Relative Humidity Sensors
Relative humidity sensors are used in a variety of ways in industry, science and the home. Depending on the make and model, they can measure (with extreme accuracy) the relative humidity of soil, air and water.They are used in homes to monitor indoor humidity
The scientific breakthroughs in today’s technology have led to the invention of many types of humidity sensors. They can be small hand-held units or large cabinet sized installations.
These sensors are used by large agricultural industries in places such as greenhouses. The humidity must be kept at a constant rate in order to grow first-rate tomatoes or other crops, such as orchids. Agricultural Industries also use humidity sensors in grain and rice elevators, where a change in the relative humidity could ruin tons of precious food stuffs, or even lead to devastating explosions if not correctly stored.
The size of your project and the need for accuracy is the deciding line when choosing which relative humidity sensors to install on your property. Even for home use, the specifications can be demanding and so must be correct.
The scientific community uses these sensors in a huge array of installations. From the satellites and other vehicles we send into outer space, to the submarine vehicles exploring our ocean’s mysterious depths, the humidity sensor is a mandatory piece of equipment.
The military also has a great need to control humidity in installations around the world, to keep communications free and open in any type of climate. From the deserts of Iraq to the jungles of Asia, our armed forces depend on these sensors for humidity to keep machinery in top working condition.
You can see that our world is a better place with the advent of modern technology. Relative humidity sensors are an important part of our modern world.
