Ice Thickness Sensor LD-1200

The LD-1200 Ice Thickness Sensor is designed for non-contact and contact measurement of the thickness of fresh ice, detection of dangerous places (cracks, scours, voids) in real time. It has a convenient, lightweight, portable design for pedestrian operation: one-handed operation, ice thickness measurement range of 0.05 - 2.0 m.

The LD-1200 Ice Thickness Sensor is designed for non-contact and contact measurement of the thickness of fresh ice, detection of dangerous places (cracks, scours, voids) in real time. It has a convenient, lightweight, portable design for pedestrian operation: one-handed operation, ice thickness measurement range of 0.05 - 2.0 m.

Application:

The device provides:
- safety control during the movement of vehicles and people on ice crossings;
- monitoring of ice thickness during winter fishing, extreme driving on ice, etc.;
- obtaining data for forecasting the pre-flood period.

For accurate measurements of the ice thickness, it is necessary to make smooth swinging of the antenna up and down with an amplitude of several centimeters during operation. The compact size and low weight of the device allow the user to hold it in one hand, gradually moving along the ice surface. The device displays in real time a radarogram with an image of the interfaces between environments (air, snow, ice) and the measured values ​​of the ice thickness.
