Sensirion’s SHT85 best-in-class humidity sensor features a pin-type connector for easy integration and replacement. It builds on a highly accurate and long-term stable SHT3x sensor that is at the heart of Sensirion’s humidity and temperature platform. The unique package design allows for superior thermal coupling to the environment and decoupling from potential heat sources on the main board. The SHT85 features a PTFE membrane dedicated to protecting the sensor opening from liquids and dust according to IP67 without affecting the response time of the relative humidity (RH) signal. This feature allows the sensor to be used under harsh environmental conditions including sprayed water and high exposure to dust. Final accuracy testing on the product level ensures outstanding performance, making the SHT85 the ultimate choice for the most demanding applications.
