Mini Wireless Soil Cub Moisture Sensor – Wifi
The innovative new EarthScout Soil Cub is an affordable, miniature 4.5"x3"x2" commercial grade sensor that's installed in the field to monitor soil moisture, soil temperature and EC at two soil depths so growers can see moisture and nutrient levels throughout the root zone and adjust inputs. The device lasts all season with one charge, installs in minutes, and is maintenance free.
Soil Cub uses wifi to communicate field data to the EarthScout solar powered cellular gateway (sold separately) up to two miles away by line of sight when installed with our 12' flag antenna. The cellular gateway then relays the data to a cell tower and then to the EarthScout app on the grower's smart phone. The gateway also measures air temperature and humidity for a total of 5 key data points. Up to 15 wifi enabled Soil Cubs can communicate with one cellular gateway, giving farmers real time insights into air and soil conditions across a 4-mile diameter. Soil Cub gives the grower the data they need during a drought to gradually reduce and lock in irrigation at ideal levels for healthy growth - safely above the wilting point.
Soil data is transmitted from the cellular gateway to the EarthScout App on the farmers smart phone where it's presented with intuitive charts so they know when and how much to irrigate, spray, and more.
Includes two Soil Moisture Sensors for capturing soil data at two depths. Each sensor reports:
- Soil Moisture
- Soil Temperature
- Soil EC
