Six sensors, one device

The most affordable FS11  LoRa sensor measures important soil and microclimate data

  • Highly accurate soil moisture sensors at 0-10cm, 10-20cm and 20-30cm depth.
  • Air temperature and air humidity below the crop canopy for reliable disease pressure monitoring
  • Top layer soil temperature at 10 cm deep.
  • Low energy usage. Operates over a year on a simple replaceable battery.
  • Wireless data transmission with LoRA (requires a LoRaWAN gateway within a range of 1-2km outside The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Finland and Switzerland).
Seven sensors, modular design, global connectivity
