VEGAPULS C Series™ | Wired Radar Sensor
The VEGAPULS C Series wired sensors are non-contact, continuous level radar sensors with high protection.
The VEGAPULS C Series wired sensors are non-contact, continuous level radar sensors. This sensor line excels at simple measuring tasks, such as tank level and fuel tank level monitoring, wastewater and water treatment, pump stations, and rain overflow basins. The VEGAPULS C Series is best used in any outdoor level monitoring application that requires a a rugged sensor.
- Exact measurement results independent of medium, process and environmental conditions
- Low-cost radar sensor for simple measurement tasks
- Maintenance-free operation due to non-contact 80 GHz radar technology
Tank Level Monitoring
VEGAPULS sensors are easy to install and operate, and work well in the water/wastewater supply network. These sensors measure the level and pressure accurately and reliably in containers, pipes, filters and reservoirs.
Level measurement in the pure water tank
Non-contact level measurement with radar in the water storage basin. External display and adjustment unit for 4-20 mA/HART sensors.
Sewage plants around the world rely on VEGA measurement technology for their maintenance-free operation and accurate measurement data.
Flow-rate measurement in open channels
The radar sensor measures the flow rate continuously under all weather conditions.
Fuel Tank Level Monitoring
From airports to water treatment plants, businesses can rely on VEGA measurement technology for fuel level monitoring. They are low maintenance and provide high accuracy readings, making them a reliable solution for fast-paced applications.
Non-Contact Fuel Level Monitoring
Measure fuel levels continuously in many different fuel tank sizes and shapes.

Frequently Asked Questions
Radar level sensors emit microwaves signals that are reflected back to the sensor by the target surface. The sensor measures the time of flight and calculates a distance from the sensor face. This is then converted to a level measurement based on how the sensor is scaled.
The VEGAPULS line of radar sensors are rated from ±5 mm to ±2 mm accuracy. Generally speaking, radar sensors are one of the more precise options for non-contact level measurement.
The primary difference between radar level trasmitters and ultrsonic is the type of signal they emit. Radar sensors use a microwave signal while ultrasonics use sound. Both are effective in different scenarios. Radar transmitters are generally more capable in a wider range of applications. However, ultrasonic sensors tend to be easier to work with as long as they're well suited for the application.
Radar level transmitters work well with both liquids and solids level measurement. They tend to excel in more difficult applications as they can be finely tuned to the correct surface while ignoring obstacles. However, radar sensors are still a bit more expensive than simpler technologies like ultrasonic. If your application is simple, such as cold, clean water level monitoring, consider an ultrasonic level sensor for a more cost effective solution. Contact us to discuss your specific needs.
