Soil PH Sensor
Soil pH sensor is a device used to measure the acidity or alkalinity of soil, which can be used to assess the suitability of soil for different crops. Soil ph monitor is a crucial tool in precision agriculture as it can provide valuable information on soil conditions, allowing farmers to adjust soil pH and improve crop yields and quality.

Advantages and related products
1. soil pH sensor is simple to use, has few operating steps, does not need to add reagents, and does not limit the number of detections.
2. The measurement accuracy of the sensor is high, up to ±0.3PH accuracy, and the response speed is very fast.
3. The electrode is made of specially treated alloy material, which can withstand strong external impact and is not easy to damage.
4. The sensor shell is completely sealed, resistant to acid and alkali corrosion, and can be buried in the soil for long-term dynamic detection.
5. The probe plug-in design ensures accurate measurement and reliable performance.
How to use a soil pH sensor?
When using it for the first time, you need to plug it in the soil several times to remove the oxide film on the surface of the probe. Then insert the probe vertically into the soil, which requires avoiding rocks. Besides, you can manually dig a pit in the ground, then insert the sensor horizontally into the pit wall and bury the map.
Measuring area of soil pH sensor
The measurement area is a cylinder with a diameter of 5 cm and the same height as the probe with the center of the two probes as the center. As the picture shows:
φ=5cm, cylinder with the same height as the probe
Precautions for using soil pH sensor
1. All probes must be inserted into the soil during measurement.
2. Pay attention to lightning protection when used in the field.
3. Do not bend the probe violently, pull the lead wire of the sensor forcefully, and do not hit or hit the sensor violently.
4. The sensor’s protection grade is IP68, and the sensor can be soaked in water.
5. Due to the presence of radiofrequency electromagnetic radiation in the air, it is not suitable to stay energized in the air for a long time.
