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.
- 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|
|Number of data channels:||1|
|Measurement averaging option:||No|
