Frequently Asked Questions about Soil Moisture Sensors
From this point forward, all soil moisture sensors will be referred to as ECH2O probes. Onset adds smart sensor adapters to the ECH2O probes so that they are plug‐and‐play compatible with HOBO® U30 stations and HOBO Micro Stations. The S‐SMC‐M005 incorporates the EC‐5 and the S‐SMD‐M005 incorporates the 10HS. Onset also offers the W‐SMC HOBOnode wireless soil moisture sensor, which uses the ECH2O EC‐5 and provides data in the same format as the S‐SMC‐M005.This tech note aims to address frequently asked questions.
