Proto-PIC PPMB00113 Moisture Sensor for micro:bit

The moisture sensor for micro:bit allows your micro:bit to detect moisture, so if your plant is thirsty you’ll know about it! or how about using one and a couple of micro:bits to tell you when your bath has reached the correct level?

To hook this up to your micro bit you will require alligator cables alternatively you can solder headers or a screw terminal to the board to make hooking it up to your other micro controller projects a dream.

  1. Martin Scott

    Got this for a family plant watering project during lock-down, perfect for teaching coding as well as a bit of horticulture.
    Beware that the feedback obtained from the moisture sensor when dry usually around 200 units off of a wet reading. The trick is to set up the loop to water when the moisture sensor reads between these two numbers!
