NeuLog™ Soil Moisture Sensor

Item # 369658

Measure the water content of soils with the NeuLog™ Soil Moisture Sensor, a unique tensiometer. Fill the tensiometer with water and place in soil. If the soil is dry, water flows out of the tube through the ceramic holes by diffusion, creating a slight vacuum. When the soil is moist, the vacuum in the tensiometer pulls water into the tensiometer, decreasing the vacuum. Requires connection hardware (item #369733, #369500, #369510, or #369520, sold separately) to operate.

Smart, easy, and affordable digital data collection technology for now and the future

The next generation of scientific data collection sensors is now available--easier to use, more versatile, and with a lower cost than any other data collection system. For both beginners and advanced users, the NeuLog™ data logger sensors offer a simple and flexible solution to collect and analyze the most complex data from your science laboratory experiments or field activities.

Measure the water content of soils with the NeuLog™ Soil Moisture Sensor, a unique tensiometer. A tensiometer measures the pressure change in a closed tube with a special ceramic tip. Fill the tensiometer with water and place in the soil. If the soil is dry, water flows out of the tube through the ceramic holes by diffusion, and a slight vacuum is created in the tensiometer. When the soil is moist, the vacuum in the tensiometer pulls water into the tensiometer, and the vacuum decreases. This is why soil moisture is measured in pressure level. Primarily used for experiments in biology and environmental science.

Note: Requires connection hardware, which is sold separately. For hardwired setup, use the NeuLog™ PC Starter Connection Bundle (item #369500) or NeuLog™ USB Bridge Module (item #369733). For wireless setup, use the NeuLog™ Wi-Fi™ Starter Connection Bundle (item #369510). For stand-alone setup, use the NeuLog™ Graphic Display Bundle (item #369520).

Introducing the NeuLog™ Probeware System—Affordable Digital Tools to Inspire Inquiry

Neulog Probeware

NeuLog™ platform is a complete line of innovative sensors, communication modules, and browser-based software. No external computer is required, and each sensor contains a durable probe that collects data, a microprocessor that digitizes data, and flash memory that stores the data—all in 1 smart unit. To save the data for reports or further analysis, simply connect the NeuLog™ sensor to a computer using a USB cable or wireless RF module or to any wireless device with Wi-Fi™ capability, including PCs, Macs, smartphones, and tablets. Best of all, the NeuLog™ software is free, browser-based, and accessible from any computer or wireless device. Smart, easy, and the next generation in data collection, the NeuLog™ system works with any existing or future computing device that can connect.

The NeuLog™ system is right for your classroom because it offers the best features of any data collection system:

  • Simple—A true plug-and-play system that requires no selection of sensors or calibration or setup time. Just plug the sensors together and into a power source, and start collecting data. It really is that simple.
  • Flexible—The collected data can be sent to a computer via a USB cable or wireless RF (radio frequency) connection, any Wi-Fi™ device (e.g., computer, tablet, or smartphone), or viewed on a portable color graphics display monitor.
  • Powerful—Up to 5 sensors can be connected together and data collected simultaneously. Each sensor has enough flash memory to store up to 5 experiments.
  • Affordable—The software is free and browser-based; no computers or interface systems are required; and the next computer or operating system will not make it obsolete.
  • Portable—The NeuLog™ rechargeable battery pack powers remote data collection.
  • Convenient—True plug-and-play sensors start collecting data in seconds or uploading saved experiments from a computer.
  • Fun—With minimal setup and easy data collection, students quickly start exploring and explaining scientific principles.
