Product information "Soil temperature and volumetric water content sensor probe"
The Soil temperature and volumetric water content sensor probe sensor can measure volumetric water content and temperature of soil. The sensor uses an oscillator running at 70 MHz to measure the dielectric permittivity of soil to determine the water content (VWC). A thermistor in thermal contact with the sensor prongs provides the soil temperature.
