Observator 100 years


The WaveGuide is an highly accurate wave radar. It has proven itself for over 25 years. This easy to use, reliable and robust sensor is particularly suited for the extreme conditions offshore.

The WaveGuide radar measures the distance to the water surface 10 times per second. Proven is that in all wind and wave conditions the standard deviation for water level is only 1 cm. The radar technology is based on Honeywell Enraf core technology, used for tank gauging. 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 the long-term stable zero reference. The system is compact, robust and easy to install. It is suited to accurately measure wave heights and tides, up to the most extreme conditions.

The radar comes in two versions: the Compact version and the ATEX certified version.

The system is based on a low power processor, does not have any moving parts and can synchronise to UTC-time. Data can be distributed via ethernet. The user can configure the data sets (raw data, spectra, parameters) using the subscription interface. Radio, gsm, gprs and satellite modems are supported. Raw data, spectra and parameters can be requested and are presented within the web-browser.
