Digital Humidity Sensor White Paper in Design News

 

digital humidity sensor with I2C outputRecently an article was published in Design News about digital humidity sensors offered by Servoflo.

Typical problems of traditional integrated sensor solutions include poor accuracy, unstable behavior around the measuring range limits and unsatisfactory chemical resistance against contaminants. Additional limitations are lack of dew formation resistance, inadequate long-term stability and failure during load spikes.

This article provides technical details about how these problems are solved with new digital humidity sensor technology. In depth details about design features and manufacturing techniques are discussed. Topics include ASIC functionality and design, construction, and what this means for the functionality of the humidity sensor.

Anyone who is considering designing in a digital humidity element should take a quick look at this topic. Please feel free to post a comment or question.

Some of our ESS chambers have the wet bulb system to measure humidity. How will the digital version be any better?

Hi Philip, 
Thanks for reading our blog. 
The HYT digital sensor can have an accuracy as low as 1.8% rH and also include a temperature output. Both humidity and temperature output are sent via I2C. I think it depends on your application requirements and needs. Feel free to drop us an email and we can discuss your application in detail.
