Wiring with the Loop Power Converter
To use the loop power converter module with HMP60 or HMP110,
make sure that:
- The probe is in the analog output mode
- The desired quantity must be on channel 1
- Channel 1 is scaled to 0 ... 2.5 V
When using the loop power converter module, power the module with
8 ... 28 VDC. The operating voltage for the probe (5 VDC) is delivered
by the module.
For more information, see the Loop Power Converter Quick Reference
Guide.

Figure 12
Wiring with the Loop Power Converter Module
22 __________________________________________________________________ M211060EN-A
Chapter 3 _______________________________________________________________ Installation
Power Supply Requirements
The operating voltage for the HMP60 and HMP110 probes must be in the
following range:
- 5 ... 28 VDC when using the 0 ... 1 V, 0 ... 2.5 V or RS-485 output
- 8 ... 28 VDC when using the 0 ... 5 V or 1 ... 5 V output
Current consumption is 1 mA on average, which makes the probes well
suited for running on battery power. The maximum peak consumption is
5 mA.
Recommendations
- Continuous use over high operating voltage may cause heating.
To conserve power and minimize the warming of the probe, use the
lowest operating voltage in the allowed range.
- Using low impedance loads on the signal outputs increase the current
consuption by up to 0.5 mA. High impedance loads are recommended
to minimize warming of the probe.
- Frequent interrogation of the probe using the RS485 interface will also
increase current consumption from the average value. More frequent
interrogation than once per second is not recommended.

Chapter 4 ________________________________________________________________ Operation
CHAPTER 4
OPERATION
This chapter contains information that is needed to operate HMP60 and
HMP110.
Getting Started
When the probe has been connected to a power supply, there is a short
start-up delay before the measurement data is available through the
selected output(s) - analog or RS-485. The delay depends on the
operating voltage that is supplied to the probe:
- Operating voltage 5 ... 14 V: one second start-up delay
- Operating voltage 14 ... 28 V: four second start-up delay
Serial Line Communication
HMP60 and HMP110 support two-wire RS-485 communication. The
RS-485 interface is non-isolated and offers a maximum communications
rate of 57600 bits/s.
There is no internal termination for the RS-485 on the probe. Use of
termination resistors is not recommended. If the resistors are used, the
possible increase in current consumption should be taken into account.
Connecting to the Serial Interface
The connection to the serial interface is via the 4-pin connector on the
probe; see connector pinout on page 20.
For temporary use of the serial interface (for example, calibration), you
can use the optional USB cable (Vaisala order code: 219690). Before you
can use the USB cable, you must install the provided USB driver on your
PC, see Installing the Driver for the USB Cable on page 26.
VAISALA _______________________________________________________________________ 25
User's Guide ______________________________________________________________________
NOTE
The Vaisala USB cable is not designed for permanent installation.
When using the USB cable, no separate power unit is needed. The probe
is powered through the USB port.
For permanent interfacing to a host system, use a shielded cable with a
threaded connector. See list of available cables in section Options and
Accessories on page 60.
You can change the serial settings and operate in RUN, STOP and POLL
modes. The probe does not echo typed characters back to the terminal
screen. To see the commands you type, you need to enable the "local
echo" -setting in your terminal program.
A new command cannot be received while the probe is sending data out.
Wait until the instrument has completed its response before entering the
next command.

After power-up the probe (in STOP-mode) outputs the software version
and the command prompt.
In RUN mode a measurement output starts immediately after power-up.
In POLL mode, the probe does not output anything after power-up, see
section Set Serial Line Settings on page 35.

Chapter 4 ________________________________________________________________ Operation
Installing the Driver for the USB Cable
Before taking the USB cable into use, you must install the provided USB
driver on your PC. When installing the driver, you must acknowledge
any security prompts that may appear. The driver is compatible with
Windows 2000, Windows XP, and Windows Vista.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Check that the USB cable is not connected. Disconnect the cable if
you have already connected it.
Insert the media that came with the cable, or download the driver
from www.vaisala.com.
Execute the USB driver installation program (setup.exe), and
accept the installation defaults. The installation of the driver may
take several minutes.
After the driver has been installed, connect the USB cable to a USB
port on your PC. Windows will detect the new device, and use the
driver automatically.
The installation has reserved a COM port for the cable. Verify the
port number, and the status of the cable, using the Vaisala USB
Instrument Finder program that has been installed in the
Windows Start menu. The reserved ports are also visible in the
Ports section of the Windows Device Manager.
Remember to use the correct port in the settings of your terminal
program. Windows will recognize each individual cable as a different
device, and reserve a new COM port.
There is no reason to uninstall the driver for normal use. However, if you
wish to remove the driver files and all Vaisala USB cable devices, you
can do so by uninstalling the entry for Vaisala USB Instrument Driver
from the Add or Remove Programs (Programs and Features in
Windows Vista) in the Windows Control Panel.

