PR2 soil moisture profile probe from Delta-T Devices enables users to monitor their soil water profiles with great ease and flexibility. It comes in analogue and digital (SDI-12)* versions.
By installing an access tube into the soil, inserting the PR2 Profile Probe, and pressing the HH2 [Read] button, users can instantaneously obtain soil water profile data.
On the other hand, by connecting the PR2 Profile Probe to a data logger, they can acquire data on soil moisture evolution over time.
The PR2 soil moisture probe is based on patented sensing technology, which delivers outstanding performance in all types of soil and does not get largely affected by either temperature or salinity.
It is offered in two sizes to provide measurements to a depth of 40 cm or 100 cm. The PR2/4 model provides soil moisture measurements at 4 depths down to 40 cm, while the PR2/6 provides measurements at 6 depths down to 100 cm.
The following are the key features of the PR2 soil moisture profile probe:
Supplied with soil calibrations for common soil types
Portable meter option provides convenient multi-site measurement
Low salinity and temperature sensitivity
Soil moisture content - not just trends
IP68 protected connectors for versatile connectivity
Use of access tubes allows easy installation and minimal soil disturbance.
SDI-12 Digital version of the PR2
PR2 SDI-12 is a digital alternative to the well-established analogue PR2 Profile Probe. It shares the many strengths of the analogue PR2 soil moisture probe, but with the addition of SDI-12 compatibility - allowing integration into new and existing SDI-12 systems. Key Features:
PR2 SDI-12 can be connected to a compatible data logger via a single cable Enables the creation of low cost highly flexible sensor networks
Compatible with existing PR2 access tubes and augering kits
Conforms to industry standard SDI-12 (v1.3) spec
Flexible integration with 3rd party
SDI-12 systems New low power design; ideal for remote sites
