General Questions

The kit includes a Novus FieldLogger 512K data logger.

The internal 2MB of memory allows for continuous logging over 6 months with a 5-minute logging interval. Alternatively, an external SD card can be used for longer logging.

The FieldLogger can be communicated with via USB (mini) or TCP/IP using the Windows-based FieldLogger Configurator software.

The kit includes 2 x Hukseflux HFP01 heat flux plates.

HFP01 is the world’s most popular sensor for heat flux measurement in the soil as well as through walls and building envelopes. The total thermal resistance is kept small by using a ceramics-plastic composite body. The sensor is very robust and stable. It is suitable for long-term use in one location as well as repeated installation when a measuring system is used at multiple locations.

The kit includes multiple PT100 RTD high-accuracy temperature sensors.

The air temperature sensors included are Class AA (1/3 DIN) manufactured to ±0.1°C accuracy as required by the ISO 9869 Standard.
