The rugged RT-1 soil temperature sensor is an easy-to-use sensor for measuring the temperature of soil or other materials.
|Temperature Accuracy||-40° to -20°C: ± 1.0°C
5° to 40°C: ± 0.5°C
40° to 50°C and -20 to 5°C: better than ± 1.0°C
|Temperature Range||-40° to 80°C|
|Operating Environment||-40° to 80°C|
|Cable Length||5 m|
|Cable Connector Types||3.5 mm “stereo” plug|
|Sensor Dimensions||2 cm x .075 cm|
|Data Logger Compatibility||Decagon Em50 Series, Decagon Em5b logger, ProCheck|

The sensor is stainless steel, completely water proof, submersible, and designed for continuous outdoor use.
The rugged temperature sensor can be used with either the Em5B logger or the Em50 logger series. However, typical users of the Em50 series logger prefer to measure soil temperature in conjunction with their soil moisture measurement using the 5TM.
