Measuring METER tensiometers with non-METER control and data acquisition systems

METER designs and manufactures a range of high-quality tensiometers for the measurement of soil water potential. The tensiometer cables are designed for interface with the METER “Infield 7” readout device. However, there are applications where long-term logging is desired and therefore a need to connect these tensiometers to data loggers other than the Infield 7. This paper addresses the capabilities of the METER tensiometers with respect to their ability to interface with non-METER data loggers.

With this paper, you will discover:

  • Potential data acquisition pitfalls
  • Voltage cautions
  • Example programs (EdLog, CR Basic)
