is shipped, the measured value memory is
active and stores distance, measurement reliability and electronics
temperature every 3 minutes.
The requested values and recording conditions are set via a PC with
PACTware/DTM or the control system with EDD. Data are thus read
out and also reset.

sensor (non-deletable). Each entry contains date/time, event type,
event description and value. Event types are for example:
9 Diagnosis, asset management and service
The data are read out via a PC with PACTware/DTM or the control
system with EDD.
Echo curve memory
The echo curves are stored with date and time and the corresponding
echo data. The memory is divided into two sections:
Echo curve of the setup: This is used as reference echo curve for
the measurement conditions during setup. Changes in the measurement conditions during operation or buildup on the sensor can thus
be recognized. The echo curve of the setup is stored via:
•
•
•
PC with PACTware/DTM
Control system with EDD
Display and adjustment module
•
•

Further echo curves: Up to 10 echo curves can be stored in a ring
buffer in this memory section. Additional echo curves are stored via:
9.3 Asset Management function
The instrument features self-monitoring and diagnostics according to
NE 107 and VDI/VDE 2650. In addition to the status messages in the
following tables, detailed error messages are available under menu
item "Diagnostics" via the display and adjustment module, PACTware/
DTM and EDD.

This status message is inactive by default. It can be activated by the
user via PACTware/DTM or EDD.
Out of specification: The measured value is unreliable because an
instrument specification was exceeded (e.g. electronics temperature).
This status message is inactive by default. It can be activated by the
user via PACTware/DTM or EDD.
Maintenance: Due to external influences, the instrument function
is limited. The measurement is affected, but the measured value is
still valid. Plan in maintenance for the instrument because a failure is
expected in the near future (e.g. due to buildup).
This status message is inactive by default. It can be activated by the
user via PACTware/DTM or EDD.

9.4 Rectify faults
Reaction when malfunction occurs
The operator of the system is responsible for taking suitable measures to rectify faults.
Procedure for fault rectification
The first measures are:
Evaluation of fault messages via the adjustment device
Checking the output signal
Treatment of measurement errors
Further comprehensive diagnostics options are available with a PC
with PACTware and the suitable DTM. In many cases, the reasons can
be determined in this way and faults rectified.

Notes:
• Wherever the sensor displays a constant value, the reason could
also be the fault setting of the current output to "Hold value"
• If the level indication is too low, the reason could be a line resistance that is too high

9.5 Exchanging the electronics module
If the electronics module is defective, it can be replaced by the user.
In Ex applications, only instruments and electronics modules with appropriate Ex approval may be used.
If there is no electronics module available on site, the electronics
module can be ordered through the agency serving you. The electronics modules are adapted to the respective sensor and differ in signal
output or voltage supply.
The new electronics module must be loaded with the default settings
of the sensor. These are the options:
•
•
In the factory
Or on site by the user
In both cases, the serial number of the sensor is needed. The serial
numbers are stated on the type label of the instrument, on the inside
of the housing as well as on the delivery note.
When loading on site, the order data must first be downloaded from
the Internet (see operating instructions manual "Electronics module").
Caution:
All application-specific settings must be entered again. That's why you
have to carry out a fresh setup after exchanging the electronics.
9.6 Software update
The following components are required to update the instrument
software:
68
VEGAPULS 64 • 4 … 20 mA/HART - two-wire
