AquaSense 2280D

The North American manufactured moisture sensor with the 10 year guarantee

Accurate,hard wearing, easy to install and calibrate. AquaSense measures the moisture content of sand and fine aggregates using microwave technology which eliminates the errors associated with resistance and capacitance methods, guaranteeing an accurate reading every time.

Product features
  • Easy one-hole mounting in the wall of any bin or hopper.  This allows the moisture sensor to be inserted into the flow region above the gate. 

  • You can install the AquaSense 2280D probe in sand without emptying the bin.  Just dig a hole and slide it in.

  • The angle of the sensing head packs the flowing material precisely.  This is important to achieve the best accuracy.

  • Internal software averages the moisture values during the flow period.  It also holds this reading between batches.

  • One-step digital calibration using PC, laptop or batching system, makes setup simple.

  • You can calibrate it to read either surface moisture or total moisture.  Total moisture includes the water inside the granules of material.

  • You can store up to 10 material calibration sets in the sensor, for use with multiple ingredients.

  • Consistently more accurate than oven dry tests.

  • AquaSense 2280D on-line moisture sensor is manufactured in North America.  Consequently, this guarantees you fast service, repairs and parts.

  • Accessories include mounting flanges, junction boxes, cables etc.

  • Empty bin detection holds the reading when material falls below the sensor, to avoid spoiled batches.

  • Bin Empty plus two programmable digital alarm outputs give warning of moisture outside limits.

  • Stainless steel body and thick ceramic faceplate give long, wear free life.

  • Easy to mount; no need for accurate positioning.  Mounting accessories included in kit.

  • Internal software with Dynamic Calibration allows you to use older readings or discard them, giving better accuracy.

  • Sensor stores all calibration results internally.  In consequence, it makes each sensor independent of external software.

  • Windows Graphic User Interface makes setup and calibration fast and easy.

  • Industry standard digital interface is compatible with all control systems.
