Our dew sensor

The B+B condensation sensor SHS is a resistive humidity sensor with miniaturized dimensions. It detects incipient condensation quickly and reliably. Due to its compact design, it can be used in almost any application.

Unwanted dew formation or condensation effects on cooling systems, pipelines and technical equipment can cause considerable damage if not reacted to in time. The SHS series of resistive dew sensors was developed specifically for the early detection of impending condensation hazards or of condensation that has already formed. The dew sensor is mounted on the object. Due to the close toleranced impedance characteristic of the SHS-A4L, an exactly defined switching point close to the dew point is possible without adjustment of the circuit.

Typical applications are moisture protection in switch cabinets and electrical systems, condensate detection on exterior walls, ventilation control in sanitary rooms, building control systems, cooling ceiling switches, refrigerated trucks, air conditioning systems, leakage monitors for watertight enclosures, shop windows, damp room equipment, submersible pumps, wet vacuums, lasers, cameras beamers and any brown goods.
