The CPEC200 monitors atmosphere-biosphere exchanges of carbon dioxide, momentum, water vapor, and heat.
The system includes Campbell Scientific's EC155 closed-path gas analyzer, CSAT3A sonic anemometer, CR3000 datalogger, pump module, valves, tubing and other hardware and software needed for a turn-key eddy-covariance setup.
Serial output: SDM, RS-485, USB. Includes CO2 mixing ratio, H2O mixing ratio, fast response cell temperature, cell pressure, differential pressure. When used with the CSAT3A head, also outputs Ux, Uy, Uz, sonic temperature. A range of sensor diagnostics are also output
