SOILVUE10

Volumetric water content, permittivity, electrical conductivity, and temperature Volumetric Water Content: ±1.5% typical with most soils

Soils with high organic matter (> 12% soil organic carbon) or high clay content (> 45% clay) may need a soil-specific calibration due to the dispersive nature of these materials.

HS2P

Interchangeable sensors; can swap the 12 cm and 20 cm sensors with the reader.

CS650-L

Not interchangeable

HS2P

Volumetric water content of porous media (such as soil)

CS650-L

Soil electrical conductivity (EC), relative dielectric permittivity, volumetric water content, soil temperature
  • Volumetric Water Content: ±1% (with soil-specific calibration)
  • Volumetric Water Content: ±3% (typical with factory VWC model) where solution EC < 3 dS/m

HS2P

  • Probe Options: 3% typical (Accuracy assumes solution EC of < 6.5 dS/m when using the CS659P 12-cm probe.)
  • Probe Options: 3% typical (Accuracy assumes solution EC of < 4 dS/m when using the CS658P 20-cm probe.)
HS2P is a complete system.
