» Ag xtr 28: Teros 12 sensor reading

Basic example that turns on, reads and turn off the sensor. Measured parameters are stored in the corresponding class variables and printed by the serial monitor.

Required Materials

- 1 Waspmote Plug & Sense! Smart Agriculture Xtreme
- 1 Teros 12

Notes

- This example is only valid for Waspmote v15

  ---------- - [Ag_xtr_28] - Teros 12 sensor reading --------------------

  Explanation: Basic example that turns on, reads and turn off the
  sensor. Measured parameters are stored in the corresponding class
  variables and printed by the serial monitor.

  Measured parameters:
  - Electrical conductivity
  - Volumetric water content
  - Temperature of the soil

  SELECT THE RIGHT SOCKET FOR EACH SENSOR.

  Possible sockets for this sensor are:
  - XTR_SOCKET_A       _________
  - XTR_SOCKET_B      |---------|
  - XTR_SOCKET_C      | A  B  C |
  - XTR_SOCKET_D      |_D__E__F_|


  Example: a 5TM sensor on socket A will be
  [Sensor Class] [Sensor Name] [Selected socket]
  Decagon_5TM    mySensor      (XTR_SOCKET_A);