Calibration Commands
Calibrate Humidity Measurement
Use the CRH command to perform a one-point or two-point correction to
the capacitance measurement of the probe. This command changes the
offset and/or gain of the measurement, depending on the calibration and
reference:
- one-point calibration with a single < 50 %RH reference will adjust
the offset of the capacitance measurement
- one-point calibration with a single > 50 %RH reference will adjust the
gain of the capacitance measurement
- two-point calibration will adjust both offset and gain. The first point
requires a < 50 %RH humidity reference, the second point must be
> 50 %RH. There must also be at least 30 percentage point difference
between the references.
CRH [reference]<cr>
When performing a one-point calibration, you need to place the probe in
the reference humidity and wait for 20 – 40 minutes for the humidity to
stabilize. To apply the adjustment, enter the CRH command with the
reference %RH as a parameter.
VAISALA _______________________________________________________________________ 39
User's Guide ______________________________________________________________________
Example: one-point calibration (LiCl reference, 11 %RH):
crh 11
OK
Example: one-point calibration with NaCl reference (75 %RH):
crh 75
OK
Giving the command without parameters starts the two-point calibration.
Remember to allow the humidity to stabilize for 20 - 40 minutes after
changing the reference.
Example: two-point calibration with LiCl (11 %RH) and NaCL (75
%RH) references:
crh
RH : 11.2684 1. ref ? 11
Press any key when ready ...
RH : 75.0612 2. ref ? 75
OK
Clear Adjustment of RH Measurement
Use the CRHCLR command to clear the adjustment of RH measurement
that has been done using the CRH command.
CRHCLR<cr>
Example:
crhclr
OK
Calibrate Temperature Measurement
Use the CT command to perform a one-point or two-point temperature
(T) calibration. One-point calibration adjusts the offset for the
measurement, two-point calibration adjusts offset and gain.
CT [reference]<cr>
When performing a one-point calibration, you need to place the probe in
a single temperature reference and wait for 20 – 40 minutes for the
temperature to stabilize. To apply the adjustment, enter the CT command
with the reference temperature as a parameter.
40 __________________________________________________________________ M211060EN-A
Chapter 4 ________________________________________________________________ Operation
Example: one-point calibration
ct 23.5
OK
Giving the command without parameters starts the two-point calibration.
Remember to allow the temperature to stabilize for 20 - 40 minutes after
changing the reference. The first reference point must be smaller than the
second point, and the difference between the reference points must be
more than 30 ºC. To update the measured value while the command is
running, press enter without inputting a value.

CHAPTER 5
MAINTENANCE
This chapter provides information that is needed in basic maintenance of
HMP60 and HMP110.
Periodic Maintenance
The measurement accuracy of the HMP60 and HMP110 should be
calibrated yearly. When calibration indicates that accuracy is not within
specification:
- HMP60: change the INTERCAP® Sensor.
- HMP110: adjust the measurement, or have a Vaisala Service Center
adjust it for you.
Light cleaning and filter replacement should be done only when
necessary.
Cleaning
The probe body can be wiped clean with a soft, linf-free cloth moistened
with mild detergent. Do not use solvents or compressed air.
Note that wiping the membrane filter or stainless steel sintered filter may
block its pores and/or deposit residue on the filter. If the filter is heavily
contaminated, replace it.
VAISALA _______________________________________________________________________ 45
User's Guide ______________________________________________________________________
Changing the Filter
The filter on the probe should be replaced when it is damaged or dirty.
1.
2.
Turn the filter counter-clockwise to loosen it.
Remove the filter from the probe. Be careful not to touch the
sensors with the filter. Without the filter in place, the sensors are
easily damaged – handle the probe carefully.
3.
Install a new filter on the probe, and tighten it so it is finger-tight.
Make sure the filter sits straight and meets the threads properly.
New filters can be ordered from Vaisala. For available filters, see section
Filter Options on page 15. The order codes of the filters are listed in
section Options and Accessories on page 60.
Calibration Procedure
To calibrate your probe, you need a known stable humidity or
temperature reference, and a way to read the output of the probe (analog
or serial). As a humidity reference you can use, for example, the Vaisala
Humidity Calibrator HMK15.
Refer to chapter Technical Data on page 57 for accuracy specifications of
the probes.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
Connect the power/signal cable to the probe, but do not power it up
yet.
Place the probe in the reference environment. For example, you can
use a NaCl salt chamber (75 %RH) as the humidity reference.
Wait for 20 – 40 minutes for the reading to stabilize.
Power up the probe and wait for one minute.
Check the measurement reading, and compare it with the reading
that the reference should produce.

To perform a one-point adjustment to the capacitance measurement of
the HMP110 you need:
- The Vaisala USB cable (Vaisala order code: 219690)
- PC with a terminal application.
- One humidity reference. One-point calibration with a single
< 50 %RH reference will adjust the offset of the measurement. Onepoint calibration with a single > 50 %RH reference will adjust the gain
of the measurement
The procedure below uses the HMK15 Humidity Calibrator. LiCl salt
(11 %RH) is used as the reference point.
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
Connect the USB cable to the PC, but do not connect it to the probe
yet.
Insert the probe in the LiCl salt chamber of the humidity calibrator
(11 %RH).
Start a terminal application and set the correct connection settings.
The default serial settings are 19200 8 N 1. Remember to check
which COM port the USB cable is using.
Wait for 20 – 40 minutes for the humidity to stabilize.
Start the terminal session and connect the USB cable to the probe.
If your probe is in the analog output mode, you need to press Enter
a few times to start it in RS-485 mode.
Verify that the connection works by giving the ? command:

appears to be wrong.
The probe is not responding
to any serial commands.
The following error is active:
Likely causes and solutions
- Sensor(s) damaged or missing. Open the filter
and check.
- Calibration is not done. Calibrate the probe
(HMP110) or change the sensor (HMP60).
- Check the supply voltage of the probe.
- Check the output mode of the probe using serial
line.
- Check for condensation on the probe and
sensor.
- Use the L command to check the currently
applied calibration correction.
- Calibrate and adjust the probe (HMP110).
- Calibrate the probe and change the sensor if
necessary(HMP60).
- Disconnect the USB cable from the probe and
retry. If your probe is in the analog output mode,
press ENTER a few times immediately after
connecting the USB cable.
- Try the ?? command in case the probe is in
POLL state, open the line using OPEN
command if necessary.
- Check your serial line settings and cable
connections.
- Operating voltage out of range. Correct voltage
and reset probe.
- Voltage error
