Contact-free discharge measurement for channels and open rivers using radar technology.
The RQ-30 radar sensor continuously measures the discharge of rivers and channels. The device combines two contact-free radar measurement methods to determine the surface velocity and water level. As this is a contact-free system, the measurements are not affected by any sediments or other floating refuse.
The RQ is the right choice when it comes to radar-based, contact-free discharge measurements, much due to the state of the art hydraulic model implemented in the the sensors. Why? This hydraulic model adjusts itself according to the measured water level fluctuations and is dynamically computing the relationship between surface velocity and mean flow velocity. This results in the most accurate and reliable data for radar-based, contact-free discharge measurements.
Also, the sophisticated hydraulic model installed in the RQ sensors, is the only one on the market which does not require calibration measurements. This enables the user to achieve valid measurement results right away the installation is complete.
ADMS stands for Autonomous Discharge Measurement System, a unit that includes everything you need: a water level sensor; a surface velocity sensor and discharge calculation.
Additionally, the RQ-ADMS contains a data logger with data transmission, a solar charger and batteries for autonomous, solar powered applications. Thus, the RQ-ADMS provides a complete, ready-to-use system not only for continuous monitoring but also for single measurement campaigns and emergency flood deployment.
