soil respiration tester
The EGA60 is a multi-channel soil respiration measuring system. A single EGA60 system is able to measure up to 24 soil samples.
The operator can program the system to measure each channel for a desired period of time before the multiplexer switches to the next sample.
Just before switching, the CO2 concentration is measured by infra red gas analyser, along with the flow rate and the output of any other sensors connected to the 7 analogue inputs.
All of the resulting measurements are stored on the plug-in, SD memory card. When the experiment is concluded the SD card can be removed and plugged in to a card reader or SD card slot on a laptop PC. A high speed USB port is included for data transfer directly from the system.
