Soil Moisture Sensor

TEROS-10

If a verification clip is not available, test basic sensor functionality in air and water. The TEROS-10 will read ~0.64 m3/m3 in water and a slightly negative value in air.
Note: The sensors are optimzed to read in soils, therefore the sensor will not read 100% in pure liquid water. Values above use the mineral soil calibration.

Installation Tool:
Proper installation of the sensors is critical for proper operation. Refer to the TEROS-10 User Manual for details. For easy installation, use the borehole installation tool. The installation tool (shown below) is available for rent from us.

Description

Preparation:
Inspect and verify TEROS-10 components. The TEROS verification clip gives the best assessment of proper sensor function and accuracy. The TEROS-10 should read 0.35 to 0.42 m3/m3 on the verification clip.
