Self-contained level gauging and data transmission system
A solar panel is now available as power supply for the GSM/GPRS radio unit PLICSMOBILE T61. Powering both the radio unit and the connected plics® sensor, it creates a completely self-contained system for the transmission of measured values.
At remote locations, far from the power grid, a solar panel can now be implemented to power a complete monitoring station. PLICSMOBILE thus uses solar energy to supply the sensor and transmit data wirelessly over the mobile phone network.
To enable the best possible operation under all light and weather conditions, two different solar panels, one with 5 W and one with 20 W peak power, are available. PLICSMOBILE’s charge regulator and intelligent energy management ensure optimum utilisation of the available solar energy.
Mobile radio unit, sensor and solar panel are perfectly adapted to each other and form a completely self-contained monitoring station that delivers reliable measurement data all year round, without maintenance or any other kind of human intervention.
A typical application for PLICSMOBILE T61 with accumulator and solar panel is data transmission at level gauging stations for outdoor bodies of water or deep wells, or measuring points where regular replacement of a battery involves too much work or is too expensive because of the very short measurement update intervals required.
The visualisation software WEB-VV is the ideal tool for processing and analysing the measurement data. It enables user-friendly visualisation and data storage as well as connection to a database system.
The FIBERTRAC 31 is a radiation-based sensor for continuous measurement of liquids and bulk solids. It is suitable for level and interface measurement under extreme process conditions, in aggressive products or critical product features. The FIBERTRAC 31 delivers precise measuring results even under hardest application conditions.
PACTware is based on FDT technology and therefore offers a defined interface for the integration of field instruments, communication components, remote I/O systems and interface modules. The manufacturers of these components deliver the respective optimized DTM, which supports the hardware completely, also with respect to the graphical interface.
Despite its extensive functionality, PACTware is a simple parameterization tool for setup and diagnosis of field instruments.
The differential pressure transmitter VEGADIF 65 can be used universally for the measurement of liquids, gases and vapours. Typical applications are level measurements in pressurized vessels as well as flow measurements in combination with DP flow elements.

VEGAPULS SR 68 is VEGA’s new radar sensor for continuous measurement of bulk solids. It is especially suitable for level measurement in silos and bunkers with heights up to 30 metres.
VEGA is well known for its innovative level measurement technology and pragmatic solutions that offer the user many practical benefits. When the wish for a reliable level sensor for measuring ranges up to 30 m arose, the company reacted quickly. Its tried and true radar technology was adapted once again to the requirements of users – a new sensor optimally covering applications in medium-height silos was the result.
With its 30 metre measuring range, VEGAPULS SR 68 is ideally suited for a wide variety of bulk solids applications and offers the user all the advantages of radar technology at an interesting price. Uninfluenced by dust, noise and strong air currents during filling, the sensor reliably detects the level and contributes to profitable plant operation. Since even the weakest radar reflections from the surface of the bulk solid material can be detected, the sensor is employed in a broad range of applications. From plastic granulate to grain to coal – with VEGAPULS SR 68, reliable level measurement of any medium is guaranteed and fast product changes can be carried out easily without a fresh adjustment.
The flexible sensor concept allows individual adaptation to the respective requirements of the measuring point. Antenna covers are available for dust protection and rinsing connections for keeping the sensors free of sticky bulk material. Different antenna systems with process separators of plastic and ceramic make application possible in environments over +250 °C and give the user the necessary measuring certainty for smooth operation of his production systems.
Reliable raw materials supply via WEB-VV
The stocking and transport of raw materials are often the biggest cost factor for a company. When the supplier looks after the customer’s raw materials inventory (Vendor Managed Inventory – VMI), both parties benefit from the close dovetailing of their processes. VEGA supports the business model VMI with sensors for level measurement, various options for wired and wireless data transmission and a platform for making all inventory data available, the Internet portal WEB-VV.
VEGA delivers optimal sensors for level measurement of any kind of liquid or bulk solid. The measurement data are made available by signal conditioning instruments on site or by telecommunication via standard interfaces (Ethernet, Modem, GSM, GPRS). This has advantages for both sides. The plant operator always has access to the critical data he needs for production control. The supplier, on the other hand, can retrieve inventory data regularly from a distant location and fill up stocks when required.
WEB-VV is a user-friendly inventory visualisation and data storage system that is just as suitable for company networks as it is for worldwide measurement data logging. The data collected by WEB-VV are made available as charts, bar graphs and history diagrams. Inventory levels are actively monitored and transmitted in time or event controlled reports via e-mail or SMS. Integrating WEB-VV into planning and control systems is simple because it provides, along with the WEB services, a standardized interface to user programs and ERP systems such as SAP.
The Internet portal WEB-VV is being used in numerous companies at over one hundred locations worldwide. The applications are running successfully in flour mills, water works and tank farms. The business model can be applied to many other application areas as well, e.g. in the food, building materials, petrochemical, environmental and recycling industries.
VMI saves both suppliers and customers work and overhead in their supply chain, e.g. through precise monitoring and control of delivery vehicles, storage capacities and production processes.
