Unlike other brands, our soil moisture probes allow user defined or site specific calibration equations to be applied to each individual sensor. This ability to account for different soil types delivers even greater accuracy – meaning more timely responses, better land control, more valuable research projects and improved crop management. As well, they are designed for undisturbed installation without the need for messy slurries.
By employing a patented measurement technique the TriSCAN® sensor is able to distinguish between soil water content and salt content. Coupled with Sentek’s IrriMAX software this becomes a comprehensive irrigation and fertigation management tool.
TriSCAN continuously tracks fertilizer and salinity as well as monitors soil moisture at multiple points in the soil profile offering users an ongoing and uninterrupted picture of what is happening in their crop root zone.
The TriSCAN sensors are available for both the EnviroSCAN and Drill & Drop probes making them ideal for shallow rooted annual crops as well as deeper agricultural and environmental installations. With a choice of interfaces available, TriSCAN is easily integrated to a range of technologies including weather stations, data loggers and irrigation controllers. The TriSCAN sensor is optimized for agriculture’s most common soil texture of sands and sandy loams.
