Soil Moisture sensor
« on: January 23, 2022, 09:07:30 AM »
Hi

I have managed to get hold of a new soil moisture sensor for 20..  \:D/

I don't know which cable is supposed to go where.. one is green with a white stripe, the other is just green. Which ones goes left and which one goes right? I can't find any info on it..

Many thanks!

Thought as much, as I'm getting a reading. I just wanted to make sure

Thanks Bashy.

I'm plumbing lots of pipes to bury the temp/moisture probes - bit of nightmare but almost there!

I have the manual in my hand, but it doesn't say anything about the wires themselves. Sorted now.
