Genesis v1.5 Soil Moisture Sensor PCB
The Soil Moisture Sensor is a simple breakout for measuring the moisture in soil and similar materials. The soil moisture sensor is pretty straightforward to use. The two large exposed pads function as probes for the sensor, together acting as a variable resistor. The more water that is in the soil means the better the conductivity between the pads will be and will result in a lower resistance, and a higher SIG out.
In the future this soil moisture sensor also will have the ability to measure temperature with firmware updates.
Sensor Type: Capacitive
Output Type: Analog
