Redox probe: Measures the redox potential (EH, ORP) in soils, permanent application in field or laboratory, even under water-saturated conditions

  • Special design for permanent application in soils
  • Small dimensions
  • Application in field and laboratory
  • Normalized platinum surface for improved reproducibility
  • Mobile readout or stationary using the connection module for enviLog
  • Designed by Prof. Dr. Mansfeldt, University of Cologne
  • 25 Years of experience in soil science within laboratories and in the field
  • Original idea of Prof. Mansfeldt (Professor of Soil Geography / Soil science, University of Cologne). The joint development of the probe design, in partnership with Prof. Mansfeldt, began in 2004.
  • Extremely durable technology. The oldest measuring system has been in continuous operation with ecoTech electrodes since 2010. Some sensors have been submerged in groundwater, up to 150 cm depth, for 95 % of their operational time.
  • More than 1300 electrodes worldwide in operation
  • The measuring system consists of measuring and reference electrodes
  • Measuring electrodes are maintenance free
  • Maintenance of the reference electrode is easy, without the need to dismantle or disrupt the measuring electrodes
  • Central data collection is possible, with the combination of an SDI-unit, long cable runs are possible as well as the use of remote data transmission
  • Can be combined with ecoTech pH-electrodes in the same system
  • Ideal for long-term monitoring
