SoilVUE 10 A Complete Soil Profiler
Economical, easy-to-install, excellent soil contact
Accurate TDR-based soil water content, electrical conductivity, and temperature measurements from multiple depths
weather applications water applications energy applications gas flux & turbulence applications infrastructure applications soil applications

Overview

The SoilVUE™10 Soil Profiler measures volumetric water content (VWC), electrical conductivity (EC), and temperature at six depths (over 0.5 m) or nine depths (over 1 m), depending on the option selected. This profiler is designed for environmental researchers and environmental monitoring network operators, and is ideal for long-term outdoor operation and for applications that require highly accurate measurements.

The SoilVUE™10 Profiler is powered by Campbell TrueWave™TDR. Wave guides are seamlessly added to the threaded design, improving sensor contact with the soil and reducing errors due to air-gaps introduced during installation. The threaded design also allows it to screw into a hole created by a standard 2 in. hand auger. This simple installation procedure reduces cost, complexity, and disturbance of the soil.

Benefits and Features

  • One instrument to measure VWC, EC, and temperature at six depths over 0.5 m or nine depths over 1.0 m
  • Campbell Scientific’s proprietary TrueWave™TDR technology produces a smooth, high-resolution signal
  • Quick and low-impact installation
  • Threaded design with wave guides built into the threads improves sensor contact with the soil, preventing error caused by preferential flow of water around the sensor and air gaps near wave guides
  • Installation uses a standard 2 in. hand auger, eliminating the need for excavation machinery or expensive proprietary tools
  • Detachable cable facilitates field replacement
  • Burial method provides deeper measurements and avoids damage from farm implements
  • SDI-12 digital output that is measurable by most Campbell Scientific dataloggers
  • Designed for long-term outdoor operation

Detailed Description

The SoilVUE™10 consists of TDR circuitry connected to a series of six or nine helical wave guides that make up part of the overall threaded design. The TDR circuitry generates a short rise time electromagnetic pulse that is applied to the helical wave guides. The elapsed two-way travel time of the applied pulse is used to calculate the dielectric permittivity of the surrounding media and determine the volumetric water content using a mixing model.
