A Sensor Pro in Every Discipline

Sensirion, the world’s leading provider of humidity and temperature sensors, is taking sensor technology to a new level this year. At the electronica in Munich, the technology pioneer presented the most advanced platform for humidity and temperature sensors: the Platform3x with the powerful SHT3x sensor series. As the market leader, Sensirion is launching an innovation that excels across the board and a sensor that outperforms all previous models.

The versatile Platform3x consists of a group of humidity and temperature sensors with different precision levels and features. The Platform3x is thus optimally designed for individual applications on the market. Whether for the cost-conscious, the groundbreaking or the high-end product that demands the best humidity and temperature sensor, the Platform3x impresses in every discipline and provides the ideal solution for all precision classes and various interfaces.

The SHT3x combines the strengths of the established SHT1x, the revolutionary SHT2x and the advanced SHTC1 series in a single, unique product. But that’s not all by a long way. The SHT3x includes a user programmable alert function, where the sensor can be used as a humidity and temperature guard. Moreover, Sensirion’s latest innovation contains another world premiere, an analog ratiometric voltage output. This is the first fully calibrated and linear digital/analog humidity and tempera-ture sensor. The SHT3x series thus combines multiple functions and various interfaces (I2C, voltage out) with a user-friendly, very wide operating voltage range (2.4 to 5.5 V). Like all sensors from Sensirion, the SHT3x is based on the unique CMOSens® Technology, which allows a high production volume at an exceptional price/performance ratio. In addition, the technology enables a small footprint of 2.5 x 2.5 mm with a height of 0.9 mm. So Sensirion has once again launched one of the smallest humidity sensors for applications over 2.4 V.

The SHT3x provides the ideal solution for all precision classes and various interfaces. It features a very wide supply voltage range (2.4 to 5.5 V) in a small package (2.5 x 2.5 x 0.9mm3. Moreover, Sensirion’s latest innovation is available with a digital (I2C) and analog voltage interface. Both interfaces are fully calibrated and have a linear output. The analog voltage output is proportional to humidity and temperature, which can be read out at two separate pins. Additionally, the digital version of SHT3x series includes a user programmable alert mode, which allows to use the sensor as a watchodg for humidity and temperature. Another world premiere which is included is the ART function. This function allows to electronically accelerate the humidity response by a factor of 2 to 3.
