Sensor module gives early warning on condensation danger

April 20, 2017 // By Julien Happich
The compact EE046 from E+E Elektronik monitors reliably the condensation danger on chilled beams and other critical cold spots, in air conditioning systems or switching cabinets.

It can be installed on plane surfaces and on pipes up to 50mm in diameter. To prevent condensation, the switch output can trigger actuators like valves or heaters. The EE046 measures accurately the relative humidity at the surface temperature. Thanks to the special E+E proprietary coating, the humidity sensor is optimally protected against contamination. This improves the lifetime and long-term stability of the EE046 in dirty, dusty environments. Another advantage of the condensation monitor is the fast response time to humidity or surface temperature change.  The potential-free relay (max. 24 V AC/DC, 1 A) switches when the relative humidity at the surface reaches 90% RH, or in case of a supply failure such as a broken cable. A LED indicates the status of the EE046: normal operation, risk of condensation or fault/failure.
