Trase Soil Moisture Analyser




Sub Category:

Soil Water

Product Group:


•Measures volumetric water content of soil.

•Time Doman Reflectometry yields an unsurpassed level of accuracy.

•Direct readout of volumetric water content.

•Rugged, Waterproof and portable.

•Graph display in-depth soil studies physics studies. 

The Trase system uses Time Domain Reflectometry (TDR) to measure the volumetric water content of soils and other moist media. Waveguides for depth measurement ranging from 15cm to 70cm are available. The volumetric moisture content is displayed, and the graph of the TDR pulse can also be displayed. The moisture reading and the graph of the TDR pulse can be tagged for identification and stored for later analysis. The Trase system can be programmed to auto log moisture readings. All stored data can be transferred via an RS 232 port to external printer or computer for further processing.

The Trase is designed for rugged field use and is environmentally sealed to prevent damage to Sensitive electronic components.
