The RP-30 mobile radar device is used in rivers, streams and open channels and calculates the exact discharge of the body of water through several sectional velocity measurements. As is the case with the RQ-30, this method of measurement is also based on innovative radar technology including all the advantages of a non-contact measuring device.
This Mobile Radar Profiler is ideally suited for situationally and non-permanent monitoring tasks, for project evaluations or control measurements. Unlike most other measuring devices it provides reliable values even in flood situations making it particularly useful in natural hazard management.
With the aid of an adjustable mounting for handrails the Radar Profiler can be easily moved along a bridge railing to the desired measuring points. Alternatively, it can be fixed to a cable crane or tripod. The measurement is then carried out in sections across the whole width of the river. Thanks to the integrated Bluetooth transmitter data sets can be transferred directly to a laptop and viewed in real time during the monitoring process.
