PICO-BT Soil Moisture Meter

Accurate - robust- wireless
The innovative solution for mobile moisture measurement

Use PICO-BT with Bluetooth technology to control your PICO sensor and save measurement data on any commercially available PDA with Bluetooth and Windows Mobile. PICO-BT is specially designed for heavy duty applications and functions even in the most extreme conditions. The integrated Class 2 Bluetooth module enables you to easily obtain a range of 10 metres.

The internal rechargeable battery is also the power supply for your PICO sensor. Up to 1500 measurements are possible when fully charged depending on the application profile. A quick look at the 4 LEDs on the face of the instrument always keeps you informed about which actions are being performed at a particular time. Operating PICO-BT couldn’t be easier. The PICO-BT module is immediately ready to use at the touch of a button.

Software PICO-TALK

Rapid and simple measurements
Simply insert your TRIME-PICO sensor into the ground and start the measurement process by pressing your PICO-TALK software’s “MEAS” button. You receive an accurate moisture reading within only 2 seconds. In the case of buried sensors you also receive a reading for the soil temperature. The readings are saved directly in the system along with the time and date, enabling you to track what was measured when.

Save readings reliably
You also have the option of giving a specific designation to measuring locations and saving the reading under this name.

Customised calibration
TRIME-PICO sensors are supplied with precise soil calibration and can be used straightaway. If you prefer, you can perform the calibration process yourself and save the results in the sensor. PICO-TALK recognises the saved calibrations in the sensor and displays them in PICOTALK for easy selection.

Effortless export of readings
Do you want to use your readings in other systems? No problem. Your
saved data can be exported easily in any application.
