The innovative radar sensor for non-contact discharge measurement of rivers, open channels, and canals is a reliable and accurate solution that can integrate external water level data. This feature makes it possible to upgrade existing measuring sites with additional surface velocity measurement.
One advantage of this system is its use of innovative radar technology and the ability to integrate external data such as water level and cross-section profile. This allows for more accurate and precise discharge measurement. The system also utilizes well-proven RQ radar technology, ensuring non-contact measurement, low maintenance requirements, and flood-proof operation.
The system does not require any structural work in the water, making it easy to install and operate. Additionally, the system can recognize flow direction and hysteresis effects, and can measure in tidal waters, backwater situations, and waters with high turbidity.
Another advantage of the system is its ability to measure even where weed growth prevails, ensuring accurate measurements even in challenging environments. The measuring range is 0.08 to 16 m/s, depending on flow conditions, and the system can provide analog outputs from 4 to 20 mA.
Overall, the innovative radar sensor for non-contact discharge measurement of rivers, open channels, and canals with the possibility to use and integrate external water level data is a reliable and accurate solution for river management and monitoring. Its non-contact measurement technique, ability to integrate external data, and low maintenance requirements make it a valuable tool for researchers, engineers, and other professionals involved in river management and monitoring.
