HOBOnet Soil Moisture 10HS Sensor - RXW-SMD-868


HOBOnet Soil Moisture 10HS Sensor

Sale priceR 6,130.78

The HOBOnet Wireless Soil Moisture Sensor integrates the field-proven ECH2O™ 10HS Sensor and provides readings directly in volumetric water content. The 10cm probes measure soil moisture over a larger volume of soil, helping to average out any soil variability. The sensor's high-frequency design minimizes sensitivity to salinity and textural effects and gives it a wide measurement range. HOBOnet Wireless Sensors communicate data directly to the RX3000 weather station or pass data through other wireless sensors back to the central station. They are preconfigured and ready to deploy, and data is accessed through HOBOlink, Onset’s innovative cloud-based software platform.
