Description

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).
