New Hand Held Display
The Hydrosense II hand held has been designed to be compact and portable with the layout of the buttons allowing for operation with one hand. An integrated GPS tags each measurement with a latitude and longitude. Zones can be created on the unit which group measurements together so that average soil moisture can be calculated for an area. The current position and zone are shown on the display so that measurements can be taken in the same zone. Data storage has been added to allow up to 1500 measurements to be stored on the device. The data can then be downloaded to a PC via Bluetooth for viewing and archiving.
New Soil Moisture Probe
The new soil moisture probe uses the same accurate measurement technique as the old probe, but the probe housing has been redesigned to aid insertion into and removal from hard soils. The probe rods are secured to the probe housing with ferrule nuts to provide extra stability during insertion. A moulded plastic grip connects the sensor cable to housing to provide better grip.
New PC software has been developed to make the most of the data storage capability of the Hydrosense II. The software connects to the hand held via Bluetooth to avoid the need for extra cables.
The software will allow the user to:
-View data in table and chart views
-Edit zone positions and sizes
-Change device settings
-Export data to CSV to interface with 3rd party software
-View zones and measurements in Google Earth
