Vegawell 51 represents a new generation of suspension pressure transmitters. The suspension pressure transmitters are used for water/waste water applications, e.g. for hydrostatic level measurement in vessels and gauge measurement in deep wells. Mounting is accomplished by means of a straining clamp or a threaded fitting G1 A.
The actual sensor element is the small Certec measuring cell, with robust ceramic diaphragm and shielded measuring cell seal. The front-flush arrangement of the measuring cell prevents buildup and makes the instruments particularly suitable for dirtied media. The slim design (diameter only 22 mm) enables applications in sounding pipes down to 1".
The selectable measuring ranges lie between 0.1 and 10 bar, the application temperatures between -40 and 80 °C. A signal output of 4 … 20 mA is standard for voltage supply 9.6 … 36 V DC; HART signal is also available on request.
Calibration is carried out on a PC with the adjustment software PACTware or via a HART handheld. A special feature of the 4 ... 20 mA/HART version is that it also measures the product temperature with a temperature sensor type PT 100. Vegawell 51 always comes with an overvoltage arrester as well as ATEX and ship approvals.
A practical supplement to these instruments is the new breather housing Vegabox 02. It includes a high-quality ventilation filter, connection terminals as well as an op-tional temperature sensor with separate 4 ... 20 mA signal output. The appendant protective cover makes outdoor mounting possible.
