Radar Dish Monitoring

The Need

A radar dish installation exposed to significant temperature changes and direct sunlight, requires precise, reliable, and continuous inclination measurements monitoring.

The Challenge

All high-precision instruments are sensitive to temperature changes. Significant temperature changes can inhibit or even prevent precision measurements.

Therefore precise and continuous monitoring of the radar base inclination as well as the reference casing for the incremental protractors is extremely important.

The Solution

The sensor gets a standard calibration, at 20 °C => the air is cooled for high temperatures and heated for lower temperatures.

The sensor is specially calibrated at the highest possible temperature (e.g. 50 °C) and the environment is permanently heated to + 50 °C.

The WTS is for a semi-permanent single-axis option, dual-axis, or a dual-axis sensor like the DSIC for a more permanent solution.
