CAE presents LPR: the only "Made in Italy" radar hydrometer and wavemeter
First and only water level and wave meter sensor based on radar technology entirely designed and manufactured in Italy, LPR is available both in the version for measuring the water level in streams, rivers and reservoirs, as well as in the version for wave measurement applications.
LPR is characterised by a reduced measuring cone, low power consumption, compact design and absence of parts immersed in water. It has no mechanical moving parts and is therefore extremely robust. LPR is designed for use in a wide range of situations.
Independence from changes in temperature and humidity, typical of radar technology, provides accurate measurements in all weather conditions, with a measurement accuracy of ±2 mm up to 35 metres away. Thanks to its high technology, LPR is able to provide a reliable and precise measurement in less than 10 seconds, making it the fastest in its category.
To simplify and reduce the cost of installation, LPR is provided together with a practical configuration software for PC or tablet. Thanks to this interface it is possible to identify and isolate, with the aid of a graph, any obstacles in the measurement area (pillars, boulders, containment structures, etc.) that are not the actual target to be measured. The same software allows the user to adjust all the operating parameters, including measurement times.
In addition to providing a 4-20 mA standard analogical physical interface, LPR has an RS485 port that implements an SDI-12 standard protocol, with a mechanism that makes it simple to install and easy to interface with any data-logger.
