Title
(EN) DEVICE FOR MEASURING LIQUID LEVEL BY MEANS OF OPTICAL REFLECTOMETRY, STRUCTURE COMPRISING SUCH A DEVICE AND CORRESPONDING MEASURING METHOD
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE MESURE DE NIVEAU DE LIQUIDE PAR RÉFLECTROMÉTRIE OPTIQUE, STRUCTURE COMPRENANT UN TEL DISPOSITIF ET PROCÉDÉ DE MESURE CORRESPONDANT
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a measuring device comprising: at least one optical fibre (15); a light source (17); and an analyser (19) for analysing light radiation back-scattered by the optical fibre (15) and deducing therefrom the liquid level in relation to the bottom (9). The measuring device (1) comprises a floater (21) floating at the free surface (13) of the liquid, the floater (21) comprising a passage (23) in which the or each optical fibre (15) is received in a sliding manner, a section (25) of the optical fibre (15) engaged in the passage being crimped or diverted.
(FR)
Le dispositif de mesure comprend : - au moins une fibre optique (15); - une source de lumière (17); - un analyseur (19), prévu pour analyser un rayonnement lumineux rétrodiffusé par la fibre optique (15) et pour en déduire le niveau de liquide par rapport au fond (9). Le dispositif de mesure (1) comprend un flotteur (21) flottant à la surface libre (13) du liquide, le flotteur (21) comportant un passage (23) dans lequel la ou chaque fibre optique (15) est reçue de manière coulissante, un tronçon (25) de la fibre optique (15) engagé dans le passage étant pincé ou dévié.
