The leaf wetness smart sensor provides accurate leaf wetness data in a number of growing and research applications. The sensor is ready to use and does not require any painting or coating. It uses a capacitive grid that is less sensitive to surface residues than resistive grid-based sensors and comes preconditioned for consistent measurements between sensors and for long-term stability. Along with a 3-meter cable, a mounting bracket is included so the sensor can be easily positioned to mimic the wet-dry characteristics of the plants being studied.
This is a plug-and-play smart sensor, who is compatible with RX, H21, H22, and U30 loggers (stations). This sensor operates in an outdoor environment, the S-LWA-M003 sensor supports the following measurement: leaf wetness.

Stability: < ± 5% per year
Measurement averaging option: no
Housing: no coating required
Sensor type: capacitive grid
Cable length: 3 meters
Length of smart sensor network cable: 3 meters
Mounting bracket: 20 cm long: sensor can be positioned at any angle between 0 and 90 degrees (vertical)
