Capacitive Type Humidity SMD Sensor with Accurate Detection

Alps Electric Europe offers with the HSHCA a high-quality capacitive type humidity sensor for use in digital cameras, mobile phones, PCs, and notebooks, in health care applications, home appliances, robots and industrial machines.

The surface-mountable sensor is remarkable for its small dimensions of 2.5mm x 2.2mm x 1.0mm (W x D x H). It precisely detects relative humidity in the range of 0 to 100 percent while delivering a high measuring accuracy of ± 5%. The humidity sensor is rated for supply voltages from 2.2V to 3.6V. Its operating temperature ranges from –20°C to +85°C.

Through the use of advanced thin-film process, micro fabrication and packaging technologies, ALPS is able to manufacture SMD sensors such as the HSHCA. The new humidity sensor complies with the RoHS (Restriction on Hazardous Substances) directive. It is suitable for reflow soldering and is available in minimum packaing units of 45.000 pieces. For automatic mounting, it is packaged on embossed tape with a width of 8mm.
