EnviroSCAN

Our award-winning EnviroSCAN probe is the only commercially available product that can monitor soil moisture, salinity, temperature and humidity at depths up to 40 metres (120 feet).

The probe delivers a deep understanding of your soil offering flexibility and precision monitoring at multiple depths.

EnviroSCAN can be used for vineyards, tree crops, research projects, irrigated and dryland crops as well as environmental and landscape management.

Features

Probe Features

  • Select desired sensors to measure soil moisture, with optional salinity and/or temperature and access tube humidity
  • Up to 16 sensors at 10 cm intervals, with adjustable depth placement
  • Monitoring from shallow depths (0–10 cm) to deep installations (up to 40 meters).
  • Flexible probe lengths, customised to suit the application (probe length adjustable in the field).
  • The top of the access tube is sealed with two different top cap designs, depending on application: flat cap or screw cap.
  • In-built probe orientation and depth settings to enhance sensor repeatability.
  • RTV silicon conformal coating for extra circuit protection
  • Full serviceability. You can swap and adjust sensors as needed.
  • Flexible connectivity for wide range of data retrieval options.
  • Soil specific calibrations can be applied to individual sensors.

Access Tube Features

  • Protects sensors from direct soil contact, significantly increasing sensor life
  • Quick, easy, undisturbed installation option
  • Made for long-term use
  • Choice of base to suit predrilled, slurry or self-tapped hole
  • Protruding, tightly sealed screw cap OR ground-level, watertight flat cap (see below)
  • Improved sensor accuracy due to precise wall thickness and diameter
  • Easy access for in-field service and maintenance, avoids removing probe and affecting historical data integrity

Benefits

  • Reliable performance.
  • Get the precise data needed for making clear-cut soil decisions.
  • Provides great flexibility for precision monitoring of water and salinity at multiple depths in a soil profile.
  • Widely used in all forms of agriculture (irrigated and dryland), environmental applications, research and education, as well as turf, parks and gardens.

Mr Peter Buss

The top of the access tube is sealed with one of two different top cap designs, depending on application.

EnviroSCAN Screw Cap

  • Top cap protrudes above the soil surface
  • Easy to find and readily accessible
  • Tightly sealed with a rubber O-ring
  • Simply unscrews, giving easy access to the probe for servicing

EnviroSCAN Flat Cap

  • Allows for the probe to sit flush with the ground surface
  • Water-tight, 3 point sealing design
  • Provides ready access to the probe for servicing
  • Avoids potentially costly damage from machinery

Probes are inserted into customised 56.5mm diameter access tubes to allow for:

• Improved sensor accuracy through precise wall thickness and diameter of access tube.

• Protection of sensors by avoiding direct soil contact.

• Specific sealing to ensure long-term operation.

• Full in-field serviceability without impacting on data integrity.

Installation of access tubes is carried out using specialised tools to ensure minimum soil disturbance during installation and hence measurement of an undisturbed soil profile

  • Probe and access tube.
  • Probe Features
  • Select desired sensors to measure soil moisture, with optional salinity and/or temperature and access tube humidity
  • Easily adjust length in-field to suit application
  • Up to 16 sensors at 10cm intervals
  • Flexible depth placement from 0.1 to 40 metres
  • Inbuilt probe orientation and depth settings to increase sensor repeatability
  • RTV silicon conformal coating for extra circuit protection
  • Easy to service in-field

The award winning EnviroSCAN probe is the flagship product of Sentek. It provides the user with great flexibility for precision monitoring of water and salinity at multiple depths in a soil profile
