Scientific equipment for climate research, industrial measurements and air quality analysis

UGT ECOTRONS


Experimental unit to investigate functions in soil-plant-atmosphere system under defined boundary conditions.

UGT has developed ecotrons, in collaboration with scientists and technicians from multiple research institutes, to study complex interaction between pedosphere, flora, fauna and atmosphere. Systems exists of two (soil and atmosphere unit) or three units (includes extra isolating unit) and can be equipped with multiple sensors for monitoring important system parameters & processes. All ecotrons are compatible with UGT lysimeters.

  • systems exist of two (soil and atmosphere unit) or three units (includes extra isolating unit)
  • can be equipped with multiple sensors for monitoring important system parameters & processes
  • equipment and design of the systems are always optimized for the customer-specific research goal


UGT Ecotron


EcoLab500

System consists of two main components that build vertically on one another: atmosphere & soil unit.

  • soil unit with soil sensors (temperature, tension, water content), suction cups or suction plates, soil cooling system and weighing system
  • atmosphere Unit with air sensors (temperature, humidity), fans and irrigation system
  • compact: fits in an area of 1.5 x 1.5 meters
  • applications: agriculture & soil science

EcoUnit

System consists of three units: lower soil unit, mid unit isolating environment above soil from surrounding and upper unit, which contains equipment for irrigation, lighting and ventilation.

  • several soil sensors can be installed in lower unit to collect soil temperature, moisture & tension data
  • upper unit can be equipped with temperature and humidity sensors as well as a gas analyzer
  • up to four lysimeters can be installed in one EcoUnit
  • applications: agriculture & soil science
