Gardena Soil Moisture Sensor
Automatically detects moisture to save water
The Soil Moisture Sensor by Gardena allows for automatic irrigation set to the moisture that you want. If the ground is moist enough, the sensor will keep it from being watered, saving water and your garden. For use in conjunction with the irrigation computers MasterControl solar, Master Control and Multi Control. With these computers even purely sensor-controlled irrigation is possible. The Soil Moisture Sensor can be simply plugged into the ground. It electronically measures the temperature of the soil and is durable and reliable. The desired humidity level can be set via a rotary knob. The current soil moisture can also be read. The Soil Moisture Sensor is supplied with 5 m cable. To operate, it requires two 1.5V alkaline batteries (not included). These provide reliable measurement results for about a year. When they start to get low, a low battery condition is indicated. Note: The Soil Moisture Sensor can be connected to the following products: GARDENA Water Computer Easy Control, Flex Control, Select Control, GARDENA Water Timer T 1030 card, Multi Control, MultiControl duo, MasterControl MasterControl solar, irrigation controllers 4040 modular, 4030 and 6030, control parts and Flower Box Watering.
