Deep knowledge

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 to uphold safe 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.

High accuracy

Real-time data for risk management

Non-contact and 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.

HyQuant L

A most versatile and reliable non-contact level sensor for districts of all sizes

The use of frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) technology overcomes drawbacks from intermittent pulse technology.

The compact, lightweight, IP68-rated device has a narrow beam width and built-in filter algorithms for high precision data.

Available in two measuring ranges:
• HyQuant L 20: 0.32 – 65.61 ft
• HyQuant L 50: 0.49 – 164.04 ft

Why HyQuant L

  • Deploy out of the box
    Price includes mounting bracket, cable, and multiple comms/protocol choices (Modbus, SDI-12 & secure Wi-Fi).
  • Customizable filters adapt to diverse conditions
    for higher accuracy and resolution.
  • One of the highest power efficiencies
    15 mA (typical at 12V).
  • Reliable measurements also in flooded conditions
    IP68 rating for dust, water and shock protection.
  • Lightweight, streamlined design
    Simple installation, and less visible to potential vandals.
  • High quality data
    <= 2 mm accuracy, stable over the full measurement range.
  • Ensured accuracy within the widest range
    The shortest blanking distance available.
  • For both narrow and wide water bodies
  • Special advantages over most level radars
    Continuous FMCW measurement, not intermittent sensing common to water level radars.
