  • Phidgets Soil Moisture Sensor
  • Engineered to accurately gauge soil moisture levels
  • Generates values from 0 to 1 indicating moisture content
  • Ideal for automated gardening projects and environmental research
  • Interfaces with a computer via a VINT Hub
  • Requires calibration based on specific soil conditions

The Phidgets Soil Moisture Sensor is engineered to gauge the moisture levels in the soil by observing the capacitance between its prongs when inserted into the soil. The sensor generates a value ranging from 0 to 1, which signifies the moisture content of the soil. This device proves to be extremely beneficial for automated gardening projects and environmental research. The HUM1100 model interfaces with a computer via a VINT Hub. It should be noted that the moisture values produced by the sensor can fluctuate based on the type of soil being examined. Therefore, it is advisable to conduct tests and calibrate the sensor according to the specific soil conditions.

Note: The moisture values generated by the sensor may vary depending on the type of soil being monitored. It is highly recommended to test and calibrate the sensor for the desired soil conditions.
