The soil moisture kit is an affordable instrument for obtaining reliable moisture measurements. The HH150 Meter displays volumetric water content (% volume) and is suitable for Horticulture research.
The SM150 Soil Moisture Kit provides an affordable and easy-to-use tool for obtaining reliable moisture measurements with minimal soil or substrate disturbance. The volumetric water content is displayed on the HH150. This high quality kit is covered by a five year warranty.
The HH150 hand moisture meter is lightweight and is very easy to use, being a readout-only device (no data recording or PC complications). Operation is simple – just insert the SM150T into the soil or substrate and press the Read button to make a reading.
The SM150 Kit comes with substrate calibrations for perlite, coir, peat, and mineral wool, as well as soils – providing a rapid, rugged solution for checking the uniformity of growing conditions for many types of growing media. The SM150T is easy to insert and install – its sharp pins minimise soil disturbance and preserve the original soil structure around the measurement rods.
Please note that although the SM150T Sensor has a built-in temperature sensor, the HH150 Moisture Meter does not measure or display temperature.
