ICT International Band Dendrometer Station (SNiP-DBS6-SL)

POA - Price on Application

Description

Stem diameter is one of the most commonly measured physical attributes of trees. Dendrometer bands are a long-accepted and widely used method of measuring tree circumference and can provide information on temporal changes in tree diameter at breast height (DBH), basal area, and basal area increment.

  • The DBS60 Band Dendrometer used in the SNiP-DBS6-SL package is a high resolution (1μm [0.001mm]), non-invasive sensor capable of measuring a wide range of circumferences (stem diameters of >50mm).
  • The stainless-steel band has a very low linear thermal co-efficient; variations caused by daily or seasonal changes in temperature have no measurable impact on the measurement accuracy.
  • The DBS60 is IP66 rated and is designed to be installed in the harshest field conditions.
  • The SNiP-DBS6-SL packages can be expanded to support up to 4 x DBS60 band dendrometers.
Forestry

In forestry dendrometers are used for long term data collection in the study of growth dynamics, biomass allocation and rates of carbon sequestration.

Horticulture

Dendrometers are used to measure the diameter of fruits, plants and trees. High resolution dendrometers, such as the DBS60, are used to monitor the diurnal swelling and shrinkage of stems, the calculated difference is a commonly used parameter in irrigation scheduling.

Research

The DBL60 is the scientific standard for band dendrometer measurements. Highly accurate, with a measurement resolution of 1µm (0.001 mm) and linear thermal co-efficient of 17.3 x 10-6 per °C.
