Instant root zone moisture, conductivity (EC) and temperature measurements with a single click 

  • Measure moisture, conductivity (EC) and temperature directly in the root zone in one click 
  • Connects to the Bluelab Pulse App to view, analyze and store all your measurement data. App available in English, Spanish, Dutch, German and Korean languages 
  • Robust 8”/200 mm long-format stainless steel probes provide deeper insight 
  • Use the built-in depth gauge to get consistent measurements with every reading (the Bluelab Pulse Meter Depth Gauge and Probe Tip Cover is available as a spare part) 
  • Works in soil, coco-coir, nutrient solution and other media*. 

*Does not work in media with large voids (Perlite), or media which can be permanently distorted (Rockwool). 

Grow your best plants by understanding root zone moisture, conductivity (EC) and temperature

With the Bluelab Pulse Meter, growers can make better decisions based on data collected from the root zone.  

Moisture: Measure moisture to control your irrigation cycles and water consumption while minimizing the risk of root infections. 

Conductivity (EC): All plants need the right amount of food (nutrients) to thrive. Measure conductivity (EC) so your plants have access to the right amount of nutrients at every growth stage. 

Temperature: The temperature of your root zone changes during the growing season, influencing conductivity (EC) measurements. Spot temperature fluctuations and improve root function.
