EWS-RH
Relative Humidity/Temperature Transmitter
General Description
The OMEGA® Model EWS-RH is a combination dual output,
relative humidity/temperature transmitter. A thin film temperature
compensated, polymer capacitor senses relative humidity while
a solid state temperature sensor measures ambient temperature.
Independent user selectable 4-20 mA or 1-5 Vdc outputs are provided
for both measured parameters via a terminal strip connection.
Unpacking
Remove the packing list and verify that you have received all your
equipment. If you have any questions about the shipment, please call
our Customer Service Department at
1-800-622-2378 or 203-359-1660. On the web you can find us at:
www.omega.com
e-mail: cservice@omega.com
When you receive the shipment, inspect the container and
equipment for any signs of damage. Note any evidence of rough
handling in transit. Immediately report any damage to the shipping
agent.
NOTE
The carrier will not honor any damage claims unless all
shipping material is saved for inspection. After examining
and removing contents, save packing material and carton
in the event reshipment is necessary.
The following items are supplied in the box with your transmitter.

Theory of Operation
A 4-20 mA loop is a series loop in which a transmitter will vary
the current flow depending on the input to the transmitter. In the
EWS-RH the amount of current allowed to flow in the loop will
vary depending on the relative humidity or temperature being
measured by the sensor. Some advantages of a current output over
a voltage output is that the signal measured is less susceptible to
electrical noise interference and the loop can support more than one
measuring instrument as long as the maximum loop resistance is not
exceeded.
A typical application utilizing a current loop will normally consist of
a power supply, the transmitter and a meter, recorder or controller
to measure the current flow. The loop resistance in the sum of the
measuring instruments and wire used. The maximum allowable loop
resistance for the EWS-RH to function properly is found by using the
following formula:
Rmax = (power supply voltage - 8 volts)/.02 amps
For applications that require a voltage output signal the EWS-RH has
a built-in 250 Ohm shunt resistor that will convert the transmitters
output to a 1-5 Vdc signal when wired correctly. See “Transmitter
Wiring Examples” in this manual.

NOTE
These units are not designed, nor recommended for
medical, Explosive Environment or outdoor applications.
Mounting
OMEGA’s EWS Series of sensors and transmitters are designed
for wall mounting in locations that are free from dirt, grease, food
particles and condensing moisture such as manufacturing clean
rooms, computer rooms and laboratory type environments. Plastic
wall anchors and mounting screws are included for mounting
to standard wallboard. A conduit box mounting bracket/wall
plate adapter kit is also available as an option that will allow the
EWSMountingDrawing.eps
transmitter to be mounted to a standard electrical conduit box.

Calibration
Your transmitter has been factory calibrated to meet or exceed
the specifications outlined in this manual. To maintain original
specifications it is generally recommended that your transmitter be
re-calibrated on an annual basis depending on operating conditions.
Relative Humidity Calibration Procedure
Recommended equipment:
Humidity Generator/Calibrator Kit, OMEGA® Model No.: RHCL-KIT
Handheld Digital Multimeter, OMEGA® Model No.: HHM29
NOTE
Do not make adjustments to potentiometer “P3”, this is
a factory setting and is not field adjustable. If “P3” is
disturbed the transmitter will need to be returned to the
factory for service.
1. Remove enclosure cover
2. Connect transmitter as shown in figure below.
3. Apply power to transmitter and allow to warm up for 15 min.
WSRelHumidityCalib.eps
4. Place sensor in a 20% RH environment
and allow to stabilize for 20 min.
5. Adjust potentiometer “P1” for a output reading of 7.2 mA
6. Place sensor in a 80% RH environment and allow to stabilize for 20 min.
7. Adjust potentiometer “P2” for an output reading of 16.8 mA
8. Repeat steps 4, 5, 6, 7 as necessary until proper readings are maintained.
9. Calibration complete.

7. Without touching the unit with your hand, adjust potentiometer “P4”
for a current output of the transmitter that matches the temperature
measured by the reference probe. Note: if you hold the unit with
your hand, the unit will sense heat from your hand and cause a bad
calibration.
