More info

The GreenIQ soil moisture sensor probes allow precise, low cost monitoring of soil water content.

Because this probe measure water content of the soil using transmission line techniques, it is insensitive to water salinity, and will not corrode over time, as do conductivity based probe. This probe is water proof, small, rugged, low power, and can be burried at any depth.

Compared to other low cost sensor such as gypsum block sensors, this probe offer a rapid response time. It can be inserted and take an accurate reading in under a second.

FEATURES :

  • Soil moisture sensor
  • Not conductivity based
  • Insensitive to salinity
  • Probe does not corrode over time
  • Rugged design for long term use
  • Rapid response time
  • Small size
  • Consumes less than 13mA for very low power operation
  • Precise measurement
  • Measures volumetric water content (VWC) or gravimetric water content (GWC)
  • Output Voltage is proportional to moisture level
  • Wide supply voltage range
  • Can be buried and is water proof
  • Probe is long and slender for wider use, including smaller potted plants
  • Compatible with GreenIQ Gen2 an Gen3 Smart Hubs
