SENSORS

BEST IN CLASS ACCURACY

Streamflow, or discharge, is the volume of water moving down a stream or river per unit of time, commonly expressed in cubic meters/feet per second or litres/gallons per day. Because stream discharge cannot be measured directly, it must be computed from parameters that can be measured directly, including water level/stage, velocity and the stream or river-bed profile.

With the introduction of radar level/stage and velocity sensors, it is now possible to continuously monitor and therefore calculate discharge using solid state technology. FTS offers a variety of both types of sensors to suite your specific needs.

Radar Stage Sensor (SDI Radar)

The FTS Radar Stage Sensor delivers fully digital best in class accuracy of up to +/- 2mm (0.007ft) through its complete standard measurement range. Great for open water, rivers, stilling wells, commonly used by USGS.

Radar Stage Sensor (SDI Radar 64)

The FTS Radar Stage Sensor delivers fully digital best in class accuracy of up to +/-1mm (0.003ft) through its complete standard measurement range. Great for open water, rivers, stilling wells, areas requiring higher accuracy.

Radar Stage Sensor

Radar Stage Sensor (SDI Radar 81)

The FTS Radar Stage Sensor delivers fully digital best in class accuracy of up to +/- 2mm (0.007ft) and its guide wire is optimum for level measurement in storage tanks, standpipes and wells. Great for open water, rivers, stilling wells, commonly used by USGS.
