Grove - Capacitive Soil Moisture Sensor (Corrosion Resistant)

SKU
101020614

The Grove - 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.

PRODUCT DETAILS

A soil moisture sensor is one that detects the volumetric water content of the soil. The Grove - 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. Hence, we call it Corrosion Resistant.

It is important to note that this sensor can only qualitatively test the humidity of the soil and cannot measure quantitatively. When the humidity of the soil rises, the value of the output decreases; conversely, when the humidity decreases, the output value becomes higher.

Note

What is Grove?

Grove makes it easier to connect, experiment, and simplify the prototyping process. No jumpers or soldering required. We have developed more than 300 Grove modules, covering a wide range of applications that can fulfill a variety of needs. Not only are these open hardware, but we also have open-source software.
