Accuracy, 0.25s Rise Times Unaffected by Condensation or Water Immersion
Pittsford, NY, USA - Saelig Company, Inc. (Saelig) (www.saelig.com) has announced the recent addition of a new line of fully integrated capacitive temperature and humidity sensors and sensing modules for ambient environmental measurements. The sensors offer 0.25-second rise times and consistent, reliable operation that is completely unaffected by condensation or water immersion. They are ideal for use in a myriad of applications, such as air conditioning (HVAC), meteorology/weather measurement, home appliance, aeronautics, museum or gallery archival conservation and military and qualification laboratories, among others.
Sensors incorporate patented, four-layer technology, exclusive to the manufacturer, which allows the products to offer consistent, exceptional thermal stability under environmental conditions of 0 to 100% relative humidity, in temperatures ranging from -90 to +85įC. Their miniature (9 x 8 mm) passive sensing elements vary capacitance with humidity and resistance with temperature, and are all fully interchangeable, without need for recalibration.
Standalone sensing modules are also available from Saelig as plug-in microsystems with digital output (pinned board-level components or housed modules with Molex(TM) milli-grid sockets) for immediate end user application, with versions available for measurement of temperature, humidity, or both. Loop powered versions (4-20 mA output) are also available.
The sensors are manufactured in France by UPSI (www.upsi.fr), an industry pioneer with more than 30 years of experience in the design and development of this technology. Units are available in North America exclusively from Saelig, with units starting at $6.80.
