HyQuant L, KISTERS’ state-of-the-art non-contact water level radar sensor, operates on a 60 GHz V-Band FMCW* radar technology. It offers superior resolution and accuracy, with reduced power consumption, all at an appealing price point.

Compact design
The sensor’s exceptional compactness ensures effortless and swift installations. Its discrete design further deters vandalism and enables flexible and easy installations in various support structures such as bridges and booms located in narrow and wide water bodies, urban and remote applications.

Measurement ranges
Designed for hydrological applications, the sensor is available in two ranges:

  • HyQuant L20:
    0.10 … 20 m (0.32 … 65.61 ft)
  • HyQuant L50:
    0.15 … 50 m (0.49 … 164.04 ft)

Optional upgradability to L+V or Q
Upgrade to the level and velocity radar HyQuant L+V or to the discharge radar sensor HyQuant Q, without uninstalling or returning the instrument, purchasing additional sensors and/or adapting the housing.

This radar system seamlessly adapts to varied monitoring environments, thanks to adjustable filter settings easily customizable via an intuitive wizard-driven interface.

HyQuant L gives customers access to non-contact technology without requiring radar expertise or compromising on size, features or performance.
