This is a soil moisture sensor that detects the moisture level in soil, the reading is high when the soil is dry.
- If the sensor is not in use for a long time, please store in a dry container to prevent oxidation due to moisture.
- A warning line is printed on the module, do not insert the sensor deeper than this line as this may cause damage to the circuitry.
Connecting the module
Connect the Environment Module to Armourbit with a 4Pin cable first, then connect the sensor to the module with a 3Pin cable.
