While soil moisture monitoring is often thought of as a water-saving technology, it also provides other significant benefits — for example, better crop irrigation and nutrition.
VEGAPULS 64 is a radar level sensor for liquids, operating at a frequency of 80 GHz. The product features high dynamics and good-quality focusing, enabling media with poor reflective properties, ie, low dielectric constant, to be measured.
A wildeye soil moisture system, recently installed at Wembley Golf Course in the Town of Cambridge, is being used to fine-tune irrigation and demonstrate efficiency.
Olives are a hardy, drought-tolerant crop that recovers quickly from water stress. So why use soil moisture monitoring on olives?
US researchers have developed a way to inform beachgoers in a timely manner as to whether or not the water is clean enough to swim in.
The OTT PLS-C unit provides basic water quality indicators by measuring water level, temperature and conductivity. The probe is suitable for measuring both surface water and groundwater.
Analysis and evaluation of streamflow patterns over time is a vital component of the State of the Environment report by the Department of the Environment. The Bureau of Meteorology has now released a web visualisation tool that makes this task much easier.
Suitable for the treatment of drinking water, water in beverage and food production and process water in various industries, the Sigrist AquaDMS Disinfection Measuring System helps technicians effectively optimise the chlorination of water.
Designed for industrial processes, manufacturing operations, pumps, compressed air, gas compressors and HVAC systems requiring flow assurance and alarming, the compact SIL 2 compliant FS10i Flow Switch/Monitor from Fluid Components International (FCI) features good performance and operation.
Water engineers responsible for municipal or industrial water and wastewater will find the single- or dual-parameter CA-6 UV family of spectroscopic analysers from Electro-Chemical Devices (ECD) can monitor any two selected parameters in separate measurement ranges for ammonia, nitrate or chemical oxygen demand (COD 254 nm).
Today's technology is growing at a rapid pace. While pressure and flow monitoring is still a very current issue, the need to understand and manage more water quality parameters has seen the development of analytical sensors using GPRS/GSM technologies.
The TOPAZ analyser is designed for automatic and continuous monitoring of several parameters amongst a large range of chemical compounds in all types of water. The product carries out versatile water quality monitoring using a combination of analytical methods (colorimetry, titrimetry and potentiometry or selected absorption).
The Hydrolab HL4 is a multiparameter water quality instrument from OTT Hydromet. Its ease of use and metadata are said to produce water quality data the user can trust.
Bürkert's Type 8905 Online Analysis System has been designed for the continuous monitoring of treated and untreated waters and storage of the most important measurement parameters before water enters the supply network.
Capable of managing up to four separate sensors, the BB2 controller is reverse-compatible with existing Cerlic equipment and can directly replace a line-voltage unit as part of an upgrade, with no further hardware required.
