"Micro.exe (1.6 MB)" - operational software desinged for use of Stevens' Hydra Reader. This is a DOS-based application that can be run under a Windows environment for downloading collected data from the handheld Hydra Reader to your PC.
The HYD_LOG.EXE (44 KB) is the software program that does the data reduction algorithm on the data in an ASCII file downloaded from the Hydra Logger or Stevens Hand Held Data Reader and converts the information into the complex soil moisture.
Note: version 2.7 now supports the loam calibration setting.
HYD_FILE.EXE is a software program is designed to operate on a PC and allows the input of raw Hydra Probe data, outputting a file consisting of the processed data. This program is primarily designed to allow the user to quickly process large amounts of data from automated data collection systems.
The HYDRA.EXE data reduction software program enables user to manually convert four voltages to complex soil moisture reading. HYDRA.EXE will prompt the user for a soil type and the four measured voltages V1, V2, V3, V4s. The program will then generate the following output, real and imaginary dielectric constant, temperature, temperature corrected real and imaginary dielectric constants, water content, soil salinity, soil conductivity, temperature corrected soil conductivity, and temperature corrected soil water conductivity.
