Overview

HOBOnode sensors monitor temperature and soil moisture conditions and wirelessly transmit the data back to your computer.


Features

  • Fast, easy deployment - sensor's compact size, integrated solar-rechargeable battery makes deployment a snap.
  • .0 to 100% soil moisture range
  • Software provides real-time graphs and alarms to cell phones or local PC; data can be exported for use in other programs.
  • 150 to 300 m (500 to 1000 ft) range with clear line-of-sight. Repeaters are available to extend range.
  • Research-grade reliability and accuracy
  • Complete system requires: Receiver, Sensor, HOBOnode Viewer software. A Repeater is required for greater distances.(sold separately)
  • Includes bracket for convenient mounting on pole or stake

Specifications

  • Measurement Range:0 to 100% volumetric water content (m^3/m^3)
  • Accuracy - 3.1% (m^3/m^3)
  • Resolution - 0.07% (m^3/m^3)
  • Sample rate -1 reading per minute
  • Battery life - 1 yr typical w/o charging; 3 yrs typical w/ solar charging
  • Size -16.5cm x 5cm; 3.7m cable to sensor (6.5" x 2"; 12' cable)
  • Memory - None in HOBOnodes; requires HOBOnode Viewer to be running for data storage.
  • Transmission range - 150 to 300 m (500 to 1000 ft) range with clear line-of-sight. Any obstructions such as vegetation or walls will reduce range significantly.
  • Wireless Data Standard - IEEE 802.15.4, 2.4 GHz ISM band (license free worldwide) - Click here for local RF Regulation Compliance
  • Operating Range -20° to 50°C (-4° to 122°F) - with optional Lithium Batteries: -40° to 50°C (-40° to 122°F) - Use optional Lithium Batteries in low-temerature and high-temperature applications.
  • Environmental rating - HOBOnodes and Receiver: NEMA 6P, IP68; Repeater: NEMA 4X
  • Setup/Installation:
    • recommend 8' x 1-1/4", schedule 40 PVC pipe for mounting (purchase through local building supply store)
    • for windy locations we also recommend our Guy Wire Kit (M-GWK) and ½" Stake Kit (M-SKA)
    • note that the HOBOnodes should not be mounted on or near metal surfaces.
