Microwave Type Wave Height Meter WM-2
Manufacturer : 14 / Category : 42
Micro wave type wave gauge WM-2 measures and records consecutive wave height data from the sea platform in a ship or an oceanic tower etc. wave height can be measured without contacting sea water directly. The system consists of detecting elements, connection box and a signal processor. It is also possible to calculate various statistics analysis values from the wave quantity data detected by the primary detecting elements. The accelerometer is placed on a moving platform like vessel or ship to measure vertical oscillation. Therefore continuous measurement of the real wave height can be carried out even from the moving vessel.
WM-2 measures and records consecutive wave height data from the sea platform in a ship or an oceanic tower, etc.
・ The structure of sensor is strong enough to withstand the impact of sea water.
・ The signal processor can output the real value(real wave height value)
・ The observation accuracy is less than ±10%
・ Since wave height measurement is done without any direct contact of sensor with sea water , this system is almost maintenance free.
・ This system can be installed not only in a vessel but on an transonic tower, on a pier and on an estuary weir.
The accurate value of sea wave height is obtained by removing effect of hull agitation (that is value received from accelerometer).
It is a value when measured wave height was between 0.2～8.0m and wave period was between 3～15 seconds.
We supply our WM-2 for Research Vessel 'Sagar Nidhi' of INCOIS (Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services).
