Decagon 5TE Sensor

FarmSolutions Intergates with Decagon 5TE sensors

The Decagon sensor is designed to measure the water content, electrical conductivity, and temperature of soil. It uses an oscillator running at 70 MHz to measure the dielectric permittivity of soil to determine the water content. A thermistor in thermal contact with the sensor prongs provides the soil temperature, while the screws on the surface of the sensor form a two-sensor electrical array to measure electrical conductivity.

    Sensor Features
  • Measures salt levels through bulk electrical conductivity.
  • Makes all three measurements (volumetric Water content, temperature and EC) independently
  • Steel screws make the 5TE a more robust sensor.
  • Utilizes a five point dielectric calibration to provide more accurate dielectric permittivity measurements.
  • Uses a 70MHz frequency, which minimizes salinity and textural effects, making it accurate in most soils.
