Soil Moisture Sensor

TDR-310N

The TDR-310N is a replacement to the former MUNRO TDR-310L. It has a high voltage waveform output, which makes it effective in taking measurements when the soil electrical conductivity is high. It also consumes more power than the TDR-310H. It is a complete integrated time domain reflectometer that combines ultra-fast waveform generating and digitizing functions with a precision 5 pico-second resolution time base and highly sophisticated waveform digitizing and analyzing firmware that provides true time domain analysis of soil-propagated waveforms.
Its form factor is designed for easy vertical installation in an augured hole using a 34 mm flat-bottomed auger. It mates with a 1” schedule 40 PVC pipe that acts as a handle in its installation to any desired depth. It provides reading data through a 3-wire SDI-12 interface and is compatible with any data recorder that is compliant with SDI-12 version 1.4 and earlier.
