Rugged and Field Ready – The New Field Scout TDR Series


Source: Spectrum Technologies, Inc

Plainfield, IL – When precision irrigation decisions count, the AE50 award-winning Field Scout TDR Series offers growers the tools to eliminate the guesswork. Based on proven time-domain measurement technology, these portable units accurately measure soil moisture across the full range of soil moisture conditions. Now with an additional mode for use in high clay soils.

The Field Scout TDR Series has two volumetric water content modes; one for standard soils and one for higher clay soils. In volumetric water content (VWC) mode, the meter converts a measured electrical signal into percent soil moisture content using an equation valid over a wide range of mineral soils. In irrigation mode, the meter displays a relative water content (RWC) on a scale of 0 to 100 corresponding to a user-defined upper and lower soil moisture reference level. Water deficit, the amount of water needed to bring the soil moisture content up to the upper reference level, is also calculated and displayed. The reference levels are easily programmed into the meter with the accompanying software. Create up to 2 management sites based on your soil types and crop needs. Use the raw reading mode (measurement period in microseconds) to do soil-specific calibrations. An internal data logger and RS-232 port allow for use with a DGPS for geo-referenced soil moisture measurements(TDR 300 model only). Includes software and PC cable.
