Soil Sensor Kit

Soil Moisture Sensor Kit measures soil humidity and temperature. Measured values are transmitted wirelessly to the Radio Dongle (see recommended products) in your computer or Raspberry Pi, where you can save and analyze measured data in dashboards or graphs. Soil Moisture Kit is connected to the Soil Sensor by 1-Wire bus so it is possible to use multiple sensors on a single cable. Humidity is measured using a capacitive method.

Soil Moisture Sensor Kit measures soil humidity and temperature. Measured values are transmitted wirelessly to the Radio Dongle (see recommended products) in your computer or Raspberry Pi, where you can save and analyze measured data in dashboards or graphs.

Soil Moisture Kit is connected to the Soil Sensor by 1-Wire bus so it is possible to use multiple sensors on a single cable. Humidity is measured using a capacitive method. Measuring is done by two copper strips inside the inner layers of the PCB. This way the contacts are not exposed to direct humidity and do not oxidize. The temperature sensor is located in the top part above the soil. The electronics is completely potted in a sealing compound to withstand all kind of weather.
