Vaisala released the HMP9, a compact and smart humidity and temperature probe with high response time. It is suitable for industrial applications with rapidly changing environments, where fast thermal response, measurement performance and long-term stability are essential. Designed in a compact package, it weights a few grams and the probe head is 5 mm of diameter, which offers faster response time and capabilities of installation in tight spaces.
Optimized for dryers, air handling units or test chambers, this probe can also help in locations with temperatures under 120°C, that don’t involve high pressure, where temperature measurement and accurate humidity are critical factors. The HMP9 also grants measurements of other calculated humidity parameters, such as dew point temperature, wet-bulb temperature, absolute humidity, mixing ratio, water concentration, water vapor pressure and enthalpy. It comprises a Humicap sensor that delivers industry-standard humidity measurement performance. The sensor can remove harmful chemicals by heating itself thanks to a chemical purge option.
