The sensor measures the amount of water that evaporates from the surface unit. Parameters obtained by the sensor are important to assess when and how much irrigation is required.
E-100 meter evaporation and an evaporation vessel:
- height: 27 1/2 inches
- diameter: 8 inches
- float: 4 inch diameter plastic
- accuracy: 0.25%
- rotation: continuous
- resistance: 1000 Ohm
- temperature range: -40 ° C – +60 ° C
This sensor, ie. a device requires the presence of a continuous regulated flow of water. The sensor / device measures the drop in the water level in the unit area due to temperature, UV radiation, wind and relative humidity. As the water evaporates from the cylinder sensor / device it is necessary to ensure regulated and adding a known amount of water. Regulating the management of this sensor / device can be carried out only data loggers that have output control regulating valve for the flow of water. This sensor is very important to assess the needs of irrigation.
