Leveraging Toro sensing technology used on high-end commercial sites and world-class golf
courses around the globe, the Toro Precision™ Soil Sensor reduces water waste by continuously measuring moisture levels in the soil and determining when to allow your controller to water.
This maximizes the efficiency of your irrigation system. Communication between the sensor probe and receiver is completely wireless, so installation is quick and easy with no digging required
Features & Benefits
- Works with Any Irrigation Controller - Can be installed on any irrigation controller, including competitive
- Prevents Overwatering
Continuously measures soil moisture levels and determines when to
allow your irrigation controller to water, making sure just the right
amount of water is applied.
- No Digging Required
Communication between the sensor probe and the receiver is
completely wireless, with up to a 500’ range (line of sight).
doesn’t disturb the soil, giving you accurate moisture readings
starting as soon as the sensor is put in the ground.
- Automatic Calibration
The sensor will automatically detect the soil type and adjust all
- Freeze Detection
The only soil sensor to offer freeze detection that prevents irrigation
when temperatures approach freezing.
How It Works
- There are two components to the system - a battery-powered wireless sensor probe and a receiver that wires into any irrigation controller’s sensor port.
- Once installed, the sensor calculates field capacity for your soil (or the
maximum amount of water the soil can hold after excess water has
drained away) and sets that as “100%”.
- Any time the moisture level in the soil exceeds field capacity, the irrigation controller is prevented from watering until the moisture level falls below the level set in the receiver (default is 50% of field capacity, adjustable by the user).
