How to Change Metadata in EddyPro Software

How to Change Metadata in EddyPro Software

Mistakes happen. During the busy hustle of an eddy covariance installation, you might accidentally enter some metadata values incorrectly in the LI-7500RS/LI-7500DS/LI-7200RS Windows Interface Software. For example, you could set the canopy height to 2.6m instead of 6.2m, or you could incorrectly hear the sensor separation numbers as they’re being shouted down from the tower. You might not notice the discrepancy for a while, either. Fortunately EddyPro® Software makes it easy to edit the metadata file and reprocess all of…

Connecting a Soil Moisture Probe to the LI-6400XT

Connecting a Soil Moisture Probe to the LI-6400XT

The LI-6400XT Portable Photosynthesis System can record data from auxiliary sensors, such as soil moisture probes, through its 37-pin connector. Any soil moisture probe can be connected, as long as it provides analog voltage outputs. Frequency, SDI-12, or RS-485 sensors will not work with the LI-6400XT. In this example we will connect a Decagon EC-5 soil moisture sensor.

Hardware Configuration

Connect the soil moisture probe to the 37-pin connector kit (part number 9964-035). This may require soldering. The connector kit…
