A humidity and temperature module for climate and environmental chamber customers is being featured by Vaisala at Sensor + Test in Nuremberg (June 25-27). The HMM170 is optimised specifically for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) to bring reliable humidity measurement in very demanding environments with easy integration and compact size.
The module targets environmental chamber customers, which are climate chambers used for simulating different environmental conditions, stability chambers for packing and preservation testing of medicines, or incubators for growing cells and bacteria, for example.
The HMM170 is based on the latest Vaisala HUMICAP capacitive polymer sensor technology. The HUMICAP R2 sensor has excellent corrosion resistance and long-term stability.
A ±1% RH measurement accuracy makes the module suitable for very harsh and high-humidity environments with elevated temperatures, and for vacuum and pressurised conditions.
It features heated sensor and Vaisala’s patented warmed probe technology, which enables accurate measurements also in highly condensing environments.
Additionally, the sensor’s chemical purge functionality keeps it clean against chemical fumes.
