Honeywell has released the HumidIcon Digital Temperature/Humidity Sensors, HIH-6131/6130 Series, which offers energy efficiency, steadiness, and accuracy in a product that combines temperature sensing and digital output humidity.
This product could be made use of in microenvironment and medical applications and in HVAC-refrigeration, medical incubators and respiratory therapy. These sensors have a total error band, which would provide superior sensor interchangeability, handle system uptime, support warranty and system accuracy needs and give their customers a great advantage.
The other humidity sensors available in the market need to undergo a 12-hour at 75%RH rehydration process for correction of the reflow temperature offset, whereas the Honeywell device needs only a 5-hour rehydration process, thus resulting in long term stability, which would decrease issues in system performance. The need for regular recalibration of the sensor is also eliminated and hence creates savings.
The sensing element’s multilayer construction helps to supply reliability. The sensor’s digital I2C output would help the customers to eliminate the parts connected to signal conditioning from the PCB, to decrease expenses and also open up space and thus help to reduce problems that could crop up from by the use of multiple signal conditioning parts over the PCB.
This ultra-small SOIC-8 SMD pin pack is available in two configurations, the HIH-6131 and HIH-6130. Its low energy consumption and cost-effectiveness helps its easy installation and thus can be used in several condensing environments.
