Enabling better global research outcomes in soil, plant & environmental monitoring.

5000 Pore Water Salinity Sensor

Comes calibrated, with 4' long lead.
The Model 5000 Salinity Sensor consists of a pair of electrodes embedded in a fine-textured porous ceramic element. The water saturating the ceramic element remains in chemical equilibrium with the soil. The sensor is spring-loaded to ensure good hydraulic contact between the sensor and the soil.

Weight: 0.19 lbs (0.09 kgs)
Dimensions: 10 x 3 x 3 inches
