Dendrometer bands are a long accepted and widely used method of measuring tree circumference and can provide changes in tree diameter at breast height (DBH), basal area, and basal area increment. The DBS60 Band Dendrometer is a high resolution (1μm [0.001mm]), non-invasive sensor capable of measuring a wide range of diameters (50mm>). The stainless-steel band has a very low linear thermal co-efficient. Thermal variations caused by daily or seasonal changes in temperature have no measurable impact on the measurement accuracy. The DBS60 is IP66 rated and is designed to be installed in the harshest field conditions for years at a time.
Ecomatik dendrometers continuously measure growth (e.g. stem, root, fruit, etc.) and water status related diameter variation of plants in response to their growth environment. Recorded with the same high temporal resolutionas e.g. meteorological parameters, dendrometer signals allow the direct attribution of yield changes, biomass allocation or plant water status to the corresponding driving environmental factors(e.g.drought stess). Ecomatik dendrometers are hence widely usedand well proven instruments in different fields of plant physiological and environmental research.
Pivot dendrometers are designed for simple, error free installation, being fastened on the stem by a spring-based lever clamp. Adherence pressure is set as a compromise between the influence on plant tissues and installation stability. The DPS40 Pivot Stem Dendrometer is a high-resolution pivot-based sensor for measurement of small stems, from 5mm to 40mm, the bearing of the position sensor is carefully shaped for minimal effect of temperature and axial forces.
Fruit and Vegetable Dendrometers are used to measure and monitor fruit ripeness to control for better yields.
