Warden online TDR Soil Moisture System
Share This Page :

Warden is an online TDR (Time Domain Reflectometry) soil moisture meter of moisture, temperature and electrical conductivity. Minimal footprint meter equipped with an internal data recorder and eight channels, which can be used in both the lab and the field. Tiny sensors follow true TDR principle, the upper frequency of the analyzing needle pulse is about 1.5 GHz.  Special designed sensor body with ultimate low heat conductivity, avoid the parasite "thermal bridge" effects on distribution of soil moisture in the probe’s sensor vicinity. Warden is easy to connect with internet for cloud data storage, remote data access, configuration and synchronization of internal clock.


TDR(Time Domain Reflectometry)


  • Minimal footprint datalogger with up to 16 connection ability
  • True TDR principle with 1.5GHz upper frequency
  • Measurement of soil moisture, temperature and salinity
  • No special maintenance means are required
  • Ultra-low power consumption for both work mode sleep mode
