The pilot rod is used with a slide hammer (SLIDE-HAMMER) for quick and easy deployment of HOBOnet Multi-Depth Soil Moisture Sensors (RXW-GPX-XXX). By creating a hole with the same profile and size of the soil moisture sensor being deployed, this tool eliminates the need to excavate and backfill holes. The pilot rod threads onto the slide hammer, which drives the rod into the soil, creating the required profile. After removing the rod, the soil moisture sensor can be pushed into the soil easily. Once the sensor is deployed, the soil will relax around it, filling in any gaps and establishing the contact needed for accurate soil moisture measurements.
Onset offers two pilot rod options: the PILOT-ROD4 (28”) for use with three- and four-segment HOBOnet Multi-Depth Soil Moisture Sensors (RXW-GP3 and RXW-GP4), and the PILOT-ROD6 (40”) for use with six-segment HOBOnet Multi-Depth Soil Moisture Sensors (RXW-GP6).
The slide hammer is used with a pilot rod (PILOT-RODx) for quick and easy deployment of HOBOnet Multi-Depth Soil Moisture Sensors (RXW-GPX-XXX). The slide hammer forces the pilot rod into the soil to create the profile needed for the soil moisture sensor.
The HOBOnet Wireless Repeater is designed to work with the HOBOnet Wireless Sensor Network. The repeater is ideal when there is an obstruction between wireless sensors and the RX Stations or for extending the transmission range of wireless sensors in the network.
The RX3000 Water Level Sensor Module (RXMOD-W1) offers users the ability to monitor water level, pressure, and temperature, as well as barometric pressure, with the HOBO RX3000 Remote Monitoring Station. It is configured through HOBOlink, Onset’s cloud-based software. For water level applications, a HOBO RX3000 station, water level sensor cable (CABLE-RWLMOD-XXX), and water level sensor (MX2001-0X-S or MX2001-0X-Ti-S) are required.
The water level sensor cable provides the connection between the HOBO RX3000 Remote Monitoring Station and the water level sensor. A HOBO RX3000 station, a water level sensor module (RXMOD-W1), and a water level sensor (MX2001-0x-S or MX2001-0x-Ti-S) are required for use with this cable.
Cables can be ordered in lengths from 1 meter to 400 meters for deployment in a wide range of applications. The 1-, 2-, 5-, 10-, 15-, 30-, and 60-meter cable lengths are standard and typically in stock. Custom cable lengths require a lead time of one to two weeks.
