New Ground Temperature Sensors

MWS has puchased two new ground sensors which will join the existing one.

The existing ground sensor measures the grass temperature and is placed approximately 1cm above ground. This sensor is running on Channel 2.


We have just received two new sensors which we purchased last week and these will join the existing sensor to measure:

  1. Grass Temperature (Ground + 1cm)
  2. Ground Temperature (Ground - 1cm)
  3. Sub-Ground Temperature (Ground - 10cm)

This is subject to change.

Calibration is currently underway with all three being checked against each other in a glass of water in the fridge!
