ecoTech Umwelt-Meßsysteme was founded 1984 in Bonn; the company’s legal status was changed into ecoTech Umwelt-Meßsysteme GmbH in 1991.
Our staff includes scientists, engineers, and technicians.
ecoTech develops and brings to the market measurement-systems and measurement devices for hydrology, soil science, ecology and meteorology.
We see ourselves as our customers’ scientific and technical partners and emphasize a highly qualified consultation regarding the project
and the recommended products. Our strength is to have close cooperation with research facilities, environmental agencies and engineering offices
and a profound knowledge of current problems in the field of environmental monitoring.
Our technical solutions and developments are continuously aligned by experts to current future demands.
Attention in the area of soil science is focused on the soil water and the linked solute transport.
In many cases, tried and tested results of our research and development activities are suction cups
and suction plates, optimized for getting soil water samples with low loss and representative for the area.
To record one main driver for the solute availability, we have developed a new Redox-electrode for continuous installation in the field.
Since 2007, we have also focused on the patented pF-meter, which measures water tension in the range of pF 0 to pF 7 maintenance-free, and frost-resistant.
This device is used more often in reference projects rather than tensiometers.
To create pF curves of soil samples in the laboratory, we have implemented the groundbreaking suction plate-technique in our pF-laboratory-station.
This has been extended by several modules from 2005.
