DS Logger 500 with penetrating probe and sensor of continuous measurement of the soil moisture and electrical conductivity

DS Logger 500 is a cross-functional device for measuring  of soil compaction, temperature, moisture and soil conductivity (with the possibility of AFS sensors connecting), which helps identify and resolve not only the soil compaction problem, but also hold a general soil research to improve crop yields. The device can penetrate to a depth of 45 cm, and measure electrical conductivity and soil moisture up to 60 cm.

The accuracy and speed of data fixing at different depths, allows you to make the maximum of measurements with the least amount of time. Two types of tips - 1/2" and 3/4" for different types of soil, sensor of continuous measurement of the soil moisture and electrical conductivity are available.

Clear and intuitive device menu will facilitate the working process. The convenient settings menu allows you to select the tip type, the appropriate measurement units, menu language. Adding user soils, the display brightness setting and file management are available. Maps and graphs of measurements provide not only basic information, but also help you better analyze the data obtained during the measurement before you transfer It to your personal AFS Account; compare data taken at different periods, but in the same area; monitor the problem points on the map.

With DS Logger 500 you can assign different types of tasks to workers at the relevant points and track the correctness of their performance. The internal memory of the measuring device can record data, eliminating the need for manual notes. With the integrated GPS module, coordinates, time and date of measurements are automatically recorded. The device menu is available in four languages: Ukrainian, Russian, English, and German.

DS Logger 500 can synchronize files, upload them to the server, where they can be managed in  personal AFS Account; transfer tasks and field data, update the software via wireless and through a USB connection.
