Arduino and Raspberry Pi client software libraries.
Dust and waterproof
Calibration functions for EC and Dielectric permittivity
Low cost and easy to use.
Fairly accurate readings
5V-3V System Level Converter NOT included(picture. No.2)
|Supply voltage (VCC), V||2.5||3.3||3.5|
|Working current（VCC=3.3V）, mA||-||11||14|
|Operating Temperature Range, Celsius||-20||25||60|
Dielectric permittivity (ε) (Temperature corrected) resolution: 0.1ε (avg.Tolerance 5%) and range 1 (air) to 80 (water)
(Experimental) Electrical Conductivity (mS/m) resolution: 0.01 mS/m (avg.Tolerance 30%)
Temperature (°C) resolution: 0.1°C and range: -20 to 60°C (avg.Tolerance 3%)
Degree of water saturation in the soil (%) resolution:0.1% and range: 0 – 100%
Volumetric water content - VWC calculation from Dielectric permittivity ε. VWC = 0.002974 * pow(ε,2) + 0.07424 * ε -1.295;
WARNING!!! 3.3 voltage levels only, more voltage will damage device
Raspberry Pi pin #1 - sensor red (3.3v)
Raspberry Pi pin #3 - sensor green (SDA)
Raspberry Pi pin #5 - sensor white (SCL)
Raspberry Pi pin #9 - sensor black (GND)
Raspberry Pi pin #9 - sensor shield(GND)
see this manual
This sample software demonstrates how to make a command-line interface for the sensor. The sensor default I2C address is 0x63.
To get the software to execute following on Raspberry Pi:
git clone https://github.com/tinovi/i2cRaspberry
chmod 777 *.sh to add permissions for execute
./mk.sh to make demo executable
./read.sh to read data from the sensor
./svcs 0x63 addr 0x65 to change default address 0x63 to new I2C address: 0x65
WARNING!!! for SDA and SCL lines use sensor VCC (VCC max 3.6v) voltage levels only. Please use the voltage level converter module, connect the sensor to B side, 5v Arduino to A side (see picture)
Arduino pin #3V3 - sensor red (3.3v)
Arduino pin #A4 - sensor green (SDA)
Arduino pin #A5 - sensor white (SCL)
Arduino pin #GND - sensor black (GND)
Arduino pin #GND - sensor shield (GND)
SDA and SCL lines require pull-up resistors to VCC line (VCC max 3.6v), we recommend to use 1.8K resistors, because of long wiring to i2c sensor.
This sample software demonstrates how to read data from the sensor.
The sensor default I2C address is 0x63.
Download Arduino library from there.
For esp32 please use the esp32 git branch of library repo.
