DD-RO Diameter Dendrometer Root/Underwater

The DD-RO series dendrometer is used for the high-precision and continuous measurement of plant diameter changes. This device is suitable for long-term application in outdoor conditions (underground and underwater). Due to their extremely low power consumption, Ecomatik dendrometers are ideal for battery-powered solutions, e.g., in IoT applications.The DRO dendrometer is specially designed to measure roots, aquatic plants and installations with ground contact, e.g. on ground cover plants. Sealed by a soft, yet resilient rubber coating protects the entire sensor and the sensor rod from the ingress of water and particles; the device is water- and dustproof. An additional metal bracket protects the signal-receiving sensor from pressure that may be exerted when buried under soil insubterranean installations. The specific weight of the entire device is similar to that of water. In underwater installations, the device’s buoyancy compensates for its own weight so that no additional load is exerted on the measurement tool.

Advantages of the DD-RO

  • Waterproof, suitable for subterranean, aboveground, and underwater applications
  • Low pressure at the measuring point
  • No additional load on underwater measuring objects
  • Ideal for long-term measurements

Limits of the DD-RO dendrometer

  • Only suitable for diameters smaller than 2 cm (for root diameters> 2 cm on request)

Accessories & Compatible Products

Data loggers

From small and compact to an extensive measuring network, Ecomatik offers complete system solutions for sensor data acquisition in any desired size:

Note

The output signal of all Ecomatik dendrometer models is an analogue DC voltage. Our dendrometers are therefore compatible with almost all common data loggers and microcontrollers with analogue voltage input channels (e.g. also Arduino). If you are unsure about the compatibility of an existing data logger, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Like so many things, everything started with an idea ...

In the case of the plant scientist and founder of ECOMATIK, Dr. Liu, it was the idea that modern measurement technology should enable crucial plant physiological parameters to be measured directly, precisely and with high temporal resolution on the plant itself. It was obvious to him that there is an information potential of immense value in the detailed understanding of immediate reactions of plants to their environment...
