With its small dimension and high sensitivity, the IST AG K5-W capacitive RH humidity sensor was developed for applications where an accurate measurement in low humidity ranges is required. The sensor is characterized by the outstanding stability in low humidity, very low drift and a high chemical resistance. With its excellent sensor characteristics, the K5-W is the optimal choice for low humidity environments. The humidity sensor is capable of measuring 0 % RH to 100 % RH (maximal dew point +85 °C) with a capacitance of 200 pF ±50 pF (at 30 % RH and +23 °C) and operates within a temperature range of -40 °C to +150 °C.
The IST AG K5-W humidity sensor is available with CuP-SIL wire post-plated with Sn as standard configuration.
