Radac WaveGuide 5 Height & Tide

Wave Radar Height & Tide

The new WaveGuide is the latest and most technically advanced radar from Radac. This accurate wave monitoring system is an easy to use, reliable and robust device to measure tide, wave height and wave period.
The new radar is capable of maintaining a high level of precision and accuracy in harsh environmental conditions and is particularly suited to marine and offshore installations.

Mounted high above the water and without any moving parts there is no need for preventive maintenance or cleaning. (Re-) calibration is never required due to long term stable zero reference and constant sensitivity.

The wave radar measures the distance to the water surface 10 times per second. In all wind and wave conditions the accuracy for water level is proven to be below 1 cm. The radar itself facilitates data acquisition, data

processing, data presentation and remote service. Data will be internally stored on the device and distributed over the network. Any device connected to the (private) network can access the web-based user interface.
