The model CS-2W-MOIST is used in conjunction with the 2-Wire option, model CS3-2WIRE-OPT, offered only with the Calsense model CS3000 irrigation controller. The combination of sensor/decoder comes standard with a 16-foot cable for proper moisture sensor placement, and with the ability to wire one remote control valve to the 2-Wire cable. Moisture sensors can be installed anywhere on the 2-Wire path.

Smart technology enables assigning the decoder’s serial number associated with a specific moisture sensor location, to a group of like stations at the controller. The model CS3000 compares the sensor reading measured at the beginning of each irrigation cycle to the user-defined set point to determine when to stop irrigation. The CS-2W-MOIST will report the soil temperature as well at the moment measurements are taken.
