The Hygrocontrol Type 83 RH and Temperature Transmitter uses a capacitance type sensing element with polymer dielectric medium. The temperature sensor is a Pt-1000 Ohm RTD. Microprocessor control allows for multipoint calibration. A maximum accuracy of 1.5 %RH is achieved with 8 points. Built in special temperature compensation is to correct humidity values from deviations arising from temperature effects on the sensor and the electronics.

The Type 83 is constructed for critical relative humidity and temperature measurements in cases without hazardous conditions. The exchangeable probes with built-in memory of the calibration can be replaced in seconds and allow minimal maintenance. Housing made of aluminum and probe tubes made of PP, PTFE and stainless steel are available in different lengths and diameters. Analog current calibration over RS 232 3V. There are several different Sensor filters available.

Applications for the Type 83 include:

  • Maturation, packaging, storage and transportation of food and stimulants
  • Material conditioning in the manufacture of pharmaceutical products
  • Drying processes in the manufacturing and processing ceramic products
  • Process monitoring in process plants in the chemical industry
  • Climate control of clean rooms, paint and incineration plants in the automotive industry, process control of climatic tests and environmental simulation chambers
  • Monitoring of sterilizing equipment in medical
