SMART QUBIX SOIL SENSOR ZIGBEE
The Smart Qubix Soil Sensor is a satellite box which can be wirelessly connected to the controller using the Zigbee Gateway and has the following sensors:
- Soil moisture
- Soil temperature
SOIL MOISTURE SENSOR
The Smart Qubix Soil Moisture Sensor is a simple breakout for measuring the moisture in soil and similar materials. The soil moisture sensor is pretty straight forward 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.
SOIL TEMPERATURE SENSOR
This sealed digital temperature probe lets you precisely measure temperatures in wet environments with a simple 1-Wire interface. The DS18B20 provides 9 to 12-bit (configurable) temperature readings over a 1-Wire interface, so that only one wire (and ground) needs to be connected from a central microprocessor.
