Kitronik Prong Soil Moisture Sensor for BBC micro:bit

The Prong soil moisture sensor for BBC micro:bit is a sensor board that can be directly mounted to a BBC micro:bit to monitor the moisture present in soil. The two conductive tines are placed into the soil. Any water or moisture in the soil will conduct to give an analogue voltage that can be read by the BBC micro:bit. The Prong is powered from the 3V supply of the BBC micro:bit. Use either the USB or JST connector on the BBC micro:bit to power the circuit. The Prong and the BBC micro:bit can also be powered from the Mi:Power board to create a compact standalone unit. The board has been designed so that the BBC micro:bit can be bolted on using 3 x M3 nuts and 3 x M3 screws. Place the screws through the P1, 3V and GND holes of the PCB and BBC micro:bit, then use the M3 nuts to fasten together on the back of BBC micro:bit. Alternatively croc-clips can be used to connect between the Prong and the BBC micro:bit. The micro:bit is not included More
