Details

The RLS non-contact radar level sensor with pulse radar technology is ideal for monitoring in remote areas and applications where conventional measuring systems are not suitable. The RLS accurately and efficiently measures surface water level With a non-contact distance range of up to 115 feet above water. The sensor is IP67 waterproof and has extremely low power consumption, making it ideal for solar-charged monitoring systems.

The radar level sensor uses a revolutionary level measurement technology, meeting the USGS accuracy requirement of +/-0.01 feet. Two antennas are enclosed in a compact housing and transmit pulses toward the water surface. The time delay from transmission to receipt is proportional to the distance between sensor and water surface. A sampling rate of 16 Hz (16 measurements/second) with 20 second averaging minimizes water surface conditions such as waves and turbulence. The RLS does not require calibration and is unaffected by air temperature, humidity, flood events, floating debris, or contaminated water.

Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Where should I place my Radar Water Level Sensor?
In order to obtain reliable and correct measurements, you should avoid submerged obstructions and there should be a clear path between the sensor and the water to avoid false reflections. There is a full list of helpful site selection tips under the Documents Tab.
What maintenance do I need to preform to keep my Radar Water Level Sensor clean?
The OTT RLS sensor does not require calibration and there are no parts that need regular replacing. To maintain your sensor be sure to: check for dirt, obstructions in the measurement beam, and plausibility of the measured values. To clean your sensor, use commercial, gentle and non-erasing cleaners with a soft sponge.
My sensor is not responding to the SDI-12 Interface, what should I check?
There are a few possibilities when having trouble with the SDI-12 interface. First, check the fuse in the power supply. If that is working, the power supply may be too low or too high. You should be using 12/24V. If your voltage is correct, make sure you are using DC (direct current).

Researchers Find Link Between Climate Change and Gastrointestinal Illnesses

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.

Data Buoys Infographic

We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.
