Digital Humidity Sensors

HYT 221 Splash-Proof Digital Humidity Element

HYT 221 is a digital humidity element in a round stainless steel casing which can be easily fitted into housing openings and can be sealed against the wall with the use of an O-ring. In combination with the waterproof membrane filter, it results in an assembly that is splash waterproof and enables a sealed housing construction while providing high dynamic responsiveness.
