Vaisala, a specialist in environmental and industrial measurements, has introduced a set of interchangeable smart probes for humidity measurements in demanding environments. The new probes are convenient to use either as independent digital transmitters or connected with the Vaisala Indigo host devices.
The new Vaisala Humicap humidity and temperature probes HMP4, HMP5, HMP7 and HMP8, and the Vaisala temperature probe TMP1, are all part of Vaisala’s Indigo product family and will complement the existing GMP250 series and the HPP272.
The probes share several common key features, the most dominant being interchangeability, which minimizes the downtime associated with maintenance. This, together with the probes’ accuracy, helps to reduce costs and resource needs. The probes’ interchangeable nature makes calibration and replacement more convenient.
The newly launched probes also share functionalities such as chemical purge and sensor heating. The HMP7 features warmed probe technology, which enables accurate measurements to be taken in highly condensing environments.
All the HMP probes are equipped with the new Vaisala Humicap R2 composite sensor, which boasts unparalleled corrosion resistance, particularly in acidic environments. All of the new probes are also resistant to dust and most chemicals, and their smooth surface is easy to clean. The new Indigo family members are compatible with the free Vaisala Insight PC software, which allows convenient setup, diagnostics and field calibration.
