HyQuant V is KISTERS’ state-of-the-art non-contact surface velocity 60 GHz V-band Doppler radar sensor. 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.

Specially designed antenna
Beam inclination ensured by design. This simplifies sensor positioning, requiring only parallel mounting to the water surface for optimal placement. Small antennas, short wavelength and optimised beam width ensure high resolution and accuracy across the measurement range.

Optional upgradability to L+V or Q
Upgrade to the level and velocity radar HyQuant L+V or to the discharge radar 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 customised via an intuitive wizard-driven interface.
