Pin-type Humidity Sensor Is Easily Replaceable

Sensirion’s SHT85 pin-type relative humidity sensor features a pin-type connector for easy integration and replacement. According to its maker, the sensor’s unique package design allows for the best possible thermal coupling to the environment and decoupling from potential heat sources on the main board. The SHT85 features a PTFE membrane dedicated to protecting the sensor opening from liquids and dust according to IP67, without affecting the response time of the relative humidity signal.

 

The company’s CMOSens technology offers a complete sensor system on a single chip, consisting of a capacitive humidity sensor, a bandgap temperature sensor, analog and digital signal processing, ADC, calibration data memory, and a digital communication interface supporting I2C fast mode. The sensor covers a humidity measurement range of 0 to 100% relative humidity and a temperature measurement range of -40°C to +105°C with a typical accuracy of ±1.5% RH and ±0.1°C. The supply voltage of 2.15V to 5.5V make the SHT85 perfectly suited to a wide range of applications. For greater illumination, peruse the SHT85 datasheet and/or email [email protected].
