Measuring principle
1 Measuring principle
Measuring principle VEGAPULS 67, SR 68, 68
Extremely short microwave pulses are emitted by the antenna system in
the direction of the measured product, reflected by the product surface
and received back again by the antenna system. They propagate at
the speed of light. The time from emission to reception of the signals is
proportional to the level in the vessel.
A special time stretching procedure allows reliable and precise measurement of the extremely short times.
The VEGAPULS 67, SR 68, 68 radar sensors work with low emitted
power in the K-band frequency range.
Measuring principle VEGAPULS 69
The instrument emits a continuous radar signal via its lens-shaped
antenna. This signal is frequency modulated with a sawtooth form. The
emitted signal is reflected by the medium and received by the antenna as
echo.
The frequency of the received signal always deviates from the actual
emitted frequency. The frequency difference is calculated by special
algorithms in the sensor electronics. It is proportional to the level in the
vessel.
The VEGAPULS 69 operates with low emitted power in the W-band
frequency range.
Optimized for bulk solids
Due to the very good signal focussing, internal silo installations or
buildup on the vessel wall do not influence the measurement. A high
sensitivity electronics adapted to the requirements of bulk solids measurement enables reliable level measurement of different products up to
120 m. The measuring principle is unaffected by strong dust generation,
filling noise, air flow due to pneumatic filling and temperature fluctuations.
Advantages
Non-contact radar technology is characterized by extremely high accuracy. The measurement is influenced neither by fluctuating product features
nor by changing process conditions such as temperature, pressure or
strong dust generation. The user-friendly adjustment without vessel filling
and emptying saves time.
Input variable
The measured variable is the distance between the process fitting of the
sensor and the product surface. The reference plane is the seal surface
of the flange.

Mounting examples
The following illustrations show mounting examples and measurement
setups.
Plastic granules
non-contact measurement with ultrasonics is virtually impossible. The
VEGAPULS SR 68 is the ideal solution since microwaves are unaffected
by dust generation and the filling stream.
The VEGAPULS SR 68 radar sensor is the ideal measuring instrument
for this application. With a swivelling holder it can be optimally aligned to
the product surface.
Clinker silo
Fig. 18: Level measurement in a clinker silo with VEGAPULS 68
Fig. 16: Level measurement in a plastic granules silo with VEGAPULS 67
Plastic granules and powder are often stored in high, narrow silos which
are filled pneumatically. Typical conditions are filling noise, material cones
and poor reflective properties.
The high sensitivity of the VEGAPULS 67 sensor guarantees ample
performance reserves for reliable level measurement even with widely
varying product surface geometries.
Clinker is an additive for concrete and is stored in large silos or bunkers.
Its abrasive properties as well as extreme dust generation during filling
place heavy demands on the level measurement.
The VEGAPULS 68 sensor is the optimum solution for level measurement. Its parabolic antenna powerfully focuses the microwaves, thus
generating a strong useful signal. Interference from struts or installations
is excluded.

The interface converter VEGACONNECT is required for connection of
the PC. The converter is placed on the sensor instead of the display and
adjustment module and connected to the USB interface of the PC.

12.3 Adjustment carried out at position remote from
the measuring point - wired
Via external display and adjustment units
For this, the external display and adjustment units VEGADIS 81 and 82
are available. The adjustment is carried out via the keys of the built-in
display and adjustment module.
The VEGADIS 81 is mounted at a distance of 50 m from the sensor and
directly to the sensor electronics. VEGADIS 82 is looped directly into the
signal cable at any point.

Field Communicator 375, 475
Device descriptions for the instrument are available as EDD for parameter adjustment with the Field Communicator 375 or 475.

Integrating the EDD into the Field Communicator 375 or 475 requires the
"Easy Upgrade Utility" software, which is available from the manufacturer.
This software is updated via the Internet and new EDDs are automatically accepted into the device catalogue of this software after they are
released by the manufacturer. They can then be transferred to a Field
Communicator.

As an option, the radio module PLICSMOBILE can be mounted into a
plics® sensor with double chamber housing. It is used for transmission of
measured values and for remote parameter adjustment of the sensor.
