Visible efficiency for process automation : VEGA extends its level and pressure device portfolio

New compact VEGABAR pressure sensors and VEGAPOINT level switches mean VEGA is now a full-range process automation level and pressure supplier. These new lower-priced instruments are designed for standard applications – in line with the latest industry demands.

New standard sensors with a focus on hygiene

In many basic process areas, simple, cost-effective automation sensors for efficiency improvements are often the key requirement. To meet this, VEGA has introduced a new compact level and pressure instrument series, designed to be simple and highly efficient – without sacrificing dependability, hygiene or accuracy.

Standardisation gives birth to efficiency

A hygienic universal adapter system can be flexibly selected and adapted according to individual needs and, if necessary, quickly exchanged between devices. It is fully compatible across these new pressure and level switches. They can also withstand intense CIP processes, and along with hygienic designs and surface finishes comply to industry approvals and standards.

Visible all around: illuminated 360° switching status display

The sensor development focused on simple use, and this includes fast and easy indication. A 360° status display means switching states can be quickly seen on the plant, an ultra-bright LED ring, has 256 freely selectable colours and the remains clearly visible, even in daylight. This immediately and efficiently shows operators both the switch and process status.

Fit for the future with IO-Link

The devices all feature IO-Link options, this enables sensor parameters to be stored and re-written to devices by the master or the controller if a sensor replacement is made, reducing set-up mistakes and reducing down time. This ensures higher product quality, more optimal utilisation of the machines and increased process speed – delivering noticeable savings.

Bluetooth for faster set-up and adjustment

All these devices, like many others in the VEGA instrument range, can be set up and monitored using Bluetooth and VEGA Tools App for Android and iOS. In environments where access is difficult, distancing is in place or the environment is inhospitable, the remote communication – even in ATEX areas – enables safer, faster and easier device operation.

Conclusion: Future-oriented automation from a single source

Hygienic design, modularisation, high availability and easy operation means greater process efficiency. Backed by decades of experience, VEGA offers ground-breaking level and pressure measurement technology for the automation and monitoring of production systems.
