VEGA has announced that its radar-based system has gained MCERTS approval for open channel flow measurement.
The MCERTS scheme, overseen by the Environment Agency, ensures approved equipment is available to maintain reliable, accurate measurements by end users.
The company’s range includes the new VEGAPULS WL S 61 contactless radar level sensor which has been designed for applications in water treatment works, sewage treatment works, pumping stations, digesters, sludge tanks, open channel flow measurement and telemetry gauging stations.
The ‘S’ version is loop-powered, has 5mm accuracy, 8m range, flexible mounting options and Bluetoothset-up. Utilising a 10° focused beam angle means it meets the latest EN Level Probing Radar (LPR) standard for open-air use.
As well as being standard on the new water radar, Bluetoothcan now be supplied as an option on all VEGA level measurement technologies.
