The World's First Fully Integrated TRUE TDR Digital Soil Moisture Sensor Reader.
A WORLD FIRST:
Developed in response to customer demand, the RD1200 combines Acclima's patented TDR-315L® Soil Moisture Sensor technology with an easy to use handheld interface for instant readings out in the field.
Volumetric Water Content (0 to 100% with 0.1% resolution)
Permittivity (1 to 80 with 0.1 unit resolution)
Bulk EC (0 to 5000 μS/cm - resolution depends on reading range)
Pore Water EC (0 to 55000 μS/cm)
Temperature (- 40 to +60 degrees C with 0.1 degree resolution)
Data storage/export - data can be stored on the device and exported via the included USB thumb drive to PC or Mac
Irrigation recommendations - instant analysis of soil offers recommended irrigation moisture thresholds based on soil type
Waveform Capture - a request form our soil scientists who can now see the full TDR returned waveform
Multiple sensors - Can be used with multiple TDR-315 sensors simply by connecting via waterproof M12 Connectors (can be ordered separately)
Rugged 316 stainless-steel waveguide. Expected in-service life in excess of 20 years.
Large 150 ml soil sample volume
SDI-12 Version 1.3 Interface
Compatible with SDI-12 Data Loggers including Acclima's DataSnap
Derives VWC from ±1% of true permittivity in soils out to 4 dS/m Bulk EC
Soil temperature resolution ±0.2 degree C.
No calibration. Works in ALL soils
No maintenance, simple penetration-style insertion
Linear range of 0-100% volume water content
Moisture readings remain stable as soil salinity, fertiliser content & temperature change
Moisture sense time of <1 second
Very low power, battery operable
