PC application makes setup and moisture calibration easy

AquaSense 2280D uses a Windows Graphic User Interface (GUI) for setup and moisture calibration.  Here’s how it works:

Serial connection setup

Single AquaSense 2280D moisture sensors can use either RS232 or RS485.  For multiple sensor systems, you can connect sensors in daisy-chain or bus fashion . . . Read more
USB/RS485 adaptor plugs into computer.  The RS485 protocol is Modbus compatible, allowing you to use the sensors in SCADA systems. Load the software onto a laptop or PC from CD or internet and run through the guided setup of your serial port. Same software is used for both AquaSense aggregate moisture sensors and AquaMix mixer moisture sensors.  You can even connect them on the same RS485 line if the batching controller can handle it.

Discover sensors

Click the Discover Sensors button and the software automatically makes the connection, runs through all sensors on the line and reports back as seen at left . . . Read more
It identifies each sensor, showing you which ones are on-line, together with the current moisture readings in filtered and raw states and the temperature at the sensor faceplate.

Configuration screen allows you to enter setup parameters with easily understood titles.  For more complex parameters, a complete manual is available at the click of a button, embedded within the software. Multiple languages are available directly on the menu – contact us for availability of your choice.

Calibrate your sensor

Moisture calibration screen displays current moisture value and raw value, plus temperature reading.  Table allows you to enter oven-dry test results, along with corresponding sensor readings . . . Read more
You can select or disable each set of readings according to the graph at right or a “consistency” value that shows the best fit of your readings,.  Consequently you will obtain the best moisture calibration curve. You can enter up to 10 such tables for different materials such as sand and different sizes of aggregates, allowing you to use the same bin and sensor for these different materials with full accuracy. Included in the moisture probe calibration software is a full instruction manual and a guide on doing oven-dry moisture tests.
