Soil moisture sensor DSM-12

Price on request

The DSM-12 sensor measures volumetric water content - the ratio of water volume to soil volume in percent- and has an output digital/analog signal. Can be connected to DS Logger 345, DS Logger 500 and to DLC.

With the DSM-12 sensor, it is easy to carry out soil moisture measurements - when used in irrigated agriculture, water saving for irrigation can reach from 30% to 50%. The sensor can be used in the ground for a long time, and continuous instrument reading allows you to compare data between seasons.  It is reliable and free of maintenance after installation into the soil (IP68 environment-proofed). The high precision sensor can be used in  irrigation, hydrology, monitoring of soil conditions, and application in forestry.
