Surface Flow Velocity Radar
Non contact measurement of water’s speed and data analysis with Smartyplanet
Surface velocity radar is the ideal solution for non-contact measurements of the surface velocity of the flow.
Its technology allows a quick and simple installation of the sensor on the water surface and requires minimal maintenance. It can be installed in rivers, canals or pipes.
Radars are rugged and durable as they are designed to withstand adverse weather conditions.
It is integrated by an inclination sensor and automatic compensation of this one that allows to obtain the speed of the current.
The radar is designed to work in two modes.
In regular mode it provides speed readings in open channels of 20 times per second whereas if the low power mode is activated the radar only takes readings once per second, better managing the autonomy of the battery without affecting the accuracy of the readings .
The radar sensor is certified to European and American standards. It is currently installed all over the world.
The data measured by surface speed radar are recorded and analyzed by the Smartyplanet web platform thanks to its full compatibility.
