  The MEC10 Substrate and Soil Moisture, Temperature, and Electrical Conductivity (EC) sensor is an accurate tool for monitoring volumetric water content (VWC), temperature in soil and soilless substrates, and electrical conductivity. It sealed with resin packaged plastic body with sensing rods which can be insert directly into the soil or substrate with long time stability. The sensor is applicable for science research, irrigation, greenhouse, smart agriculture etc.
