The Analog Capacitive Soil Moisture Sensor measures soil moisture levels by capacitive sensing, rather than resistive sensing like other types of moisture sensor. It is made of a corrosion resistant material, giving it a long service life. Insert it into soil and impress your friends with the real-time soil moisture data!
The product includes an on-board voltage regulator which gives it an operating voltage range of 3.3 ~ 5.5V. It is compatible with low-voltage MCUs (both 3.3V and 5V logic). This is a great addition to any arduino based gardening system, and plugs right into the RobotGeek Sensor Shield! To make it compatible with a Raspberry Pi, an ADC converter is required.
