Capacitive Soil Moisture Sensor, Capacitive Sensing

This is a ready-to-use Capacitive Soil moisture sensor, generally used to measure the amount of moisture present in the soil by capacitive sensing. The soil moisture sensor is a small and simple module that can be used with Arduino (or any other microcontroller) with both analog and digital output.

 

Features:

  • Soil Moisture Sensor Based on Soil Capacitive Sensing
  • Made of Corrosion Resistant Material for long-lasting, easy to plug into soil.
  • Operating Voltage: 3.3V to 5.5Vdc
  • Analog Output Signal
  • Easy to use and Cost Effective

 

 

Working of Capacitive Soil Moisture Sensor Module

Capacitive Soil Moisture Sensor (Corrosion Resistant) is a soil moisture sensor based on capacitance changes. Compared with resistive sensors, capacitive sensors do not require direct exposure of the metal electrodes, which can significantly reduce the erosion of the electrodes (corrosion-resistant). The soil is the dielectric medium and its capacitance changes with moisture content. By pairing the sensor with a timer circuit, we obtain an analog voltage that can be read with an Arduino board. This voltage in turn has a direct relationship with the soil moisture content./p>

 

  • This is an analog capacitive moisture sensor, measures soil moisture by capacitive sensing.
  • The capacitance is converted into voltage level with a maximum of 3Vdc.
  • Made of Corrosion-resistant probe.
  • Digital Output can be produced by an additional ADC (Not Included).
