The pF-meter delivers exact, high-resolution measurements for physically-stable substances (volumetric heat capacity, see Fig. 1).

Due to the latest measurement methods, the pF-Meter is able to record the matrix potential under equilibrium conditions (e.g. in a soil) over a large measurement range from pF 0 to pF 7.0 (see Fig. 2); this is possible with a very high resolution never reached before (see Fig. 3).
