Take your gardening project to the next level with an SHT-10 based Soil Moisture & Temperature sensor. The sensor includes a temperature/humidity sensor module from Sensiron in a sinter metal mesh encasing. The casing is weatherproof and will keep water from seeping into the body of the sensor and damaging it, but allows air to pass through so that it can measure the humidity (moisture) of the soil. It is designed to be submersible in water, but it’s always best to avoid long-term (over 1 hour at a time) submersion, if you need something that can be submerged for over an hour you may want to find a different sensor. It can also be simply placed outside for exterior weather sensing. For Arduino, there’s a handy Sensiron library with an example.
- Red = VCC (3-5VDC)
- Black or Green = Ground
- Yellow = Data
- Blue = Clock.
- Relative Humidity and Temperature Measurement
- Excellent Long Term Stability
- Waterproof Package, and Can be Used for Measurement of Soil
- Low Energy Consumption
