A thorough understanding of hydrological conditions
HyQuant provides the water level data needed to evaluate hydrological conditions of a catchment area – crucial for understanding water cycle and potential water management applications. It enables users to monitor and evaluate morphological changes in the waterbed and ensures the secure usage of watercourses for shipping. Plus, it plays a key role in establishing and operating reporting and warning systems for events like floods and extreme low water conditions.
60 GHz accuracy
Accurate, real-time data for risk management
Accurate, safe, continuous monitoring of water level is critical – especially if you operate flood warning systems, forecast water supply, or rely on river shipping. HyQuant & its alarm settings quickly detect sudden changes in water level, helping to triage drainage or maintenance issues.
Efficient resource management
Integrated water resources management
Better understanding of water availability and quality empowers efficient & integrated water management. Achieve multiple-benefit water use encompassing drinking water, farm irrigation, hydropower, and environmental health.
Easy-to-install and maintain, cost-effective HyQuant sensors can be deployed in large numbers for data density. Precise location-specific insights can inform decisions about equitable access to scarce resources, improve risk management, and reduce costs.

Affordable without compromise
HyQuant delivers unparalleled value in water monitoring by balancing superior performance and cost-effectiveness. The budget-friendly sensor, equipped with special features, requires minimal maintenance. Each device comes complete with a mounting bracket and cable, ensuring an exceptional price-to-performance ratio.
Simple installation, low maintenance
The streamlined, lightweight sensor — along with the included tilt and swivel mounting bracket — facilitates easy installation and proper positioning. Mount on various support structures, ranging from bridges or purpose-built structures to arms and outriggers. Installation with existing infrastructure is simple and can be accomplished by anyone.
Accurate, contactless & radar.
Non-contact radar sensors remain unaffected by the climatic conditions and other influences between the device and the water surface. Measure right up to the face of the sensor, recording measurements even during flooding. Overcome other challenges and larger dead zones experienced with competing non-contact technologies.
designed for water monitoring professionals across diverse fields.
The HyQuant series is designed to provide all must-have features to resolve common frustrations of water level & velocity monitoring, but at an affordable cost.
