Looking for a simplistic soil moisture sensor? Search no more, the EC-5 is a sensor that precisely measures water content in any soil or soil-less media with minimal salinity and textural effects.
The EC-5 delivers research-grade quality at a price that makes large networks economically viable. You can easily characterize your site with sensors at varying depths and locations, even if you’re on a restricting budget.
The EC-5 calculates volumetric water content (VWC) by analysing the dielectric constant of the media using capacitance/frequency domain technology. Its 70 MHz frequency minimizes salinity and textural influences, making this sensor accurate in most any soil type or soilless media. Factory calibrations are available for mineral soils, potting soils, rockwool, and perlite.
Just 5 cm long with a 0.3 L measurement volume, this useful compact sensor is simple to install in the field and may be used in nursery pots. The EC-5’s durable design makes it easy to push directly into undisturbed soil to ensure premium accuracy.
The EC-5’s analog signal means easy integration with other companies’ systems, such as Campbell Scientific.
Range: calibration dependant; up to 0-100% VWC with polynomial equation
