Diameter Dendrometer Root/Underwater : DD-RO

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.

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
