Plant tour


Interested in getting to know all about state-of-the-art measurement technology with innovative solutions for level, switching and pressure instrumentation?
Curious where VEGA sensors are produced and how it looks like in the heart of our production in Schiltach

Then, VEGA Technology Days 2022 will be your ”place to be“. We‘ve created an exciting mix of technical workshops, company insights and a lot of networking – especially for you.

We would be very happy to be your host and welcome you in the middle of the Black Forest.
Looking forward, to see you in November.

Level: Can one radar sensor really be enough?

When selecting the appropriate level measurement, the application must be the focus. The process conditions such as temperature and pressure as well as the type of medium, liquid or bulk solid, play a role.

  • Free-radiating radar, used as a non-contact measuring technique, solves many continuous level measurement problems and can be easily adapted to the application.
  • The guided microwave measures reliably in applications with particularly high pressures and in interface applications.
  • In special applications, the radiometric measuring principle is used, as it can measure the level right through the vessel wall.

Pressure: New solutions with proven technologies

Pressure sensors are widely used in plants to control and monitor processes. Whether for process  pressure measurement on pipelines, for hydrostatic level measurement on tanks or to measure differential pressure. But which pressure transmitter is the right one for your application?

  • Ceramic or metallic measuring cell – both have their advantages. But there are limitations that you should know about when looking for the right solution for a specific process. 
  • The diverse possibilities electronic differential pressure measurement offers compared to conventional differential pressure
  • A new generation of pressure switches with IO-Link for simple automation applications

Point level detection: VEGA’s versatile range of switches

Reliable level switches can often boost the efficiency of a plant considerably: in monitoring stocks, protecting against dry run or overfilling as well as serving as a cost-effective, two-point level measuring system. VEGA now offers a complete portfolio of point level measurement technology that has been extended with new measuring principles.

  • Robust, service-proven capacitive switches
  • Universal vibrating level switches for all media
  • Microwave barriers and radiometric sensors for non-contact detection
  • A new generation of level switches with IO-Link for sticky and adhesive media

Smart solutions from VEGA – How IoT and digitalisation makes life easier

In the development of Industry 4.0, many small pieces fit together to ultimately create the big picture. And VEGA is heavily involved, setting milestones in this vast mosaic:

  • Simple adjustment and diagnosis with the VEGA Tools app
  • Remote monitoring of measuring points with VEGA Inventory System
  • All-round service via myVEGA, the personalised online platform
  • New IoT sensors for remote applications, VEGAPULS Air opens up a totally new area of application for level sensors
