Quick method: Wire splicing and sealing technique for soil moisture sensors

 

 

Employing a durable wire-splicing technique is very important when considering the harsh environments the connection must withstand. Strong connections that are sealed from moisture are more likely to resist failure due to corrosion, electrical shorts, or broken wire connections. There are two possible wire-splicing methods to not only strengthen the area around the connection against physically breaking but also keep moisture out.
