No other soil moisture probe system enables you to monitor your soil water profiles with such ease and flexibility. Install an access tube into the soil, insert the PR2 Profile Probe and press the HH2 [Read] button to display an instantaneous reading, or connect the PR2 to a data logger (GP2, DL6 or DL2e) and leave the system to record soil moisture changes over time.
The PR2 soil moisture probe is built around patented sensing technology which provides unprecedented performance in all soil types, with minimal influence from either salinity or temperature. The PR2/4 model measures soil moisture at 4 depths down to 40 cm or the PR2/6 measures at 6 depths down to 100 cm.
The PR2 Profile Probe access tube requires an installation hole 27 mm in diameter, allowing easy installation and minimal soil disturbance. Access tubes are manufactured to strict tolerances and are exceptionally strong and durable in the soil. Correct installation is essential and we recommend the use of our specially designed augering equipment.
The PR2 Profile Probe is available in two sizes to measure to a depth of 40 cm or 100 cm.
The PR2/4 has sensing elements at 10/20/30/40 cm
The PR2/6 has sensing elements at 10/20/30/40/60 and 100 cm
Profile Probes are available with analogue or SDI-12 outputs.
For the analogue version, order PR2/4 or PR2/6.
For the SDI-12 interface version, order PR2/4-SDI-12 or PR2/6-SDI-12.
Please note that analogue and SDI‐12 probes cannot be mixed on the same cable system
Loggers for analogue Profile Probes
Delta-T offers a choice of two data suitable data loggers. Both have dedicated PR2 Profile Probe input channels and connectors:
The DL6 Data Logger can log one PR2/6 or one PR2/4 Profile Probe
The GP2 Data Logger can log up to two PR2/6s or three PR2/4s
Loggers for SDI-12 Profile Probes
The PR2 SDI‐12 is ideally matched to the SDI‐12 enabled GP2 Data Logger. Many SDI-12 Profile Probes can be connected to a single GP2 (actual number depends on cable length, power, and other considerations).
Further details of the PR2 SDI-12 can be found here.
