HyQuant L+V is KISTERS’ state-of-the-art 60 GHz V-band FMCW* water level & Doppler water velocity radar, with top-tier radar electronics and radar-on-chip technology, offering advantages such as:

Simultaneous data acquisition
Simultaneous level & surface velocity data crucial for stream discharge calculation.

Compact design
Weighing merely 1.15 kg (2.54 lb), the HyQuant L+V is the smallest of its kind. Its discrete design deters vandalism and enables flexible and easy installations in various support structures like bridges and booms, in narrow and wide water bodies, and in urban and remote applications.  

Dual antenna setup
Uses carefully designed separate antenna pairs for level and velocity measurements. The required beam inclination for V is ensured by design. This simplifies sensor positioning, needing only parallel mounting for optimal placement.

All-in-one solution
Eliminates the need for extra housings for independent sensors.

Optional upgrade to Q
Upgrade to discharge calculation without technical modifications.

Small antennas, short wavelength and optimised beam width ensure high resolution and accuracy across the measurement range. The user adjustable filter settings allows adaptation to diverse monitoring scenarios.

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