Valeport’s New Radar Level Sensor

Press Release
Friday, January 25, 2013

Valeport announced the launch of the VRS20 Radar Level Sensor. 

Using non-contact technology, the VRS20 is designed to be installed to measure water level in a wide variety of applications.


The VRS20 uses 25GHz pulsed k-band radar to measure water level to an accuracy of ±10mm (this is unaffected by changes in water density or atmospheric condition).  It has been designed to work seamlessly with Valeport’s TideMaster tide logger or can operate as a standalone device with optional integrated GPRS telemetry.  Alternatively it can interface with a third party data logger.       



Kevin Edwards, Sales and Marketing Manager at Valeport, explains more about the benefits of the VRS20, “We have responded to the market and developed a water level measuring instrument that uses non-contact radar technology to avoid the issues of traditional submerged devices, such as fouling and corrosion.  Installation couldn’t be easier, with integrated spirit bubbles for levelling and an integral mounting bracket with tool-free adjustment.”  



Data collection is a simple process for the VRS20, with RS232, RS485 and SDI 12 communication as standard.  With a wide range 9 – 28v DC power supply, the device is also versatile.  The VRS20 comes in a fully sealed injection moulded housing which is rated to IP67, complete with a bar fixing for GPS antenna use.  With all these features, the VRS20 will be ideal for use in port and harbour operations, surveying and monitoring deployments.
