ChipCap®2 a Fully Calibrated Humidity and Temperature Sensor

main-ChipCap2

ChipCap® 2 offers the most advanced and cost effective humidity and temperature sensing solution for virtually any type of application. A capacitive polymer sensor chip and a CMOS integrated circuit with EEPROM are integrated into one embedded system in a reflow solderable SMD package.

Individually calibrated and tested, ChipCap® 2 performs at ±2% from 20% to 80% RH (±3% over entire humidity range), and is simple and ready to use without further calibration or temperature compensation.

ChipCap® 2 provides linear output signals in various interfaces to customer requirements:

  • I²C interface
  • PDM convertible to analog signal
  • Alarm function for preset control at min/max humidity
