Non contact water level sensor refers to the radar water level sensor. Radar Water Level Sensor is suitable for water level monitoring of lakes, rivers, reservoirs, open channels, and tidal water levels.
Radar Non-Contact Water Level Sensor adopts a non-contact measurement method and does not touch the water body. It is not affected by water quality, sediment and floating objects. The RS-485/RS-232/4-20mA interface can realize data long-distance wired transmission or docking with SCADA hydrological telemetry system. The measuring distance can be up to 70 meters.

Radar Non Contact Water Level Sensor for water level monitoring installation
Radar Non-Contact Water Level Sensor is a high-precision non-contact water level measuring instrument, no logging is required. It is easy to install and can directly measure the water level of natural rivers.
Radar Non Contact Water Level Sensor field comparison test application test, analyze the accumulated measurement data and comparison test results. In order to expand the test results, provide a basis for the selection of water level gauges, and at the same time improve the water level measurement and reporting conditions of the hydrological station on the upper reaches of the Yellow River.
Let me introduce to you the installation diagram of Radar Non Contact Water Level Sensor.
Preparation and inspection before installation;
Please pay attention to the following matters to ensure that the meter can be installed correctly;
Please reserve enough space for installation;
Please avoid installation situations with strong vibration;
Please see the installation diagram description and installation location of the radar water level gauge below:
When a radar antenna emits microwave pulses, it has a certain emission angle.
There should be no obstacles from the lower edge of the antenna to the surface of the measured medium, and in the area radiated by the microwave beam.
Therefore, shielding facilities should be avoided as much as possible during installation, and “false echo learning” must be carried out when necessary.
Also pay attention when installing the instrument: the highest liquid level must not enter the measurement blind zone. The meter must be connected to the ground, and lightning protection measures should be added. Outdoor shading and rainproof measures should be taken.
If you need to measure river water level, open channel level, etc. The Ultrasonic Liquid Level Sensor can be used for non-contact continuous level monitoring.

Non Contact Capacitive Liquid Level Sensor
There are three commonly used non-contact liquid level sensors, namely capacitive liquid level sensors, ultrasonic liquid level sensors, and separate photoelectric liquid level sensors.
The non-contact liquid level sensor means that the liquid level can be detected without contacting the liquid. With this advantage, the application field of the non-contact liquid level sensor has been greatly expanded.
The capacitive liquid level sensor can detect the liquid level by attaching it to the container, so the installation process is simple. Capacitive liquid level sensors are mostly used in the field of home appliances because the positioning is due to the small size and low price of the sensor.
If the capacitive liquid level sensor is installed on the body, the container can be moved arbitrarily. For example, the capacitive liquid level sensor detects the low liquid level of the aromatherapy machine. When the sensor detects that the fragrance in the aroma diffuser bottle is only 20ml, it will give a signal to remind you. After the device receives the signal, it turns on the buzzer to alarm or light up to remind. At this time, the user can take the bottle to add liquid, or directly replace another bottle with a new one.
The disadvantage of capacitive liquid level sensors is that they can only be used on non-metallic containers. And it cannot detect liquids with low conductivity, such as diesel gasoline. It is also unable to detect high-temperature liquids. High-temperature liquid will cause the sensor to fail.
Non contact type water level sensor
Non contact level sensor is when the liquid level gauge measures the liquid level, the sensor does not need to touch the measured medium.
Common non contact level sensors include ultrasonic and radar.
Ultrasonic Level Sensing sensors and transmitters are used for continuous, non-contact level measurement.
Ultrasonic Level Sensing is a low-cost liquid level measurement technology. Ultrasonic Level Sensing sensors and transmitters are used for tank or river level measurement. Ultrasonic Level Sensing does not need to contact the medium, can be continuously measured, low cost. Therefore, Ultrasonic Level Sensing is very popular among users. Ultrasonic liquid level sensors are available in general and intrinsically safe types. Output 4~20mA standard signal or output the measurement result to the secondary meter through RS-485. Meets the system’s automatic control.
Radar level measurement uses Non-contacting radar technology for Continuous level measurement. Liquids and solids are commonly measured with this measuring technique.
Radar level transmitters use radar technology to perform non-contact continuous level measurement. The radar level indicator converts the level into an electrical signal. The level signal output can then be utilised by other instrumentation to monitor or control. Liquids and solids are commonly measured with this measuring technique. Like: Fly ash silo. Radar level sensors are divided into: Pulsed radar technology and frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) radar level sensors.

Featured Non Contact Tank Level Sensors
HS-2000 External Mounted Ultrasonic Tank Level Sensor- (referred to as “external level gauge”). It adopts advanced signal processing technology and high-speed signal processing chip. It breaks through the influence of container wall thickness. Realizes the height of the liquid level in the closed container True non-contact measurement.
The ultrasonic liquid level sensor (probe) is installed directly under the outer wall (bottom) of the container under test. Calibrate the outer wall of the probe. There is no need to open holes for the container to be tested, easy to install, and does not affect production. It can accurately measure the level of various toxic substances, strong acids, strong alkalis and various pure liquids in high-pressure airtight containers.
The HS-2000 External Mounted Ultrasonic Tank Level Sensor has no special requirements for the material of the liquid medium and the container. The explosion-proof design is adopted to meet the explosion-proof requirements.
Portable ultrasonic liquid level indicator is best choice for tanks or pipes level measurement. It is designed to measure the presence or absence of liquid at a certain height position in a tank or in pipelines. Non-contact ultrasonic detection technology.
