Sometimes, after rains, the air feels moist. The water seems to have suspended in the air. However, in certain AC’s you click some buttons and the atmosphere brightens up. How and why does it all happen? Moisture forms up in the air, resulting in humidity. However, the humidity sensor in your AC picks it up and cleans it up for you. Isn’t that wonderful? Let’s take a look at how it does that.
A humidity sensor (or hygrometer) senses, measures and reports both moisture and air temperature. The ratio of moisture in the air to the highest amount of moisture at a particular air temperature is called relative humidity. Relative humidity becomes an important factor when looking for comfort.
Humidity sensors work by detecting changes that alter electrical currents or temperature in the air.
There are three basic types of humidity sensors:
Applications of humidity sensors are far and wide
The applications of humidity sensor range far and wide. People with illnesses affected by humidity, monitoring and preventive measure in homes employ humidity sensors. A humidity sensor is also found as part of home heating, ventilating and air conditioning systems (HVAC systems). These are also used in offices, cars, humidors, museums, industrial spaces and greenhouses and are also used in meteorology stations to report and predict the weather.
Humidity plays a very important role in the human body as well as in the environment. This makes it very important to measure the humidity. The Humidity sensor projects for electronics engineering contributes its own share in the medical electronics projects as well as agricultural projects
Below is the list of Humidity sensor project from Microtronics Technologies. These projects are implemented using the Humidity sensor.
