Dust and water proof
Calibration functions for EC and Dielectric permittivity
Low cost and easy to use.
Fairly accurate readings
|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)
Electrical Conductivity (mS/m) resolution: 0.01 mS/m (avg.Tolerance 20%)
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)

This sample software demonstrates hot to make command line interface for the sensor. Sensor default I2C address is 0x63.
To get software 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 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 voltage level converter module, connect sensor to B side, 5v arduino to A side (see picture)
Arduiono pin #3V3 - sensor red (3.3v)
Arduiono pin #A4 - sensor green (SDA)
Arduiono pin #A5 - sensor white (SCL)
Arduiono pin #GND - sensor black (GND)
Arduiono pin #GND - sensor shield (GND)
SDA and SCL lines requires pull-up resistors to VCC line (VCC max 3.6v), we recommend to use 1.8K resistors, because of long wiring to i2c sensor.
