The DF4 and DD-L1 dendrometers from Ecomatik are renowned and highly precise measuring instruments with micrometer accuracy. These electronic dendrometers are used to continuously record changes in the size of different parts of plants (e.g. trunk, branch, root and fruit of trees, as well as herbaceous plants).
The micrometer-accurate dendrometer data obtained provides valuable information on vitality and growth dynamics, as well as on the water status of the plant. They can be used under all growth conditions (tropics, polar regions, underground, under snow or underwater). Their wide range of application, reliability and low maintenance, as well as extremely low power consumption make Ecomatik dendrometers a versatile and cost-effective tool in the fields of ecology and agriculture.
Pre-configured for your convenience
Almost all Ecomatik dendrometers in the four wire + shield versions with differential voltage output are compatible with your Reporter. Crodeon offers the following models in a pre-configured plug & play package with M12 connector, with the goal of making the technology accessible not just for researchers but also for growers.
- The DD-L series dendrometers are used for high-precision and continuous measurement of stem diameter changes. These devices are suitable for long-term application in outdoor conditions.
- The DF4 fruit dendrometer offers easy installation and maintenance-free measurement through a claw mechanism, for large and fast-growing fruits such as apple, orange, peach, tomato and many others.
As with all sensors on our shop, your Reporter can operate fully on solar power, using our 10W solar panel. Even on a real-time measurement interval no additional power supply is required to continuously transmit your dendrometer data to the cloud.
