Decoding Humidity Accuracy

Considering humidity accuracy measurements is necessary when selecting a relative humidity transmitter. Accuracy, by definition, is "the degree to which the result of a measurement, calculation, or specification conforms to the correct value or standard" (Oxford English Dictionary). When comparing accuracy measurements of different relative humidity sensors, understanding the factors included in said measurements is crucial. An accuracy measurement should consist of non-linearity, hysteresis, repeatability, and calibration uncertainty. These factors can be defined as:

What are the Benefits of Field Replaceable Tips?

When selecting a humidity sensor, we recommend choosing one with a field replaceable tip. Why are we recommending this? A field replaceable tip is easy to replace and allows the end-user to swap the sensor on-site without having to calibrate the unit or remove it from its mount. We recommend sensors with field replaceable tips for the following reasons:
