Traditional soil moisture sensors are prone to corrosion with a limited lifespan regardless of measures taken.

This capacitive soil moisture sensor features no exposed plating and uses capacitive sensing to detect soil moisture. The result is a much more robust sensor without the usual corrosion worries!

The sensor has a built-in voltage regulator that supports 3.3V, meaning it can work with a 3.3V development board as well as 5V. To use this with the Raspberry Pi, an ADC (analogue to digital convertor) will need to be used (such as an ADC HAT) to convert the analogue signal from the sensor.

  • Sensor type: Analogue
  • Operating voltage: 3.3 VDC
  • Output voltage: 0-3.0 VDC
  • Interface: PH2.54 3-pin
  • Size: 98 x 23mm

Package Contents

  • 1x Capacitive Soil Moisture Sensor
