VEGA – Level and pressure instrumentation for the process industry
VEGA Grieshaber KG is a global manufacturer of process instrumentation. Its product portfolio includes sensors for measurement of level, point level,pressure as well as equipment and software for integration into process control systems.
Production processes are becoming ever more complex. So it is really important that the measurement technology used to control and monitor the processes is all the more understandable and intuitive. VEGA has set itself the goal of developing innovative measurement technology that is easy to install and operate and offers maximum safety and reliability. This commitment to innovation is apparent in VEGA’s latest product, the world’s first 80 GHz radar sensor for liquid level measurement. The sensor’s superior signal focusing allows for measurement in vessels crowded with agitators, baffles, and other internal obstructions, and it’s compact design and process fittings make it ideal for use on small tanks. Messy conditions, condensation, and buildup are no issue for the radar sensor; it is equipped with the latest software to filter out interference.
Leading the way in the worldwide trend towards “intelligent factories”, VEGA’s instrument platform plics® offers a standardized adjustment concept that encompasses all measuring principles.
VEGA makes measurement technology easy. Handling measurement technology always means responsibility.It is good to know that VEGA is constantly working to make both instrument configuration and adjustment even more simple. That is because simpler and easier to use is also more reliable: reducing the probability of mistakes and increasing functional reliability.
As industry needs and expectations evolve, VEGA aims to provide cutting-edge solutions that deliver tangible results. For example, it recently released aversion of its Plics com display module that features Bluetooth technology for wireless setup and adjustment of sensors. Accessing operational data from smartphones, laptops, and tablets keeps operators informed about their process and safe from inaccessible display units, inclement weather, and other common hazards. This useful solution is another example of how VEGA is looking forward.
VEGA employs over 1,200 people worldwide, 600 of whom work at its headquarters in Schiltach in the Black Forest, Germany. This is where, for over 50 years now,solutions to demanding measuring tasks are being conceived and brought to realization: for chemical and pharmaceutical plants, the food industry,drinking water supply systems, sewage treatment plants, landfills, mining, power generation, oil platforms, ships and airplanes.
VEGA is active in over 80 countries with its globe-spanning network of subsidiaries and distributors.The company and its products have all the necessary certificates and approvals for worldwide application. This applies to the technical safety as well as the quality of the products and services.
