Why to measure temperature and relative humidity?
Temperature and relative humidity have a direct impact on the sense of well-being and comfort of the residents. Dry air leads to dry skin and itchy eyes. Too high relative humidity degrees will result in condensation forming on windows, walls and ceilings that are colder than the air temperature and potentially damaging building materials and causing odours in poorly ventilated spaces.
How does it work?
This sensor measures temperature, relative humidity and ambient light. Based on these measurements, the dew point temperature is calculated. It has three outputs. Each of them transmits one of the measured values. E.g. by default, output 1 will transmit 0 V at 0 °C and 10 V at 50 °C. Each output value varies proportionally in function of the measured temperature or relative humidity. By default, the measured temperature is available via output 1 and the relative humidity via output 2. Output 3 is deactivated by default, but can also transmit temperature or relative humidity.
This HVAC transmitter offers a clear, visual indication of the temperature via the green, yellow and red LED. The green LED indicates that temperature is within range. When the temperature enters the alert range, the yellow LED lights up. Red means: too hot or too cold. It is also possible to visualise relative humidity via the LEDs. The measured temperature and relative humidity are available via the analogue outputs and via Modbus RTU. The dew point and ambient light level are available via Modbus RTU.
This sensor offers you the choice to connect it via the cage clamp terminal blocks or via the RJ45 connector. Supply voltage and Modbus RTU communication can be connected via the RJ45 connector. Via the terminal blocks it is possible to connect the outputs, Modbus RTU communication and the supply voltage. Never connect the supply voltage via the RJ45 connector and the terminal blocks simultaneously! The supply voltage is 24 VDC. The ground terminals of the power supply (V-) and output (GND) are internally not connected. This means that a 4-wire cable is required to connect this sensor. Most 24 VDC power supplies offer protection against short circuit, overload and overvoltage. A 24 VDC supply voltage increases the safety and reliability of your installation.
Easy to use!
This sensor doesn't require any configuration. Once installed, it is ready to use. The default settings will do for most applications. If necessary, the settings can be adjusted via Modbus RTU. For example, a different output type can be selected to make it compatible with other devices: 0-10 VDC / 0-20 mA / 0-100 % PWM / Modbus RTU. Also the light intensity of the LEDs for status indication is adjustable. The Modbus register map provides a complete overview of all adjustable settings.
This HVAC transmitter is manufactured in Europe. Each sensor is calibrated and tested in our factory. We use sensor elements and components of high quality. This ensures the long-term stability and accuracy of this HVAC transmitter. The enclosure offers an IP30 protection against ingress of dust and moisture. It can be mounted on a wall indoors. To ensure optimal performance, it should be protected from direct sunlight.
