The Eijkelkamp Penetrologger is an easy to use, lightweight electronic penetrometer. The instrument stores and processes resistance to penetration measurements and the compaction of a soil. While your data is presented graphically or numerically for accurate processing.Contact Van Walt
Using various cones connected to probing rods, the cone is pushed slowly and regularly into the soil. The depth reference plate, which is on the soil surface, reflects the signals of the ultrasonic sensor, which results in a very accurate depth measurement. The depth reference plate is also used to reflect the signals which are used to control the penetration speed. The measured resistance to penetration and the GPS coordinates are stored in the internal logger of the pentrologger.
