Digital humidity sensor enables easy replacement in a many applications
Test & Measurement
The Sensirion digital humidity sensor SHT85 is a best-in-class humidity sensor with a pin-type connector for easy integration and replacement. The sensor is available now from RS Components. It builds on a highly accurate SHT3x sensor with long-term stability that is at the heart of the company's new humidity and temperature platform. The unique package design provides for the best possible thermal coupling to the environment and decoupling from potential heat sources on the main board. The device features a PTFE membrane dedicated to protecting the sensor opening from liquids and dust according to IP67 without affecting the response time of the RH signal.
It thus provides for sensor use under harsh environmental conditions such as high exposure to dust. Final accuracy testing on the product level ensures the best performance, making the device an excellent choice for even the most demanding applications.
