Additional specifications and description
For the growth of top-notch plants, a healthy soil moisture and water balance must be maintained. Plants in dry soil stunt and wilt due to nutrient deficiencies. Plants grow less resistant to dry conditions later in their life cycles and are more susceptible to disease pressure in wet soil. The plant will become suffocated and die from excessive watering. Agrichemicals are less likely to leach when irrigation is done effectively.
Connect the soil moisture sensor
This adapter box is designed for the SWCSM-075 soil moisture sensor. The two RJ45 sockets make it possible to connect multiple sensors while maintaining the line topology of the Modbus RTU network. The sensors can be daisy-chained. Both 24 V DC power supply and Modbus RTU communication can be connected via a UTP cable with RJ45 connector. The SWCSM-075 moisture sensor has an integrated cable with M12 connector that can be connected to this adaptor box.
The enclosure is made of high-quality r-ABS VO (UL94) plastic. This material is very tough and offers good protection against impacts. It offers an IP65 protection against ingress of dust and water.
