Overview

Measure soil moisture over a large volume of soil with the affordably-priced 10HS Soil Moisture Smart Sensor. This sensor integrates the field-proven 10HS Sensor and a 12-bit A/D, providing ±3% accuracy in most soils conditions, and ±2% accuracy with soil-specific calibration. The 10cm probes measure soil moisture over a larger volume of soil which helps to average out any soil variability. Readings are provided directly in volumetric water content. This sensor's high frequency design gives it a low sensitivity to salinity and textural effects and a wide measurement range.

Highlighted Features

  • Measures a large 1-liter volume of soil, providing a more accurate picture of average soil moisture
  • Provides data directly in volumetric water content
  • Sensor uses a high-frequency (70 MHz) circuit that provides good accuracy even in high-salinity and sandy soils.
  • Compatible with Onset standalone and web-based weather stations

In what environment does this sensor operate?

This sensor operates in an outdoor environment.

What measurements does this sensor support?

The S-SMD-M005 sensor supports the following measurement: Soil Moisture


Measurement range in soil: 0 to 0.570 m³/m³ (volumetric water content)
Accuracy: ±0.033 m³/m³ (±3.3%) typical 0 to +50°C (+32° to +122°F) for mineral soils up to 10 dS/m.
±0.020 m³/m³ (±2%) with soil specific calibration.
Resolution: 0.0008 m³/m³ (0.08%).
Soil probe dimensions: 160 x 32 x 2 mm (6.5 x 1.25 x 0.08 in.).
Weight: 190 grams (6.7 oz)
Decagon probe part no.: 10HS
Sensor operating temperature: 0° to +50°C (+32° to +122°F). Although the sensor probe and cable can safely operate at below-freezing temperatures (to -40°C/F) and the smart sensor
tube (the white portion of the sensor cable that houses the electronics) can be exposed to temperatures up to +70°C (+158°F), the soil moisture data collected
at these extreme temperatures is outside of the sensor's accurate measurement range. Extended temperatures above +50°C (+122°F) will decrease logger
battery life when using for the S-SMD-M005 smart sensor.
Volume of influence: 1 liter (33.8 oz)
Sensor frequency: 70 MHz
Logging Rate: 12
Number of data channels: 1
Measurement averaging option: No
Cable length available: 5 m (16 ft)
Length of Smart Sensor network cable: 0.5 m (1.6 ft)
Battery Life: - The CE Marking identifies this product as complying with all relevant directives in the European Union (EU)
Time Accuracy: ± 1 minute per month at 25°C (77°F)
Full Memory Dowload: Approximately 45 seconds; may take longer the farther the device is from the logger
Wetted Materials: Polypropylene case, EPDM O-ring
Dimensions: 3.35 x 5.64 x 1.6 cm (1.32 x 2.22 x 0.63 inches)
Weight: 12.75 g (.45 oz)
The CE Marking identifies this product as complying with all relevant directives in the European Union (EU).This equipment has been tested and found to comply with the limits for a Class B
digital device, pursuant to Part 15 of the FCC Rules.
