Itokii PRO INDUSTRIAL Soil Moisture Sensor

Itokii PRO INDUSTRIAL Soil Moisture Sensor

SKU: ITS2-9-IN-WS-WM-L05

Product Description

It’s easy to know your soil’s water and temperature condition with the Itokii PRO Soil Moisture Sensor. It provides a highly effective way to improve irrigation scheduling and efficiency. You’ll know when and where to water your crops, plants, or landscape from the data you gather. See water tension to prevent water stress.

The Soil Moisture Sensor measures soil water tension (matric potential) and temperature.

With a resistive granular matrix element, you can optimize your tension parameters to determine the earliest indication of water stress and make sure you irrigate before it reaches that point. The unique element feature delivers consistent calibration without needing to recalibrate for every installation.

 

The Sensor also has a thermistor-based temperature element. Its readings will help you assess temperature -40°C to 125°C (-40°F to 257°F) and the moisture’s temperature compensation, eliminating the need to measure moisture every time the soil temperature changes.

 

Features

Safe to use in both hot and freezing temperatures -

Reports matric potential (soil water tension) which is the best indicator of water availability in the soil. 

Moisture readings in centibar and kPa - 0 to 240 centibar (kPA)

Will not dissolve in soil - Internally compensated for commonly found salinity levels - Easy to install and use compared to traditional tensiometers 

Stainless steel electrodes - No maintenance required

Temperature readings in C/F. - 5 ft removable lead

 

 

  • PRO - Leading Enterprise Grade "Internet of Things" Solutions

    PRO sensors offer 3 to 4 times the range of standard sensor platforms, extending non-line-of-sight reach to an exceptional 1,000+ feet through walls (12-14 walls typical). Using Frequency-hopping Spread Spectrum (FHSS) also allows PRO sensors to have better interference immunity from other wireless devices.

    Superior power management provides PRO sensors with almost twice the battery life of Itokii’s standard wireless sensors.

  • Coin cell sensors typically last 3+ years.
  • AA and Industrial sensors typically last up to 10+ years.
  • If ordering NIST certified temperature sensors orders may take up to 6 weeks to ship.

    PRO products employ  new Encrypt-RF™ Security (256-bit Diffie Hellman key exchange and AES-128 CBC encryption for all sensor data messages), so security is maintained at all communication points from sensor to gateway, gateway to software, then back again.

     

    Integrated on-board data storage allows PRO sensors to store data messages if communication to a wireless gateway is disrupted (power outage, Internet outage, or out of range). Messages that can’t be delivered will be time-stamped and stored in memory (up to the last 512 messages) until communication with the gateway is restored, at which point the messages will all be transmitted.

    Over-the-air updates allow PRO products to be updated remotely if new fixes or features become available.

    Itokii PRO Industrial Sensors come in an IP65, NEMA 4X, CE rated, sealed, and weatherproof enclosure. They are powered by a single, replaceable, Industrial grade 3.6 V battery (included).

    An optional solar powered version is also available. The solar powered version includes a Lithium Iron Phosphate rechargeable battery in conjunction with a solar power cell to keep the battery charged and at optimal capacity. If there is no light present at the solar cell, the battery alone could continue to power the sensor for up to 8-10 years.
