Soil Moisture Sensor

This Soil Moisture Sensor is designed to fulfil the needs of precision irrigation, it is built on capacitive/FDR mechanism and its accuracy is very high.

This Soil Moisture sensor is available in multiple depth options such as 15 cm, 30 cm, 45 cm, 60 cm, 75 cm and 90 cm.

Soil moisture readings can be viewed and analysed using the mobile application and this soil moisture sensor can also be integrated with single plot or multi plot motor controller for precision irrigation scheduling.

Following are some key features of Soil Moisture Sensor Features:

1. Voltage Supply - DC 5- 12 Volt +/- 0.5 Volt

2. It support 4 AA lithium batteries as power backup with Solar Charging on top

3. Current Consumption - max 105mA or minimum

4. Output Signal Voltage Level - 3.3Volt(via USB)

5. Temperature Range - (-40 degree to 85 degree C, Industrial)
