Soil Moisture & Temperature Sensor

The 5TM delivers temperature, measured by an onboard thermistor, along with accurate volumetric water content. The 5TM determines volumetric water content (VWC) by measuring the dielectric constant of the soil (or other media) using capacitance/frequency domain technology. Signal filtering minimises salinity and textural effects, making the 5TM accurate in most soils and soilless media. Factory calibrations are included for mineral soils, potting soils, rockwool, and perlite. The 5TM Soil Moisture Sensor Features Easy Installation, it's small size makes it easy to install – perfect for in field installations. This robust probe can be pushed directly into undisturbed soil to ensure good accuracy. Its compact design makes it useful not only in the field, but also in labs or greenhouses.
