Measures Water content, EC and Temperature
Complete kit with readout unit & case
The WET Kit provides researchers with a powerful portable tool for assessing growing conditions in soils and substrates. The WET Kit measures and displays 3 important variables that influence plant growth: water content, temperature and pore water conductivity (ECp) – the EC of the water available to the plant.
The kit comprises a WET Sensor, an HH2 Moisture Meter (readout unit) and a carry case.
Three types of WET Kit are available – each with a different set of substrate calibrations, including coir, peat and mineral wool. Please download our Soil Moisture Measurement catalogue or contact Delta-T Devices for ordering information.
