The smart qubix™ soil sensor is a satellite unit which can be connected via hardwire or wirelessly to the controller using the ZigBee Gateway.
The unit consists of the following sensors:
- Soil moisture
- Soil temperature
Soil Moisture Sensor
The smart qubix™ soil moisture sensor is a simple breakout unit for measuring the moisture levels in soil and substrate materials. The soil moisture sensor is easy to use. The two large exposed pads function as the sensor probes and act as a variable resistor. The higher the moisture level of the soil, the better the conductivity between the pads resulting in a lower resistance and a higher SIG out.
Soil Temperature Sensor
This sealed digital temperature probe precisely measures temperatures in wet environments using a simple one-wire interface. The DS18B20 provides 9 to 12-bit (configurable) temperature readings over a one-wire interface and consists of only one wire (and ground).
