Wave, Sea Level and Air Gap sensor

A third generation, non-invasive, highly stable system for the measurement of Waves, Sea Level and Air Gap in the offshore environment.

  • Safety status monitoring
  • Sea state assessment for operations
  • Structural monitoring (inc. Air Gap)
  • Input to Met-Ocean systems
  • Weather forecasting
  • Water level monitoring

Microwave radar is a perfect medium for the extreme demands of the harsh offshore environment. Sampled at high frequency, the radar pulses provide an exceptionally stable and accurate measurement of sea surface profile. The high level of achievable and stable accuracy makes WaveRadar the ideal tool for Sea Level, Air-Gap and Wave data acquisition.

The downward looking non-contact sensor uses a microwave radar technique to measure distance to the sea surface. The microwave signals are very low in power and present no safety hazard. Acquired distance measurements are continuously collected and processed for output to a data bus. Output values can be displayed and stored to industry standards on a remote PC or may be interfaced to multi-parameter environmental monitoring systems.

WaveView software

WaveView software is an optional processing and display programme which enables users to derive wave parameters, sea level and air gap data.

WaveRadar Rex provides digital (RS232) and analogue (current loop) outputs as standard with either AC (M) or DC (D) power options. The sensor is BASEEFA03ATEX, Underwriters Laboratory EEx and International Electrotechnical Commission (IECEx) certified for use in hazardous zones.
