My main expertise is in water movement and wastewater treatment in the field; I especially love applied science that works for the professional in the field. I invented the Aardvark Borehole Permeameter and Soilmoisture heard about my invention and contacted me. I was truly impressed with their flexible technical staff who, after much work on their part, turned my design into the world's only automated Borehole Permeameter: tough, portable, reliable, highly accurate, and complete with software. Still known as the Aardvark, it is now sold worldwide through their extensive global network. I am proud to have my name and invention associated with Soilmoisture Equipment!

Designing for Results, Collaboration

Designing for Results, Collaboration

Too often today companies only give you their pat solution, a take it or “go away – your bothering us” answer if their home...often there’s no one available to answer or address your special needs. Soilmoisture has always provided exceptional attention to our customer’s needs and requirements no matter how trivial they may seem to others. We believe that you may have unusual specifics that we can and will make every effort to fulfill. Give us a chance to lend a hand, to collaborate and find a solution that is both highly functional, cost effective and easily maintained. We’re highly savvy and with years of experience applying science to instrumentation and most likely can find you the exact solution your hunting for. We can even OEM your completed project under your company or institute’s name.

Mechanical, Electrical, Firmware & Software Adaptations

Mechanical, Electrical, Firmware & Software Adaptations

Today it seems each company is highly specialized and to get a functioning system takes numerous parties to come to a common understanding before work can start and everyone is on the same page. With years of practical mechanical, electrical and electronic fabrication, molding, ceramics, and pick and place capabilities, 3D printing, STL fabrication and much more our in-house team approach knows how to “geter done”. With our abilities to optimize microprocessors through firmware, and create easily understandable software interfaces, data delivery and graphical representations we can complete a special or custom system need in record time and at modest costs.

Real Time Data and Graphical Solutions & Representations

Real Time Data and Graphical Solutions & Representations

With our understanding of wireless technologies let us get your information to home base for further analysis. Whether you want it delivered to the “cloud”, Ethernet, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi we most likely have already done it. If there’s a solution in need of real time data for plant, soil or the earth-sciences I’m sure we can make, find or develop the system components that will deliver the information you need on a real time or near real time basis.

The Right Fit to Suit your needs

The Right Fit to Suit your needs

It’s important that any solution fit the customers need in a suitable manner. We try from the very start to find out the extent and scope of your needs so that the completed system, instrument, or sensor will be a good fit those needs. All too often the solutions provided result in “overkill” with too much complexity, un-needed feature sets and lack of logical cohesive process steps. On the other hand it may not function as expected, lack good data or an understandable interface. We’ll tailor the solution to exactly meet your requirement in a collaborative documented format.

A Worldwide Viewpoint

A Worldwide Viewpoint

We have been serving the world for over 60 years and know that an appropriate economic solution for one area of the world does not necessarily hold for other areas of the planet. We can bring that expertise to the table in assuring that your solution, system or sensor has viability in differing regions of the world other than your home country. Since we export and import we can find and develop paths for future sales of your device, system or software solution. Let us help you get a start on your next global product, system or device.
