Leaf Wetness Sensor
The HD3901 leaf wetness sensor detects the presence of condensation on its sensitive surface and has been designed to reproduce in an extremely accurate way the thermodynamic behaviour of a leaf. The leaf wetness degree is a basic information in the agricultural and floriculture fields to determine the most appropriate phytosanitary treatment to prevent mould and fungal infections in general that can affect the plants and crops in the presence
of condensation on the leaves.
- Reliable reproduction of the thermodynamic properties of a leaf
- Capacitive measurement principle for an accurate detection of even the smallest drops of water
- Double sensitive surface
- High resistance to chemical and atmospheric agents
- It can be installed in the field thanks to the IP67 degree of protection
The double sensitive surface allows to determine the wetness degree both on the top and on the bottom the leaf, important feature to get accurate indications, being that the two sides of the leaf have different drying times.
In order to ensure a long duration of the sensor, the surface of the sensor is specially treated to resist to the atmospheric agents and to the chemical agents present in pesticide products.
The circuit board, protected inside a sealed housing made of plastic material, allowing to achieve reliable measurements even in environments with high condensation.
The sensor is already supplied with factory-calibration and does not require any calibration by the user.
The output is 0.5 … 3 V analog voltage with a fixed 5 or 10 m connecting cable. Power supply 5… 18 Vdc.
