HyQuest Solutions’ WLR 8/15/30 is a highly accurate radar level sensor that measures the distance from the sensor to the surface. It uses advanced 80 GHz radar technology to provide accurate and stable measurements. Using contactless technology for measurement of level of fluids and solids provides many advantages over traditional methods due to simple installation, low power consumption and minimal to no maintenance.
The WLR 8/15/30 is the ideal radar sensor for hydrological, oceanographic and other environmental monitoring applications demanding contactless measurement of water levels or wave sizes. Low power consumption, multiple supported communication interfaces, and compatibility with HyQuest Solutions’ dataloggers allow users to quickly and effortlessly integrate the WLR 8/15/30 into new or existing applications.
WLR is available in 3 models that differ in the detection distance only: 8 m, 15 m or 30 m.
When compared to ultrasonic sensors for level measurement, radar technology provides advantage in precision, as the changes in air temperature which affect the quality of ultrasound measurements do not affect radar measurements.
The WLR 8/15/30 can be easily upgraded. For advanced applications, custom designed logic and detection can be programmed for specific measurement tasks and processes.
