Wave gauge system - 4 channels Product number: HRWG-0090

The wave gauge system is a simple and reliable device for measuring rapidly changing water levels in physical models. When combined with our HR DAQ data acquisition and analysis software it provides a first rate method of measuring wave height in a flume or 3D basin.

Principles of operation
The wave probes operate by measuring the current that flows between two stainless steel wires that are immersed in water. This current is converted to an output voltage that is directly proportional to the immersed depth. The wave probe monitors are supplied in cases that can accommodate four monitors. The case includes the power supply for the modules and is supplied with its own standard plug. The case also has connections for triggering and synchronising the data that is sent back to the PC.

The 4-channel wave gauge system comprises:

By default, our system is supplied with 300 mm wave probes, but other lengths are available to fit users' needs.

Our wave gauge system is also available with 8 channels.

All components of our wave gauge system are available to purchase individually on this website.
