TDR soil probe
The most advanced and precise Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) probe available for scientists and engineers. The FP/MTS Field TDR Probe is designed to measure soil volumetric water content, temperature and electrical conductivity (EC/salinity) simultaneously.
The FP/MTS is ideally suited to the field but it can also be deployed in laboratory, soil columns, and glasshouse projects.
- Operates with FP/mts field meter and TDR/MUX/mpts laboratory meter
- Applicable for field use or monitoring purposes
- Variable length probes are available for easy field installation and maintenance.
