RADAR is the Better Ultrasonic
Due to their physical measuring principle, ultrasonic sensors can be exposed to considerable influences because the running time of sound changes with, for example, temperature, solar radiation and gas composition. Heavy fog, wind or rain can additionally damp the sound waves and limit the measuring range even more.
Radar sensors, on the other hand, are not affected by temperature fluctuations, high pressures or vacuum and deliver correct readings under all environmental conditions.
VEGA new non contact radar instrument series is based on 80 GHz technology and, thanks to a newly developed microchip, represents a real alternative to ultrasonic technology in terms of price. This makes it suitable even for more price-sensitive applications, such as those found in the water and wastewater industry or in auxiliary systems in process automation.
The new compact radar sensor are be used for reliable monitoring of river levels. Its measured values are an important prerequisite for being able to react quickly and correctly during a flood event. Radar sensors monitor the river level unaffected by temperature fluctuations, such as those caused by strong solar radiation. Even at a distance of up to 30 metres from the water surface, the sensor delivers readings accurate to the millimetre.
