Acclima Digital True TDR-310N Soil Moisture Sensor (SDI-12)

Product Summary

A fully integrated digital TDR soil water content sensor (a.k.a., soil moisture sensor, probe, or meter) that has demonstrated superb accuracy consistently with excellent repeatability.

The TDR-310N is a replacement to the former Acclima 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.
