Automated soil respiration system

Manufacturer: LI-COR BIOSCIENCES UK LTD
Model: Li-8150-8 Multiplexer

The LI-8150 Multiplexer gives the user the flexibility to operate as many as 16 chambers, in any combination of opaque (8100-104) or clear (8100-104C) chambers. The LI-8150 Multiplexer houses a large pump, filters and solenoids to switch between chambers and transfer air from the chambers to the LI-8100A Analyzer Control Unit.

The LI-8150 Multiplexer greatly expands the capability of the LI-8100A and provides a simple solution that satisfies both temporal and spatial resolution requirements for monitoring CO2 flux. Designed exclusively for use with the LI-8100A, the LI-8150 allows up to 16 chambers to be connected to provide adequate spatial coverage. The system's automation enables long-term, unattended measurement of diel and seasonal flux patterns.
