Take soil measurements anywhere for those applications not requiring a permanent soil monitoring system. Your Apple or Android device communicates wirelessly with the HydraProbe using an ad-hoc wi-fi radio link.
Simply insert the probe into the soil, and tap on the “Sample” button in the HydraMon app. The HydraGO Field Version communicates wirelessly with your smartphone or tablet using an ad-hoc wi-fi network created by the device itself.
The HydraGO Field Version is available with and without a survey-quality, sub-meter GPS receiver. When using a unit without an integrated GPS, the (less accurate) position measured by the smartphone is used when logging data.
The app will display soil moisture content, temperature, conductivity, and dielectric permittivity on-screen for immediate viewing. The GPS location, date and time of each measurement is recorded along with the soil measurement data. All data can be saved and emailed as a .CSV file for analysis in Excel.
The HydraGO Field Version features a rugged, anodized aluminum housing that contains a rechargeable battery that powers the connected HydraProbe and built-in wi-fi radio. It comes with a carry strap for easy on-the-go measurements.
