Nowadays, the climate issues are one of the most important and specialized science fields. The analysing methods on lack of water impacts are constantly changing. In order to help the agronomy world to understand the irrigation processes and their influence. Displacements sensors will be used to watch the growth’s process and link it with the standard stimulus, water, sun exposure, pollution toxins, earth quality, chemicals etc.
The system must be compact and not interfere with the trees or fruits developments. Each specie has it’s own behaviour and the scientist in charge of the analysis would be able to classify each type of plants for each type of lands.
Our OEM makes an adapted fixture to fix the LVDT directly on the samples. The tests could be also engaged directly on the field, everywhere on the globe. The communication will be handled by a low power consumption electronics, including a GPRS transfer mode.  The Index of protection must be as high as possible IP67.

The LDVT technology is perfectly adapted for the harshest environment. The capability of the LVDT to detect the smallest possible movement is a key for very small displacement.This application generally claims dedicated products to match with delicate surface like trees or fruits. The large range of sensors both ‘off the shelf’ and ‘customer specials’ that are better able to satisfy today’s demanding on such research applications.

The Solartron Orbit® 3 Digital Measurement System, in conjunction with Solartron’s wide range of transducers, including both contact and non-contact linear measuring transducers (gauging probes), specialist transducers and third party transducer interfaces, provides a limitless set of measuring system solutions, with numerous different interfaces to computers and PLC’s, making Orbit® 3 completely flexible.

Combining multiple sensors using the Orbit Digital Measurement network is easy and data can be read using a Solartron readout or the Gauge Computer Software making system integration simple.
