HygroVue 5 Digital Temperature and Relative Humidity Sensor

Designed for general meteorological and other data logging applications

The HygroVue™5 Temperature and Relative Humidity Sensor is designed for general meteorological and environmental monitoring applications. It uses the SDI-12 communications protocol to communicate with any SDI-12 recorder, simplifying installation and programming. The sensing element is easily changed in the field, reducing downtime and calibration costs. It is the entry-level sensor in the HygroVue™ line of relative humidity and temperature sensors.

Category:

The HygroVue 5 sensor has a user-replaceable chip element that incorporates both a temperature sensor and an RH sensor. Each element is individually calibrated with the calibration corrections stored on the chip.

Electronics within the HygroVue 5 control the measurement made by the sensor element, apply temperature and linearization corrections to the readings, and present the data via SDI-12 to a data logger.

A stainless-steel mesh filter minimizes the effects of dust and dirt on the sensor, while allowing air exchange around the sensor element and reducing the chance that condensation remains inside the filter cap. A small PTFE membrane filter is bonded to the surface of the element, which prevents any finer dust or mold from directly influencing the measurement.

The sensor housing is designed to withstand permanent exposure to all weather. It fits into a range of radiation shields, including compact shields such as the RAD06 6-Plate Solar Radiation Shield.

For improved reliability, the sensor is factory fitted with a fixed length of cable, and the sensor body is then potted to completely seal the electronics and cable joint. A range of cable lengths is availabl
