SVR Surface Velocity Radar
The SVR is a handheld Surface Velocity Radar (SVR) gun specifically
designed to measure the surface velocity of water—great for use in
streams and rivers.
The SVR is powered by rechargeable batteries, making it easy to
measure surface flow anywhere. An LCD screen on the back of the
unit displays flow readout while in operation, and is also used to
configure the device.
The SVR allows scientists to determine the surface velocity of
water. Designed specifically to measure streams and rivers, the SVR
gives you precise speed measurement from a stationary position
outside the body of water.
The face panel includes a 3-digit speed display and three buttons:
menu, select, and power. Using the "menu" and "select" buttons you
can control display backlighting, cosine correction, serial
communication output mode, and high / low speed range settings.
The SVR includes cosine error correction, allowing the unit to
account for target angles not parrellel to the direction of water
The SVR includes an internal sensor to detect vertical angle, and
allows users to set horizontal angles to ensure accurate speeds.
