New Product Release - The AquaProbe

Chicago, IL, July 09, 2016 --( The James Instruments Inc. AquaProbe utilizes the latest electronic technology to measure the quantity of water within in soils. The T-S-30 using a high frequency Microwave Sensor, samples a large volume of material, approximately 50 mm x 50 mm x 100 mm instantaneously. Changes in this electromagnetic field are directly proportional to the dielectric constant of the material through which it passes. As the dielectric constant of water is almost two orders of magnitude greater than most non-metallic materials, variations in this parameter can be correlated to the moisture content. After extensive testing of various types of soils, relationships between the change in this field and moisture content have been established. These relationships have been digitized and implemented using the latest in micro-computer technology, thereby allowing the user the direct readout of moisture content in soils. Storage capacity allows up to 10 user defined modes to for different types of soils.
