Leaf Wetness Sensor TS 253
- The maximum electrical output is achieved for a wet
sensor, which is approximately 0.01 times the power
supply connected to the sensor.
The TS253 Sensor is designed to simulate a sheet and measure the dry / wet condition.
To do this, it uses a printed circuit board on which there are 2 conductive lines with a certain proximity to each other which are covered in gold to prevent corrosion from exposure to the weather. These 2 conductive lines are insulated, in the presence of moisture on the surface there is an electrical conduction between them. This can be interpreted as a variable resistance depending on the degree of existing humidity:
- Dry Sensor: R sensed = ∞
- Wet Sensor: R sensed = 0
