PCN Europe handed out its annual award on th industrial trade show Hannover Messe. This year the winner is the company VEGA, they receive the award for the new generation of their Vegapuls radar sensors.
The PCN award is given every year to an outstanding product for the processing industries. It is awarded to a product that shows an innovative solution to problems typical to the processing industries. An important requirement is furthermore a high reader interest and the international orientation of the maufacturer. Through the extension of the temperature range to 450 °C and the higher chemical resistance of the antennas, the new generation of the Vegapul radar sensors has a much wider application spectrum. Ultrafast microprocessors provide more power for signal analysis and enable complex processing algorithms.
Modern electronic components allow a never-before realised signal evaluation and a better differentiation between product level and vessel installations. The sensors belong to the plics plus instrument generation, allowing for simplification and standardisation of measurement technology for the user.
