RK520-01 Soil Moisture & Temperature Sensor to integrate the moisture and temperature measurement.The stainless steel probe is inserted into soil surface or soil profile to test soil moisture and temperature quickly. Moisture measurement part is designed on the basis of the principle of FDR, by measuring the dielectric constant of the soil in order to measure the volume of the soil moisture content, temperature part adopts precision platinum resistance element, the product built-in drift calibration and temperature compensation circuit, can adapt to most applications.The probe can be permanently embedded underground and be connected to a data logger for unlimited testing.
4-20mA ,0-5V,0-2V,RS485 optional
Effective measurement area
With the center of the probe diameter is 70mm, high 70mm cylinder
71*45*16mm( probe:2* Ø3*55mm,1*Ø4*55mm)
316L stainless steel
1.Testing medium should be with uniform intensity.
2. If surface soil water content measurement, the sensor should be insert into soil vertically. Do not shake the sensor when inserted, otherwise the probe will be blended;
3. If multi-layer soil water content measurement, the sensor should be buried in the soil and parallel to the ground. Make sure the probe not be blended;
4. When removing sensors from the soil, please hold the sensor housing shell and do not forcibly pull on the cable. Soil on probes should be brushed tightly.
5. Please keep the sensor in dry & clean conditions.
