PICO 64: High tech sensor with integrated TRIME technology

The intelligent rod sensor PICO64 is ideal for monitoring systems that determine soil moisture, temperature and electrical conductivity in soils and other porous materials. The integration of a probe and TDR evaluation electronics is unique so far.

Our TRIME TDR probes measure soil conductivity, moisture and temperature on a volumetric Basis. It determines the salinity in mg salt per Liter water for different soils at varying levels of moisture without complicated laboratory measurements. Because of the mechanical robustness TRIME-PICO64 is optimal for mobile usage with our Bluetooth module PICO-BT or the robust hand-held meter HD2.
