Small but mighty powerful

Easy-to-install and maintain, cost-effective HyQuant sensors can be deployed in large numbers to support water-critical operations.

Precise location-specific insights can inform decisions about equitable access to scarce resources, improve risk management, reduce operating costs, and maximize power generation.

Non-contact continuous monitoring of water level is essential — especially if you operate flood warning systems, forecast water supply, or rely on waterway transport.

HyQuant and its alarm settings quickly detect sudden changes in water level and velocity, helping to triage drainage, emergency or maintenance issues.

the HyQuant series

Fitted with IP68 rating, FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) technology, and available in two versions of 20m and 50m range, HyQuant L supplies measurements with ultimate precision within a user-defined site-specific validity range.

Key features:

  • Cost-effective solution includes mounting bracket, cable, SDI-12, Modbus and Wi-Fi. No hidden costs for installation.
  • High data quality under any conditions: ≤ 2 mm accuracy over the entire measurement range.
  • Highly energy efficient, ideal for solar powered sites.
  • Narrow beam angle for ultimate versatility in narrow and wide water bodies.
  • User-configurable filter settings for local adaptation, and intuitive software via Wi-Fi for on-site set-up.
  • Stage point setting via powerful GUI to obtain real water level data.
  • SDI-12 and Modbus interface delivers key parameters with supporting metadata providing 100% data confidence.
  • Direct readout of engineering data via SDI-12 or Modbus interface.

The first water surface velocity radar sensor to use the 60 GHz frequency band, HyQuant V delivers higher resolution, accuracy, IP 68 protection and low power consumption at an attractive price.

Key features:

Radar on-chip technology with a special antenna design that simplifies sensor positioning by eliminating the need to manually adjust sensor orientation to find the optimum radar beam angle.

  • Continuous velocity data in low, normal and high flow conditions with superior sensitivity.
  • Configuration software with adjustable filter settings.
  • No true dead zone: measures up to the outside of the housing cover.
  • Flexible mounting adapter for easy installation.
  • Direct readout of engineering data via SDI-12 or Modbus interface.

The ultimate all-in-one, IP68-rated monitoring solution with higher sensitivity at an attractive price. HyQuant L + V packs the latest innovative features including Doppler & FMCW (Frequency Modulated Continuous Wave) technology into the smallest casing.

Key features:

  • Radar-on-chip (RoC) technology with special antennas is designed for simultaneous level and velocity data acquisition. The stream data then determines stream discharge.
  • The smallest of its kind, weighting only 1.15 kg.
  • Exceptional data quality is achieved through high resolution, optimized sensing area and continuous measurement in all stage and flow conditions.
  • No need for additional housings to accommodate independent sensors.
  • Easy installation, configuration and integration.
  • Direct readout of engineering data via SDI-12 or Modbus interface.

With HyQuant, the challenge was not to build a water level radar -- but to come as close as possible to a perfect tool for professional hydrographers and flood warning system managers alike. We listened attentively, assessed the wealth of first-hand insights, and only then we got to work.
