This model is optimized for for tree diameters of more than 5 cm. Automatic adjustment of the tension, sensitive measurements even with very large trees, pressure of the wire cable to the tree independent of tree size.

Typical Applications

  • Monitoring of the growth processes of plants
  • Monitoring the water status of plants
  • Examination of the influence of environmental factors on plant growth
  • Precise dating of the beginning and end of growing season
  • Precise determination of the point of frost events
  • Estimation of the water content in plants (in combination with sap flow measurement the transpiration can be calculated continuously)
  • Irrigation control
