A device installed on a quay to measure wave height
The Capacitance Type Wave Height and Tide Meter is installed on the quay and can measure the changes in wave height. In accordance with the change of the level of the sea surface, the capacitance of the wire in the wave height detection will change. In this type of wave height meter, wave height is calculated by detecting the change in the capacitance of the wire. Tide level and wave period can be calculated and outputted from the wave signal.
An example of System Configuration
- Primary Detection Unit : One (primary-detecting-element installation requirements:-5～-50℃)
- Head Amplifier 1 Unit
- Signal Converter 1 Unit
- Signal Processor 1 Unit
|Item||Detection Method||Measured Range||Accuracy|
|WaveHeight||Change in the capacitance of the detector is measured||0~10m(IncludingTidal)||±1% FS|
|Sea level||Wave signal is processed in signal processor to calculate sea level||±5m||±1% FS|
|Period||Wave signal is processed in signal processor to calculate wave period||1～25Second||±1Second|
