Description

Sentek’s SoluSAMPLER assists to monitor salt and nutrient movement in the root zone.

The sampler draws moisture from the surrounding soil and stores it in an inert ceramic cup for collection and analysis. The ceramic cup is available in two different types: light flow which is suitable for most applications and high flow which can be used in light texture and moist soils and for rapid sampling.

SoluSAMPLER can be used for vineyards, irrigated and dryland cropping, tree crops, research projects as well as environmental and landscape management.

Features:

– Incorporates SARDI soil water extraction technologies.
– A custom designed ceramic cup, available with different pore sizes to suit the soil type it is used in.
– Once under vacuum, the extractor draws moisture from the surrounding soil and stores it in the inert ceramic cup awaiting collection and analysis.
– The solution extracted into the cup retains its ionic integrity as the ceramic does not influence the solutes.
– The ceramic cup is glued to a length of 40 millimetre PVC conduit, housing an extraction tube with a two way stopcock.
– Complements probes with TriSCAN sensors, enabling precise site specific analysis of soil pore water salinity content.
– Soil pore water samples can be extracted from the ceramic cup using a syringe and analyzed using a Portable Electrical Conductivity (EC) Meter, nitrate strips or laboratory analysis.

Benefits:

– Improve crop quality and yield by using soil solution monitoring to track salinity and nitrate levels in the soil.
– Reduce the risk of harmful salt accumulation in the root zone due to irrigation.
– Measurements can detect salt before visual symptoms are seen.
– Minimise the risk of serious health consequences caused by nitrates leaching into groundwater.

Soil Moisture Sensors & Telemetry

Australian based Sentek Technologies has revolutionised soil moisture, fertilizer and salinity management with its range of sensing solutions

Sentek’s technology is used to simply visualise the dynamics of the plant-water-salt-soil-atmosphere interactions. Irrigators use these solutions to manage their day-to-day irrigation, fertigation and salinity requirements. The products also have applications in agriculture, turf, mining and environmental management.

HydroTerra has been distributing Senteks products for more than a decade, installing, configuring and supporting our clients to get the data that they require.

Sentek’s products are used in agriculture, horticulture, viticulture, wastewater management, research, mining and environmental industries around the world.

In the year 2000, Sentek began to expand its product range from its original, continuous soil moisture monitoring solution EnviroSCAN, to the release of the portable Diviner 2000 system. Sentek then released the EasyAG probe, a slim-line probe specifically designed for shallow rooted crops. The company also shifted its focus from solely proprietary products to having an open integration platform, working with other technology companies to provide complete solutions to a range of different markets. Since then Sentek has continued to release a range of new products.

The TriSCAN sensor is a revolutionary sensor with the capability to measure salinity and soil moisture in one sensor. TriSCAN coupled with Sentek’s IrriMAX software, is the most comprehensive irrigation and fertigation management tool ever developed by Sentek. Through the IrriMAX software and GPRS/3G telemetry of Sentek PLUS solutions, users can now access their data any time, anywhere in the world with internet access.

The release of Sentek Solo, a battery powered, logging probe with in-field download, has opened up yet another alternative in continuous soil moisture and salinity monitoring. Sentek MULTI expands on the Sentek PLUS solution, allowing multiple probes and other sensors such as rain gauges and temperature sensors to be connected to the one telemetry device.
