Vernier's Relative Humidity Sensor contains an integrated circuit that can be used to monitor relative humidity
over the range 0 to 95% (± 5%). The sensor has applications in weather studies, monitoring greenhouses
or for determining days when static electrical discharges could be a problem.

The Relative Humidity Sensor can be used to
• Measure relative humidity in the air as part of a weather station
• Monitor indoor humidity for health reasons
• Optimize conditions in a greenhouse or terrarium
• Determine when static electrical discharges will be a problem
• Study transpiration rates of plants by monitoring relative humidity in sealed jars containing plants

The Relative Humidity Sensor is designed to be used with one of Vernier's interfaces and is not a standalone sensor.

• Range: 0% to 95%
• Power: 200µA @ 5V DC
•Response Time (time for a 90% change in reading):
     In still air: 60 minutes (typical)
     With vigorous air movement: 40 seconds (typical)
• Typical Resolution: 0.04% RH

Specifications IH-3602-L Integrated Circuit Humidity Sensor:
     (at 25°C and 5.0V DC)
• Total Accuracy (with saturated salt calibration): ±2% RH
• Total Accuracy (with standard calibration): ±10% RH
• Operating Temperature Range: 0 to 85°C
• Temperature Effect
     0%RH voltage: ±0.007% RH/°C (negligible)
     50%RH voltage: –0.11% RH/°C
     95%RH voltage: –0.22% RH/°C

    This product is used in teaching these Australian Curriculum codes:
    ACSSU189 - Earth and Space Sciences - Global Systems - Global systems, including the carbon cycle, rely on interactions involving the biosphere, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere
    ACSBL021 - Biodiversity and the interconnectedness of life - Describing biodiversity - In addition to biotic factors, abiotic factors including climate and substrate can be used to and classify environments
    ACSBL029 - Biodiversity and the interconnectedness of life - Ecosystem dynamics - Models of ecosystem interactions (for example, food webs, successional models) can be used to predict the impact of change and are based on interpretation of and extrapolation from sample data (for example, data derived from ecosystem surveying techniques
    ACSSU149 - Biological Sciences - Cells - Cells are the basic units of living things and have specialised structures and functions
    ACSSU150 - Biological Sciences - Organ Systems - Multi-cellular organisms contain systems of organs that carry out specialised functions that enable them to survive and reproduce
    ACSSU176 - Biological Sciences - Ecology - Ecosystems consist of communities of interdependent organisms and abiotic components of the environment; matter and energy flow through these systems
