Der 10824 ist ein Kiefernstab, der mit dem CS505 Brennstofffeuchtesensor (nicht mehr im Programm) verwendet wird, um die Feuchte eines ähnlichen Zweiges am Waldboden zu bestimmen. Er wird aus USFS-Standard Gelbkiefernholz geschnitten.Lesen Sie mehr
The 10824 10-hour Fuel Moisture Stick is used with the CS505 Fuel Moisture Sensor. The 10824 is constructed from the same carefully selected USFS-standard ponderosa dowel as the traditional weighing fuel-moisture rack. No artificial materials (e.g., epoxy sealant) are added to the dowel that would adversely influence the natural behavior characteristics of it.
To optimize probe-to-probe repeatability and to allow probe interchangeability without individual calibration, two additional sorts are performed on the dowels before they are selected to be used as a sensor. First, the dowels are sorted dry by density to improve accuracy in the dry range of 0 to 15%. Second, the dowels are sorted after a 50-minute soak by weight to reduce probe-to-probe time response variation and minimize variability in the wet range of 20 to 50%.
You can easily replace the 10824 in the field by using a Phillips screwdriver and an adjustable wrench. Typical replacement schedule is every spring, but the 10824 should be replaced more frequently in areas with a large number of wet/dry cycles.
