Since the introduction of Water/Moisture Sensor in early 2013, our customers have loved its simplicity and low cost compared with other soil moisture sensing products.
A repeated request we received was to be able to measure soil moisture at a deeper region of the ground, where it matters for most plants. Also because the original version did not have a scratch resistant coating, outdoor use caused the water proof coating and solder-mask on board to eventually wear away by weather elements.
To satisfy needs for outdoor use, we have developed the 2.0 which is available today for shipment.
With deeper sensing arm, you will be able to sense soil moisture level at deeper region, or alternatively, leave the electronics/antenna higher above ground for better signal strength/longer range.
The entire board is coated with HumiSeal UV40, a material with high hardness for scratch resistance that is also highly resistant to chemicals; in addition to being water proof. This will allow the sensor to be used for outdoor agriculture exposed to weather elements.
The sensor also comes with the latest firmware that incorporates all the bug fixes that are already in other types of Wireless Tags.
