Cone Penetrometers | CP100 | CP200 | CP300 | CP40II
The CP300 Cone Penetrometer is a mid level instrument capable of accurate and easy collection of cone-index data, making it an essential tool for more intensive soil studies involving compaction, trafficability and moisture distribution.
An accurate, electronic logging Cone Penetrometer that can collect enough data to allow spacial distribution studies. It is priced to meet the requirements of agronomists, consulting soil scientists and farmers who need a serious analytical tool.
The RIMIK CP300 incorporates many of the features of its big brother, the CP40II, but has a smaller, non-graphical display, smaller memory, and does not have GPS capability.
What it DOES offer is Ultra Sonic Depth sensing, NiMh rechargeable batteries, internal logging, and USB connectivity, all in a small and light enclosure with stainless steel shaft and cone. The shaft is the same two-piece unit as used on all models, making it easy to carry in a fitted case.
This breed of Cone Penetrometer is used to measure soil density and hardness where a research level study of the data is required. It has been designed for use by those who require data to conduct transverse analysis and low level spatial variation of known locations. It measures and records cone index values of the load required to insert the cone through the soil and returns figures of the hardness of the soil. These results can be viewed on the LCD screen or downloaded to a computer via the serial port and with the use of the Rimik Penetrometer Reader software. Up to 500 insertions may be recorded with depths of up to 750mm and cone index values of up to 9800kPa (with a 100mm² cone).
This instrument can be user configured to operate in metric or imperial mode. The menu structure also allows the user to preselect any of four (4) depth intervals and to preselect any of 6 cone sizes. Data can also be “Grouped” by nominating a Group size (up to 500) prior to taking any set of insertions.
The instrument can be purchased with either or both the ASAE or EURO cone kit.
Full profile data is output following each insertion via the USB port. With a wired connection to a device (e.g. laptop) with a Windows 7 or above operating system, the user can observe each insertion immediately in graphical format via a “Listen” function within the Rimik Penetrometer Reader software. This is useful for significant studies which might require the manual input of GPS data while in the field. The data set is amended to both the instrument and attached windows device file following each insertion.
