Non-contact discharge sensor

The non-contact system measures the discharge by RADAR technology. The unique feature of this system is the continuous capturing of flow velocity which enables an exact discharge measurement and evaluation of specific discharge situations.

In case of flood the system measures the exact discharge and because of the non-contact radar technology there is no damage of the measurement system by bed loads or trees. If the floodplains get flooded the discharge is determined by combining several sensors to one system. The system measures from very low water depth up to the maximum possible discharge of a 100-year flood or even greater. To measure any discharge situation at rivers, torrents, creeks, mountain torrents or open channels this system is unique and reliable.
