Before Dr. Liu, plant scientist and founder of ECOMATIK, lay the immensely valuable capacity to understand how plants immediately respond to their environment. This untapped potential gave Dr. Liu the idea to apply modern sensor technology to enable direct, automated measurement of crucial plant physiological parameters, precisely and with high temporal resolution.
Dr. Liu’s vision led to the founding of ECOMATIK almost 30 years ago. Nowadays, this perspective complies with the broad scientific consensus and the application of IoT sensor networks that feed real-time data on plant and climate parameters into intelligent algorithms of smart farming service providers.
With customers in more than 60 countries, ECOMATIK GmbH presently represents one of the world's leading manufacturers of plant sensors such as dendrometers, transpiration, and foliage temperature sensors. In deserts and rain forests, in polar regions and the tropics, ECOMATIK sensors are valuable measurement tools in bio-, geo- or environmental sciences as well as in practical applications (agriculture, forestry, horticulture, viticulture, etc.).
Our open framework enables us to integrate our own products in addition to those from other manufacturers for use in complex, customer-specific measurement and data systems (e.g. plant and environmental sensors, image & video, remote data transmission, online data visualization, etc.).

The DC series dendrometers are used for high-precision and continuous measurement of changes in stem circumference. These devices are suitable for long-term use in outdoor conditions. Due to their extremely low power consumption, Ecomatik dendrometers are ideal for battery-powered solutions, e.g., in IoT applications.
As highly precise and robust measuring instruments, electronic dendrometers are used to continuously record changes in the size of different parts of plants (e.g. trunk, branch, root and fruit of trees, as well as herbaceous plants). The micrometer-accurate dendrometer data obtained provides valuable information on vitality and growth dynamics, as well as on the water status of the plant.
The DD-L series dendrometers are used for high-precision and continuous measurement of stem diameter changes. These devices are suitable for long-term application in outdoor conditions. Due to their extremely low power consumption, Ecomatik dendrometers are ideal for battery-powered solutions, e.g., in IoT applications.
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.
