Humidity Sensing Poses Four Distinct Challenges

As they are on the front line, humidity sensors are the most critical component in many environmental monitoring applications. This is made further evident by the need to precisely control our environment, one that could not be filled without sensors.


The engineers and designers at TE Connectivity are well versed in the ways and challenges of keeping humidity in harmonious balance within all applications. The company has narrowed down these challenges to four distinct scenarios. They are:

  1. Wide humidity and temperature ranges
  2. Applications require quick response time to maintain system performance.
  3. Applications that are exposed to environmental changes cannot have measurement compromised.
  4. Given the widespread usage of sensors, they must combine ease of use and the ability to be easily incorporated in an OEM’s SMD assembly line. 

In addition to revealing these challenges, the company explains them in depth while offering possible solutions. If you want to explore the challenges and solutions, you can access the full article, “Humidity Sensors — ‘Sensing’ and ‘Seeing’ What’s Critical in Our Environment
