Additional Sensors

Leaf and Soil Moisture/Temperature Station

The Leaf and Soil Moisture/Temperature Station. This additional station lets you know exactly what’s going from your plant’s’ point of view. You can base irrigation on weather factors, but what about the quality of your soil? Is the water running off or soaking deep into the root area? Bury soil moisture sensors (up to four) at different locations and depths, and you’ll know for sure. Leaf wetness sensors mimic a leaf surface – it’s like being able to talk to your plants!

Solar-powered station includes transmitter and battery inside weather-resistant shelter. Sensors are sold separately, letting you build the station that matches your needs. To view the data, add a wireless Vantage Pro2 console/receiver (#6312), or Weather Envoy (#6316) or WeatherLink. Each can receive data from either:

  • A single fully-populated station with 2 Leaf Wetness Sensors (#6420), 4 Soil Moisture Sensors (#6440), and 4 Temperature Probes (#6470), or
  • Two partially-populated stations, one with 2 leaf wetness sensors and 2 temperature probes, and the other with 4 soil moisture sensors and 4 temperatures probes.

A Complete Soil Moisture/Temperature Station (#06345CS) includes 4 soil moisture sensors and 4 temperature probes.

Not compatible with original Vantage Pro stations.

Leaf Wetness Sensor, Vantage Pro® and Vantage Pro2™

Use to monitor the level of surface moisture on foliage, with range from 0 (completely dry) to 15 (saturated). Add up to 2 sensors to a single Wireless Leaf & Soil Moisture/Temperature Station. Includes 40′ (12 m) cable.

Compatible with both original Vantage Pro and Vantage Pro2. The Leaf Wetness Sensor must be connected via a Leaf & Soil Moisture/Temperature Station (#6345).

 

 

 

 

Soil Moisture Sensor, Vantage Pro® and Vantage Pro2™

Watermark® soil moisture sensor uses electrical resistance to measure the moisture level of the soil. Does not require periodic maintenance during the growing season. Simply bury at the desired depth, then monitor moisture levels throughout the season. Add up to 4 sensors to a single Leaf & Soil Moisture/Temperature Station. Includes 15′ (4.6m) cable.

Compatible with Vantage Pro and Vantage Pro2. The Soil Moisture Sensor must be connected via a Leaf & Soil Moisture/Temperature Station (#6345)

 

 

 

Stainless Steel Temperature Probe with Two-Wire Termination

Multi-purpose temperature probe with 2-1/2″ (64 mm)-long stainless steel housing.

Use to measure temperature of air, soil, or water. Add up to four probes to a single Leaf & Soil Moisture/Temperature Station. Includes 15′ (4.6 m) direct-burial cable.

Compatible with both original Vantage Pro and Vantage Pro2.
