Established Humidity Sensors Get Protective Covers

Established Humidity Sensors Get Protective Covers
Sensirion AG

Sensirion is offering a protective cover for select humidity sensors in the SHT3x series. The protective cover is an optional polyimide foil directly attached to the top surface of the sensor. It covers the SHT3x’s complete sensing area and thus acts as a reliable shield against pollution during SMT assembly of the sensor and subsequent processes, such as conformal coating or potting. The protective cover is designed to withstand multiple reflow soldering cycles. To enable correct sensor operation, it must be removed after assembly. A flap on the cover extends over the outer dimensions of the sensor package on one side and is designed to allow the cover to be peeled off easily with tweezers. After peeling off, the sensor will operate as specified in the datasheet. For more information, visit http://www.sensirion.com/sht3x
