Hand-Held Meter MST 3000+

Hand-held meter MST 3000+ is suited for quick and accurate reading out of measurement data from the humidity and temperature sensor SMT 100. Its handling is very simple: by pressing a button,the values appear immediately on the LCD display. The automatic switch-off prevents unintentional battery drain. The hand-held meter MST 3000+ can be used for direct, individual measurements in all soils and substrates.

While using this measurement method it is essential to consider that equal measurement values can only be achieved at equal ambient conditions (soil density, Penetration depth) of the sensor. It is therefore highly recommended to perform several measurements and to calculate an average value. The MST 3000 + can also be used merely as a display device for permanently installed sensors, that do not require frequent reading and documentation (in preliminary tests for irrigation control, for example).

Technical data:
