Rasperberry Pi 3 with SEN0193 Capacitive Soil Moisture Sensor- Corrosion Resistant

This topic is on Behalf of Deakin University, we have purchased Raspberry Pi and Capacitive Soil Moisture Sensor- Corrosion Resistant from core electronics.

Can you help me with Circuit diagram and coding for the same. !

I have attached below picture for reference


Unfortunately, the link in the product doesn’t work.

Try this one.

DFRobot recently upgraded their commerce site and now it seems their Wiki. We’ll give it a couple of days to see if anything changes with structure and then update everything on our side.

I just Visited the link you provided, but it is for Capacitive Soil Moisture Sensor with DFRduino. While I am looking for Capacitive Soil Moisture Sensor with Raspberry Pi 3. Thank you.

The sensor doesn’t care what controller you hook it to. The code in the documentation is example code of how to interface with it. You’ll have to do your own porting to python.

As the pi doesn’t have analogue inputs, you’ll have to cater for that with some other hardware such as this.

We have already purchased this ( ADS1115 16-Bit ADC - 4 Channel With Programmable Gain Amplifier. Can you help us with the coding now and circuit diagram as well.


Copied from the product description for the ADS1115:
“To get you started, Adafruit have example code for both the Raspberry Pi (in Adafruit’s Adafruit Pi Python library) and Arduino (in Adafruit’s ADS1X15 Arduino library repository) Simply connect GND to ground, VDD to your logic power supply, and SCL/SDA to your microcontroller’s I2C port and run the example code to start reading data.”

If you want the circuit diagram for the sensor, follow the links previously posted.
