Relative Humidity, Duct Thermistor
NSA-RH-DUCT

Part Numbers

NSA-HH/RH2-CP-D-C
NSA-HH/RH3-CP-D-C

The Carrier Relative Humidity with Thermistor Duct Series utilizes a thermoset polymer capacitive sensing element with a factory fitted hydrophobic filter to improve its moisture resistance. The sensing elements multilayer construction also provides excellent resistance in applications where dust, dirt, oils and common environmental chemicals are found. The RH duct sensors include on board DIP switches which allow the user to select the desired output signal and can be powered by AC or DC power sources.

Applications

Humidification, Dehumidification, Supply / Discharge / Return Air, Economizers, Clean Rooms, Data Centers, Process Control, Schools, Hospitals, Office Buildings
