Logan, Utah — April 10th, 2015
High accuracy, simple SDI-12 communication and advanced design, are just a few features of the new Nile Series (Nile 502, Nile 504, Nile 517) radar water level sensors, released this week by WaterLOG – a xylem brand.
The Nile series operates based on the time-of-flight method. Radar impulses are emitted by an antenna, reflected off the target (water surface) and received again by the radar system. This provides the most precise measurement data in water level applications requiring non-contact transmission.
"The Nile series will continue to provide stable long-term monitoring with a high level of accuracy, and long range with low operating power, and extremely low cost to service and operate," said Timothy Jeppsen, Product Manager.
Jeppsen continued, "The Nile is available in three ranges; the Nile 502 has a range of 20 meters, the Nile 504 of 40 meters, and the Nile 517, a range of 70 meters. The Nile 502 provides an increase in accuracy from ±3mm to ±2mm, compared to the H-3600 sensors".
This series of WaterLOG instruments is designed to be mounted on the side of bridges or other enclosures above surface water. The rugged, innovative design was built for extreme environmental conditions—making this series ideal for tough to reach sites.
