  • Response of the ECH2O Sensors to Variation in Water Content, Soil Type, and Solution Electrical Conductivity (.pdf)
    Researchers familiar with commercial water content probes will often ask three questions when approached with a newly developed dielectric sensor: what is the accuracy of the instrument, how does it react to differing soil textures and electrical conductivity, and how much does it cost? In fact
  • Response of the ECH2O EC-10 and EC-20 Soil Moisture Probes to Variation in Water Content, Soil Type, and Solution Electrical Conductivity (.pdf)
    Researchers familiar with commercial water content probes will often ask three questions when approached with a newly developed dielectric sensor: what is the accuracy of the instrument, how does it react to differing soil textures and electrical conductivity, and how much does it cost? In fact
  • Common Failure Modes for Test Probes (.pdf)
    High electrical resistance between the probe tip and the contact surface is the most common failure mode for probes.
  • Installing & Replacing X Probes and Terminations (.pdf)
    The X Probe Terminations are installed in the Back plate of the fixture and are used to adjust the set height of the probe while providing the electrical connection from the probe to the fixture wiring. The X Probe Socketless Series is available in two Termination types: wired and wireless
  • Socket Resistance Comparison (.pdf)
    This test measures the electrical resistance on the portion of the socket, which is in the primary current path. The resistance is measured as shown in the sketch. Note that secondary parallel paths (i.e. contact between probe tube and socket bottom, probe tube and socket top) if they occur, would
  • Understanding Non Repeat
    Gauge R&R (repeatability & reproducibility) is one of the most important aspects of a gauging fixture. Good repeatability is one of the most difficult functions to achieve when building a gauging probe, which is why Solartron has invested so much in the manufacture of bearings and shielding against
  • EGPIC: An Automated Insect Census-Taker
    In their Gainsville laboratory, entomologist Nancy Epsky and electrical engineer Dennis Shuman test EGPIC probes. Displayed on the computer screen are the total number of insect counts, time elapsed since the last count, total time the probe was active, and status of the probe. Stored grains
  • Monitoring System Counts Insects, Identifies Species
    Look out, grain-munching insects! A new, enhanced version of the world's first automated insect-monitoring system recently hit the market and it's looking for you. and patented in 1997, the original Electronic Grain Probe Insect Counter (EGPIC) was a major improvement over other grain probe traps
