RS Components offers humidity and temperature sensor from Sensirion

Equipped with a membrane to protect against water and dust, Sensiron’s SHT85 temperature and humidity sensor is available from RS Components.

It has a pin-type connector for easy integration and replacement and offers thermal coupling to its surrounding environment as well as decoupling from potential heat sources on the main processing board.

It meets IP67 rating and can operate in harsh environments. The membrane protects the sensor opening from water and dust with the response time of the relative humidity (RH) signal unaffected.

The SHT85 offers a calibrated, linearised and temperature-compensated digital output. It also has final product level testing to deliver a typical accuracy of ±1.5 per cent (RH) and ±0.1 degree C, an I²C interface with communication speeds up to 1MHz, fast start-up and measurement time, low signal noise and an operating voltage from 2.15 up to 5.5V.

The Sensirion SHT85 humidity and temperature sensor is now shipping from RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
