RADAC WaveGuide, Radar Wave sensor

RADAC WaveGuide, Radar Wave sensor
The WaveGuide Height & Tide accurately measures wave height and tide. 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:

RADAC WaveGuide, Directional Radar Wave sensor

RADAC WaveGuide, Directional Radar Wave sensor
With an array of three radars the elevations of the sea surface is measured at three positions. Knowing the slopes and the phase relations, the directional spectrum can be accurately calculated. Radac is the only company that brings this technology to the market. The directional system consists of three downward-pointing radars. Depending on the set-up, all are perpendicularly pointed downwards or one/two are tilted. We recommend the three-point array (1) as the optimal set-up (three downward pointing radars). In a line array (2) one radar is tilted, and in a point array (3) two radars are tilted. Wavelengths are optimally monitored with 3 to 30 times the array size. For example, if the radars are mounted five meters apart, the optimal measurements are between 15m and 150m wave length (3-10 sec period).

Radar Wave sensor – UPS and Telemetry System

Radar Wave sensor – UPS and Telemetry System
A key requirement at very remote locations is data availability and independence of both the power supply and telemetry systems. The RADAC WaveGuide is a very robust package mechanically and electrically. Data are available via an integral Ethernet port. Wind turbines typically have Ethernet connectivity ashore for monitoring and control of the turbine but these are highly secure connections and adding third party equipment to them is not a simple option. Likewise, the power supply available within the turbine cabin cannot be guaranteed and so a very reliable uninterruptable, renewable supply is required in addition to a telemetry system.

RADAC On Board Shipborne Radar Wave sensor

RADAC On Board  Shipborne Radar Wave sensor
The WaveGuide Onboard installation compensates for the vertical motions of the ship, so it measures the waves the ship actually has to endure. It consists of a sensor unit on the bow of the ship and a server. The sensor unit contains a WaveGuide Radar to measure distance to the water surface. The distances measured have to compensate for the vertical motions of the radar itself. Hence, a motion sensor is incorporated into the sensor unit. The WaveGuide Server takes care of synchronisation, collection and compensation of the data collected. The compensated radar signal is processed in the same way as the standard WaveGuide mounted on a fixed platform.
