Polymers add to sensor durability.
New from Vaisala is their DMT152 dewpoint measurement sensor/transmitter with polymer technologies that enable its use down to temperatures of-112 degrees Fahrenheit. The new sensor combines the company's thin-film polymer DRYCAP[R] sensor with an expanded measurement range in withstanding condensation, harsh environmental conditions and recovering from liquid water exposure. The unit also uses a patented auto calibration feature for long-term measurement accuracy, product durability and a better wet-to-dry response time. Each DRYCAP[R] DMT152 comes with a NIST traceable calibration certificate and can be delivered in less than one week.
Why Would I Specify:
* Lower maintenance costs with a 2-year calibration interval.
* Durable enough for exposure to harsh conditions, including dirt, debris and water.
* A simple and versatile output signal integrates with most control systems.
