Wave Height & Tide

The WaveGuide Height & Tide accurately measures wave height, wave period and tide.

Mounted high above the water and without any moving parts there is no need for preventive maintenance or cleaning. (Re-) calibration is never required due to long term stable zero reference and constant sensitivity. The system is compact, robust and easy to install. It is equipped to measure wave heights and tides accurately, even in the most extreme conditions.
