Hydro-Probe Digital Moisture Sensor
The Hydro-Probe is a rugged, digital, microwave sensor designed to measure moisture in flowing materials. Typical applications include moisture measurement in abrasive materials such as sand, aggregates and concrete.
- Body: Stainless Steel
- Faceplate: Ceramic
The sensor must be placed in the flow of material.
Bins and Silos:- Install in the neck of a bin or underneath the gate. Standard and Extension Mounting Sleeves are available to suit different bin widths.
Conveyors:- Secure in the flow of material
2 Configurable 0-20mA or 4-20mA current loop source available for moisture and temperature. May also be converted to 0-10V DC.
2 configurable digital signals are provided for batch average start/stop or for moisture / temperature multiplexing purposes.
Digital (Serial) Communications
Opto-isolated RS485 2-wire port. Uses Hydro-Com communications protocol for read/write access to sensor parameters and values. Ethernet and USB interfaces are also available.
The sensor will measure up to saturation of material.
Approximately 75-100mm dependent on material.
0-60 degrees C. The sensor will not measure in ice.
Outputs are updated 25 times per second.
The sensor is fitted with a 10-way MIL-SPEC connector. A 4, 10 or 25 metre, 6 twisted pair cable pre-assembled for connection to a waterproof junction box is available.
+15Vdc to +30Vdc. 4W
