Soil Water Potential Sensor

Soil Water Potential Sensor


This sensor allows the untrained user to assess the water potential of soil.  Water potential provides a measure of the propensity of water to move from one area to another (e.g. through gravity, osmosis etc.).

Soil Water Potential Resolution 0.1 kPa

Soil Water Potential Accuracy ±25% of reading from -10 kPa to -100 kPa

Soil Temperature Range -40 °C to +60 °C

Soil Temperature Resolution 0.1 °C

Soil Temperature Accuracy ±1 °C

Measurement Speed 150 ms

Equilibriation Time 10min to 1hr depending on soil water potential

Output RS232 or SDI-12

Cable Length Supplied with 5m of cable. Custom sizes also available.

Dimensions 9.6 cm X 3.5 cm X 1.5 cm
