Most TDR sensors require a specialised interface, such as the Campbell Scientific TDR100, to convert the electromagnetic pulse from a time domain reflectometry (TDR) measurement to a meaningful value such as dielectric permittivity or volumetric water content.

The TDR-Vdc soil moisture probe removes the need to use the expensive, specialised interfaces and allows the scientist and engineer to connect the sensor directly to their data logger. The TDR-Vdc has an analog voltage output and can therefore be connected to most commonly available data logging platforms.

The TDR-Vdc soil moisture probe is also embedded with a temperature sensor for accurate measurements of soil, substrate or materials temperature.
