Radac Wave Monitoring Radar

WaveGuide 5 Height & Tide

Our most plug&play wave radar to accurately measure wave height, wave period and tide.
No water contact, no maintenance and severe conditions proof.

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 system is compact, robust and easy to install. It is equipped to measure wave heights and tides accurately, even in the most extreme conditions.

For wave height information, comparative studies have proven that the WaveGuide and Datawell’s Waverider perform equally well. The test shows no statistical difference in the height information from the buoy and from the WaveGuide radar.
