CP200 Cone Penetrometer

The RIMIK CP200 is the instrument of choice for quick, accurate and easy collection of cone-index data. The RIMIK CP200 is an essential tool for non-intensive soil studies involving compaction, trafficability and moisture distribution.

The RIMIK CP200 incorporates many of the features of its big brothers, the CP 300 and CP40II, but has a smaller, non-graphical display, smaller memory and does not have GPS or data grouping capabilities.
What it DOES offer is ultra sonic depth sensing, NiMh rechargeable batteries, internal logging and USB connectivity, all in a small lightweight enclosure with stainless steel shaft and cone. The shaft is the same two-piece unit included in all current cone penetrometers models. The RIMIK CP200 is stored in an easy to carry, durable fitted case.

The RIMIK CP200 Cone Penetrometer is used to measure soil density and hardness where a detailed study of the data is not the highest priority.

The RIMIK CP200 has been designed for use by those who only require quick point and shoot values of soil compaction. It suits anyone who wants a comparative number and is not overly concerned about a high degree of accuracy.

It measures and records cone index values based on the load required to force a cone through the soil. The instrument will record profile data at 25mm increments to a maximum depth of 750mm.

The instrument is designed to measure soil pressures up to 7500KPa at a resolution of approximately 50KPa. Like all of our cone penetrometer instruments, it is built with ASAE S313.3 feb99 in mind.

Up to 50 full depth insertions may be recorded and stored in memory. Although limited, the battery capacity is designed to allow an operator to undertake 50 insertions one after the other. While the instrument can last up to 150 insertions, the RIMIK CP200 comes with a car charger so that it can be recharged in the field in a relatively short period of time. This allows you to keep on the go from site to site.

Profile results can be viewed on the LCD screen or downloaded to a computer or laptop via the serial port with the use of the RIMIK Penetrometer Reader Software.

At a fraction of the price of other logging cone penetrometers, the RIMIK CP200 is a great instrument for farmers, agronomists, green keepers, race track curators, sporting bodies and temporary road builders. The RIMIK CP200 is an easy to use, lightweight and suitably accurate Cone Penetrometer.
