Sensors are connected by standard computer cables (1m up to 25m). Cables/Sensors can be exchanged and extended individually. Connection to PC & Windows via cable (serial RS232 or USB) or Bluetooth.
Sensors self calibrate. Placement is based on the geometry of the tree. One tap per second, and easy to use software allows for immediate check of data quality.
Species-specific algorithms, and optional color schemes allow for detailed analysis of decay data.
Several configurations available to suit your budget and needs. Capabilities can be extended by adding the Mechical Module for strength loss analysis, the Statistics Module for data evaluation and the Arboradix root sensor module.
Easy to use sensor cables makes handling and storage simple. Cable length between sensors can be from 1 metre to 25 cm. Typical distances between sensors range from 25 cm (10″) to 1 metre (40″).
The Arbotom software allows for immediate review of the results, checking of data quality, and analysis of decay patterns.
Technical service is usually not required. Cables and sensors can be easily exchanged if necessary.

ARBOSTAPP™ provides arborists and experts with a tool allowing the determination of strength loss due to structural defects in the cross sections of stems and branches and anchorage plate losses in relation to canopy size and expected wind-loads. In addition, the application enables evaluation of load reduction by crown reduction pruning to further achieve higher safety in damaged trees. The inputs are based on the users visual observations rather than diagnostic instruments but enable accurate (if not as precise) estimations of safety which are sufficient for many tree assessment purposes. However, the precision of the evaluation can be increased by putting in results from proper sonic tomography or resistance drilling with density-calibrated devices.
ARBOSTAPP™ is available in 3 versions:
