VEGA VEGAPULS C 23 Radar Water Level Sensor
- Measuring range up to 30m with ≤ 2mm accuracy
- Low power consumption with flexible operating voltage from 8 to 30 VDC
- Integrated Bluetooth for configuration and SDI-12 output for data logger interface
|RA - 222 2HG||VEGAPULS C 23 radar water level sensor with Bluetooth operation & SDI-12 output, 10m cable|
|AC - 222 2XT||VEGAPULS sensor mounting bracket for 1" threads, 200mm|
The VEGAPULS C 23 is the ideal radar sensor for non-contact level measurement with high accuracy requirements in all standard applications where a high degree of protection and particularly good signal focusing are required.
It is particularly suitable for level measurement in water treatment, in pumping stations and rain overflow basins, for flow measurement in narrow channels, for level monitoring in rivers and lakes and for many other environmental applications.
The sensor is suitable both for measuring liquids and for use on bulk solids silos or bulk solids containers. The device is designed for connection to data loggers with SDI-12 interface, making it particularly suitable for battery-powered applications requiring low power consumption as well as applications with one signal and supply cable for several sensors.

Enormous amounts of excess nitrogen hit water bodies all over the globe, including the U.S., due to runoff from agricultural and other human activities. This nitrogen can cause dead zones and harmful algal growth. Before it reaches the ocean, microbes can process and remove some of it from stream sediments, connected aquifers and tidal freshwater zones. Thanks to this process, coasts can have a decreased likelihood of harmful algal blooms.
Keeping coastal waters clean is important for many reasons, including the fact that about 60% of the U.S. population lives on coasts. But despite the importance of these nitrogen processes, researchers have not fully investigated how they work.Read More
The Chesapeake Bay is the site of recurring seasonal dead zones: areas of low dissolved oxygen where aquatic life struggles to survive if it can at all. In 2020, a dead zone in the Maryland portion of the bay was one of the smallest since 1985, when record keeping began. The hypoxic area in the Virginia portion of the bay was smaller and briefer than many years previous.
But the problem isn’t gone yet, and looking forward, climate change will play a big role in determining the size and severity of dead zones throughout the bay. It could make it harder to get hypoxia under control in some places.Read More
As climate change lifts the sea level in the Gulf of Mexico, it’s lifting levels of enterococci bacteria on Texas’s beaches, too.
New research out of the Gulf shows that high levels of enterococci bacteria, which come from humans and other animals and can cause disease, are correlated with proximity to large human populations and sea level rise and are increasing over time.
The research highlights an area of growing concern for public health and safety on popular recreational beaches. While sea level is projected to continue rising, it’s not a guarantee that bacteria levels will as well.Read More
