Field Scout Handheld Digital Moisture Sensor (TDR 100)The Field Scout Digital Moisture Sensor allows you to monitor and record soil moisture quickly and accurately with TDR technology (time-domain measurement technology).

When precision irrigation decisions count, the Field Scout Digital Moisture Sensor offers turfgrass managers a tool to eliminate the guesswork. Based on proven time-domain measurement technology, this portable unit accurately measure soil moisture across the full range of soil moisture conditions.

The Field Scout Digital Moisture Sensor has two volumetric water content modes; one for standard soils and one for higher clay soils. In volumetric water content (VWC) mode, the meter converts a measured electrical signal into percent soil moisture content using an equation valid over a wide range of mineral soils. In irrigation mode, the meter displays a relative water content (RWC) on a scale of 0 to 100 corresponding to a user-defined upper and lower soil moisture reference level.

Hand-held design allows for easy transpiration and storage. Units connected by 5ft. Cable. Measures in less than one second. This meter has no data logging or geo-referencing capability. For those features, please take a look at our FieldScout TDR 300 Soil Moisture Meter.

NEW FEATURE ADDED IN 2012 - The TDR family of meters now includes the option to perform a calibration on an individual meter. The calibration is done in 2 media; air and distilled water. This new feature took effect with firmware version 6.5 and is included with units shipped after January 1, 2012. Meters with firmware versions earlier than v. 6.5 can be upgraded by purchasing and installing an updated microcontroller chip (Item #MSFS-Chip-Upgrade).
