Interesting Application Moisture Sensing


Thread Starter


I have an interesting application that I need a sensor for. I am developing a field deployable grain moisture measurement device. It will be used to test the moisture content of corn kernels while still on the cob on the plant and without disturbing the husk. I need a sensor that will penetrate about 5mm to get to mid kernel depth and takes the majority of its measurement only at that point making the husk and silks moisture content have a negligible effect on the reading.
