INTRODUCTION
1.1
HMI41 with calibration option
The HMI41 can be used as a field calibrator for various Vaisala humidity
transmitters. There are three different calibration cables available:
• 19116ZZ
for the calibration of Vaisala’s HMD/W 60/70 and
HMP140 series analogue transmitters
• 19164ZZ
for the calibration of HMP230 series digital transmitters
• 19165ZZ
for the calibration of the HMD/W 20/30 and
HMP130 series analogue transmitters
In this manual, only the calibration of HMD/W 20/30 and HMP130 series
analogue transmitters is dealt with. For other calibration options, please refer
to corresponding manuals.
Calibration is quick and easy to perform. In calibration, the HMI41 measures
relative humidity with the reference probe and receives the RH information
from the transmitter. These two values are then compared on the HMI41
display and the transmitter is adjusted with calibration potentiometers inside
the transmitter.
1.2
Selecting the HMI41 calibrator function
The desired calibrator function is selected in the HMI41 setup menu. To enter
the setup mode, first press the ON/OFF button and the following appears:

Then release the ON/OFF button and within 1...2 seconds press both ENTER
and MODE buttons until the following text appears on the display:
After a few seconds, the text changes automatically to show the following:

If the basic settings of the HMI41 (display units, automatic power off
function, display quantities and pressure) have to be changed, please refer to
the HMI41 Operating Manual. Otherwise, press ENTER repeatedly until the
following text appears:
set
The number on the first line of the display corresponds to the following
HMI41 functions:
1 = HMI41 as a humidity and temperature indicator
2 = HMI41 as a calibrator for HMD/W 60/70 and HMP140 series analogue
transmitters
3 = HMI41 as a calibrator for HMP230 series digital transmitters
4 = HMI41 as a calibrator for the HMD/W20/30 and HMP130 series
analogue transmitters
To calibrate the HMD/W 20/30 or HMP130 series transmitters, select number
4 with buttons ▲ (number up) and ▼ (number down) and then turn the HMI41
off. When the HMI41 is turned on again, it will automatically assume the
calibrator function for the HMD/W 20/30 and HMP130 series transmitters. If
you wish to calibrate transmitters of some other type or use the HMI41 as an
indicator, this selection has to be made accordingly; refer to corresponding
manuals for further details.

CALIBRATION
For a successful calibration, it is essential that the probe of the HMI41 and
that of the transmitter are at the same temperature, and that the reference
probe has been previously calibrated. Always allow enough time for the
readings to stabilize. Note that the stabilization time depends on the ambient
conditions and may vary from 10 minutes to a couple of hours.
2.1
Getting started
After having selected the desired function (Chapter 1.2), turn the HMI41 off
and connect the calibration cable to the EXT connector at the bottom of the
HMI41 (Figure 2.1). Connect the other end of the cable to the appropriate
connector in the transmitter (Figures 2.2 - 2.4).

Calibration
After having connected the cable, turn the HMI41 on with the ON/OFF button
and wait until a text similar to the following appears on the display:
RH
%
Numbers on the first line indicate the RH measured by the transmitter, and
numbers on the second line indicate the RH measured by the HMI41 reference
probe. If you wish, you can now adjust the transmitter:
• Wait until the readings have stabilized and adjust the calibration
potentiometers (Figures 2.2 - 2.4) until the readings on the first and
the second line are the same. It is recommended to use the offset
potentiometer if the RH is <65 %RH and the gain potentiometer if the
RH is >65 %RH.

• After having completed the calibration, press ON/OFF and disconnect
the cable.
If you prefer, you can change the HMI41 display to show the difference in the
readings and then adjust the transmitter. To do this, press MODE when both
readings are on the display and a text similar to the following is displayed:
RH
%
Numbers on the first line indicate how much the RH measured by transmitter
differs from that of the reference probe. Numbers on the second line indicate
the RH measured by the reference probe. If you wish, you can now calibrate
the transmitter (by pressing MODE again the measured values appear on the
display):
• Wait until the readings have stabilized and adjust the calibration
potentiometers (Figures 2.2 - 2.4) until the numbers on the first line
are as close to zero as possible. It is recommended to use the offset
potentiometer if the RH is <65 %RH and the gain potentiometer if the
RH is >65 %RH.
• After having completed the calibration, press ON/OFF and disconnect
the cable.
GUARANTEE
Vaisala issues a guarantee for the material and workmanship of this product
under normal operating conditions for one (1) year from the date of delivery.
Exceptional operating conditions, damage due to careless handling and misapplication will void the guarantee.

APPENDIX 1: QUICK REFERENCE TO CALIBRATION
It is recommended that this quick reference guide is used only as a checking
list for those who already know how to operate the HMI41 as a calibrator. For
those who take it into use for the first time, the Operating Manual gives useful
information that is not included in this quick reference guide.
