What We Do

Campbell Scientific systems are used in the oil and gas industry to monitor and control pumping facilities, and monitor slope stability, water resources, weather, air quality, and equipment performance. Our rugged, low-power instruments are used worldwide, even in harsh, remote locations. Campbell dataloggers can use various types of input, and can output data and alarms via most communication methods. CS also provides surface electronics for observation wells. Our systems can measure thermocouples, piezometers and other sensor types. Visit our Steam Assisted Gravity Drainage (SAGD) page for more information.

Systems

Sensors Measurements Made Water Content Accuracy Required Equipment Soil Suitability Rods

CS650

Not interchangeable Soil electrical conductivity (EC), relative dielectric permittivity, volumetric water content, soil temperature
  • Volumetric Water Content: ±1% (with soil-specific calibration)
  • Volumetric Water Content: ±3% (typical with factory VWC model) where solution EC < 3 dS/m
Measurement system Long rods with large sensing volume (> 6 L) are suitable for soils with low to moderate electrical conductivity. Not replaceable

CS655

Not interchangeable Soil electrical conductivity (EC), relative dielectric permittivity, volumetric water content, soil temperature
  • Volumetric Water Content: ±1% (with soil-specific calibration) where solution EC < 3 dS/m
  • Volumetric Water Content: ±3% (typical with factory VWC model) where solution EC < 10 dS/m
Measurement system Short rods are easy to install in hard soil. Suitable for soils with higher electrical conductivity. Not replaceable

CS616

Not interchangeable Volumetric water content of porous media (such as soil) ±2.5% VWC (using standard calibration with bulk EC of ≤ 0.5 dS m-1, bulk density of ≤ 1.55 g cm-3, and measurement range of 0% to 50% VWC) Measurement system Long rods and lower frequency are well-suited for soft soil with low electrical conductivity (< 2 dS/m). Not replaceable

HS2

Interchangeable sensors; can swap the 12 cm and 20 cm sensors with the reader. Volumetric water content of porous media (such as soil)
  • 3% typical (Accuracy assumes solution EC of < 4 dS/m when using the CS658 20-cm probe.)
  • 3% typical (Accuracy assumes solution EC of < 6.5 dS/m when using the CS659 12-cm probe.)
HS2 is a complete system. Short rods are easy to install in hard soil. Suitable for soils with higher electrical conductivity. Replaceable

CS658

Not interchangeable Volumetric water content of porous media (such as soil) HS2 Suitable for hard soils. Replaceable

CS659

Not interchangeable Volumetric water content of porous media (such as soil) HS2 Suitable for hard soils. Replaceable
