Leaf Wetness Sensor

Item name: Leaf Wetness Sensor

Catalogue number: PUTD-PHYTOS31

Device Description:

This sensor is adopted to test the wetness of plant leaf.

It will work with PUTD IOT Technology’s Smart Agriculture Device to form site test appliance. By uploading data through wireless network, this combination will be further working with our cloud base IOT software platform(PUTD DSS) to provide the data view of leaf wetness of plant.

Smart Agriculture Device:

This is the hardware platform which at one end interfaces with variety of industrial sensors for agriculture (leaf wetness sensor this time) to collect field data and at the other end adopting one of radio connectivity systems to exchange the information with application software resides in data centre.

Leaf Wetness Sensor

The Meter PHYTOS 31 leaf wetness sensor is standardized, calibrated, and designed to detect wetness (presence and duration) and ice formation right out of the box. No painting, baking, or user calibration required.

Each sensor is precisely factory-calibrated to detect tiny amounts of water and/or ice on the leaf surface. The sensor surface coating is non-hygroscopic, eliminating false wetness detection.

 

Mimics a Real Leaf

The sensor’s thin (0.65 mm) fiberglass construction closely approximates the overall radiation balance of a healthy leaf, so moisture will condense and evaporate from the sensor at the same rate as it would on a normal leaf.

 

Use the Leaf Wetness Sensor:

  • To predict when to spray crops.

  • To quantify water storage in the plant canopy.

  • In studying and monitoring crops for foliar diseases including rust and blight

PHYTOS 31 is from METER which is one of industrial leading companies in world in soil environmental test. (details)
