Probe for Soil Volumetric Water Content Measurement
The probes HD3910.1 (two electrodes) and HD3910.2 (three electrodes) measure the soil volumetric water content (VWC) by using a capacitive measurement principle which allows fast measurements in the eld and with minimal invasiveness.
The three-electrode probe HD3910.2 is particularly suitable for the measurement in small volumes, for example for cultivations in pots.
The probes are factory-calibrated and do not require any further calibration by the end user.
The circuit board is protected inside a housing made of plastic material and sealed with epoxy resin which allows achieving reliable measurements even in harsh envi- ronmental conditions.
The RS485 digital output with MODBUS RTU protocol allows the use of even very long connection cables. It can be connected to the data loggers HD32MT.1 and HD32MT.3 or to any other data logger with RS485 MODBUS RTU input.
The probes are equipped with a xed cable, 5 or 10m standard length, with open wires at the end.
Delta Ohm manufactures First Class LP PYRA 02 and LP PYRA 12 and Second Class LP PYRA 03 pyranometers which fully comply with ISO 9060 standards, and meet the requirements defined by the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). These are strong and reliable instruments, especially designed to be used under all weather conditions. They are suitable for installation on the field.
The HD2013 is a reliable and sturdy tipping bucket rain gauge, built entirely from corrosion resistant materials in order to guarantee its durability. So as to ensure accurate measurement even with low temperature climatic conditions or during and after precipitations of snow, a version with heating which is automatically activated around +4 °C has been developed so that snow deposits and ice formations are prevented.
The LP Silicon-PYRA 04. pyranometer measures the global solar radiation (W/ m2) by using a silicon photodiode (350nm-1100nm). The special geometry and the diffuser allow to have a pyranometer field of view of 180 degrees according to cosine law.
The Sunshine Duration sensor LP SD18 measures sunshine status and duration. The WMO (World Meteorological Organization) defines the sunshine duration as the time during which the direct solar radiation exceeds the level of 120 W/m2.
