soil moisture & temperature

Soil Moisture and TemperatureThe single point sensor is 10.5cm in size and can measure soil moisture + temperature or soil moisture + temperature + salinity. The sensor can be completely buried in the soil.

Unlike other single point sensors, the sensor measures volumetric water content for the length of the sensor.

Two cabling options are available, one where the cable exits from the side of the unit, and the other where the cable exits out the top of the unit.

Currently available with the SDI-12 protocol, with applications including (but not limited to) scientific research, hydrology, turf, nursery, greenhouse, planted rooftops and green roofs, mushroom production, satellite cross-calibration and leachate monitoring.
