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 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.
This locking well cap provides a convenient way to suspend HOBO MicroRX Water Level sensor cables in a well, and provides strain relief (especially important for long cables).
Hydrophobic Vent Tube Caps attach to the opening of the Stevens SDX Pressure Sensor vent tube. The caps have a hydrophobic membrane that allows barometric pressure compensation without allowing water ingress, while also not requiring replacement. Unlike desiccant cartridges, this cap does not “pull" moisture out of the tube. If there is moisture in the tube already, it will remain there with the use of this cap. It is recommended that each SDX vent tube is protected from water ingress with either this cap or a desiccant cartridge (T-SDX-93030-010).
The Maintenance Kit includes the Calibration Kit (MX2500-CAL-KIT) and the Electrode Storage Solution (MX2500-STORE-SOLN).
