Honeywell's HumidIcon™ Digital humidity/temperature sensors are digital output-type relative humidity (RH) and temperature sensor combined in the same package. These devices offer several competitive advantages.
Many competitors simply specify the "accuracy" of their device; however, the specification may exclude hysteresis and temperature effects, and may be calculated over a very narrow range, at only one point in the range, or at the absolute best accuracy level. It is then up to the customer to calibrate the device to make sure it has the accuracy needed for the life of the application.
