AWP-24-2 Wave Height Gauge (Superseded by the AWP-24-3)

The AWP-24-2 capacitance wave height gauge was introduced to the market in late 2012 and has since been superseded by the AWP-24-3. The AWP-24-2 is ideally suited for indoor and outdoor applications where high accuracy water level measurement is required and for unidirectional and multidirectional wave measurement. It provides an accurate, highly responsive measure of depth changes from sub-millimeter to meters. It comes in a rugged die-cast aluminium alloy enclosure that allows it to be deployed indoors or outdoors.

The output stage of the AWP-24-2 includes a 16-bit digital-to-analogue converter. This provides a high-level +/- 5 volt analogue output signal that can be sampled using conventional data acquisition systems.


AWP-24-2 Wave Height Gauge

The AWP-24-2 combines temperature stable electronics and a high quality Wave Probe Head. This results in extremely small calibration slope changes over temperature, making frequent calibrations redundant.

Akamina acquired an exclusive licence to GEDAP - Generalized Experiment control and Data Acquisition Package - developed by the National Research Council Canada. GEDAP is a well-proven, complete software solution for physical modelling in hydrodynamic laboratories. GEDAP brings wave synthesis and wave data analysis with sophisticated plotting capabilities to the Akamina data acquisition and control offering.


We will have a booth at Coastlab16 (www.coastlab2016.html) in Ottawa in May 2016; please drop by for a visit and to see some of our products.

The AWP-24-3 Capacitance Wave Height Gauge is now available. The AWP-24-3 can be customized with an external Push-Button with Status LED and Power LED mounted on the outside of the box to support configuration of the gauge without opening the enclosure. The AWP-24-3 is based on the highly reliable AWP-24-2 and has all of its advanced features. For more information please visit AWP-24-3 Wave Height Gauge.


After extensive evaluation, IH Cantabria, one of the

premier environmental hydraulics institutes in Europe, has chosen the AWP-24 Wave Height Gauge from Akamina Technologies for their hydraulics research laboratories.

The AWP-300-3 Wave Height Gauge, with a CAN Bus digital interfaceis now available. This Wave Height Gauge is ideally suited for wave height measurements and integration with active wave absorption systems. It provides the same reliable, highly linear and accurate measurements of wave heights and water levels as the AWP-24 Series. For more information please visit AWP-300-3 Wave Height Gauge.



Akamina completes the design and the successful installation of 56-segment wave generator control system upgrade. The upgrade included custom control hardware and software as well as data acquisition hardware and software. This work was done for EDF - Laboratoire National d'Hydraulique et Environnement (EDF-LNHE) in Chatou, France.
