Gardena Soil Moisture Sensor

Automatic, water-saving irrigation
With the Gardena Soil Moisture Sensor, the moisture of the soil is considered for automatic irrigation. Irrigation is not started, or an ongoing irrigation is interrupted, when the soil is sufficiently moist – that helps to save water.

In combination with the Water Computers MasterControl solar, MasterControl and MultiControl, even purely sensor-controlled irrigation is possible.

The Soil Moisture Sensor is simply stuck into the ground beside the plants, and electronically, durably and reliably measures temperature differences in the earth. You can set the desired moisture level with the rotary knob. The current moisture level can be read. The Soil Moisture Sensor is supplied with 5 m connecting cable. For operation, two 1.5 V alkaline batteries are required (not included). These ensure reliable measurement results for approx. one year. A weak battery level is indicated.

Note: The Soil Moisture Sensor can be connected to the following products: Gardena Water Control Flex (1890-34) Gardena Water Computers EasyControl (Art. No. 1881), FlexControl (Art. No. 1883), SelectControl (Art. No. 1885), T 1030 card (Art. No. 1830), MultiControl (Art. No. 1862), MultiControl duo (Art. No. 1874), MasterControl (Art.

Automatically water saving irrigation
When the soil is moist enough, your automatic irrigation system will not be started, or an ongoing irrigation will be interrupted – in this way you can save water and still have beautiful and healthy plants. Together with the Gardena Water Computers, the Soil Moisture Sensor can open and close the water flow depending on the soil moisture.

Soil moisture level individually adjustable
The desired soil moisture level can be easily set with a large rotary knob.

Reliable on long term
The Soil Moisture Sensor durably and electronically measures the temperature differences in the soil, and derives the moisture of the soil from these – precise and reliable.

Easy to use
The five-metre-long connecting cable allows flexible connection of the Soil Moisture Sensor.
Energy supply - 2 x 1.5 V alkaline (LR 14/C/round cell) batteries (not included)
