Topic: How to protect a humidity sensor (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


Hi all

I have this http://www.sparkfun.com/products/8257 humidity sensor
I´m building a a small grow house for fun and I wonder how to protect the sensor
when the humidity gets so high that water drops are starting to form..



Weather instruments are often protected using a Stevenson shield or screen.


Now I learned something new :)

Maybe I can do this in micro size :)



Indoors a little plastic tent or lean-to or cone should work. Drops that form on the underside should stick as they run down, away to the side(s) before falling off. It works in solar stills, except there you collect the water into the middle.
