The d1Plucker and d4Plucker are small, low cost unit that instantly convert vibrating wire (VW) transducers such as load cells, stressmeters and piezometers, into d-Tech compatible instruments.

These VW sensors then become compatible with YieldPoint’s data loggers and radios.

1 channel and 4 channel versions are available. d-Plucker enables YieldPoint’s low cost digital peripheral devices to read (d-Reader), store (d-Logger) or transmit (d-Mesh) data from VW sensors.
