Soil Moisture Sensor, Accurately detects amount of moisture content in soil and outputs serial data at 9600 bps. Also outputs Analog voltage as per level of moisture in soil.
The sensor has a low power requirement and very high resolution. This gives the ability to make many measurements (i.e. hourly) over a long period of time with minimal battery usage. In addition, the sensors incorporate a high frequency oscillation, which allows the sensor to accurately measure soil moisture in any soil with minimal salinity and textural effects.
