FieldScout SC 900 Soil Compaction Meter

Improve your yield potential by locating and monitoring soil compaction

The SC 900 meter now includes the brand new 3/4" cone tip, as well as improved handling of insertion errors. The 3/4" tip is appropriate for coarse soils. These new features took effect with units shipped after January 1, 2012. Meters acquired prior to 2012 can be upgraded by purchasing the SC900 Upgrade Package (Item #6110FSUP, see purchase table above). The upgrade includes a microcontroller chip with updated firmware, a 3/4" cone tip, new depth target, and updated User's Manual.
  • Includes 1/2 in and 3/4 in cone tip
  • Takes compaction readings to a depth of 18 in (45 cm)
  • Exclusive ultrasonic depth sensor captures readings in 1 in (2.5 cm) increments
  • Penetration resistance measured by the internal load cell
  • Compaction data is displayed in PSI or kPa (1 psi = 6.9 kPa)
  • Connects to any GPS receiver with serial output option*
  • Equipped with internal data logger and RS-232 port
  • Records 772 measurements (579 with added GPS/DGPS option)
  • Configure and download meter with FieldScout® software and USB-to-3.5mm-Stereo-Plug Adapter (Item 3661U.(included)**
  • Compatible with SpecConnect - view contour maps of compaction at each depth, or an "ocean floor" map showing the depth of the compaction layer.
  • Includes carrying case and depth target
