A. GENERAL DESCRIPTION
The stainless steel probe provides relative humidity as well as
temperature out puts. A thin film polymer capacitor senses relative
humidity, while temperature is monitored by a 1000 Ohm platinum
RTD. The sensors are protected by a stainless steel filter cap easily
removed for cleaning. The probe is connected to an electronics
enclosure with a 40 inch (1m) Teflon cable. The enclosure contains
the calibration trimmers, signal and power connections via two
terminal blocks. The probe is available in two configurations, as a
2.5” (64 mm) probe with a wall mounting clip, and as an 8.5” (216
mm) probe with an adjustable duct flange.
B. UNPACKING
Verify that the following parts have been received.
1. Remove probe with cable and electronics enclosure.
2. Instruction manual.
3. Wall mounting clip [for 2.5” (64 mm) probe].
4. 2 piece duct flange, with o-ring, (3) screws, and a gasket.

C. THEORY OF OPERATION
A 4 to 20 milliamp loop is a series current loop in which a
transmitter will vary the current flow depending upon the parameter
being measured (Relative Humidity or Temperature). Advantages of
a current output over a voltage output is that is less susceptible to
noise interference and allows the connection of more than one meter
or recorder to the loop as long as the maximum resistance is not
exceeded.
The typical current loop will consist of a power supply, transmitter,
and a meter to measure the current flow. The loop resistance is the
sum of the impedance of the meter(s) and the lead wire. The
maximum allowable loop impedance of the probe is found by the
Formula:
Rmax = (power supply voltage-7 volts) /.02 amps
Example: when using a 24 VDC power supply:
Rmax= (24-7) /.02=850 ohms (for total wire length to and
from the transmitter).

If the meter or recorder being used accepts only voltage, convert the
current to voltage by installing a 250 ohm resistor across the input
terminals of the recorder to obtain a 1 to 5 volts input.

PROBE INSTALLATION
F. MOUNTING
A. DUCT MOUNTING
STEPS
1. Slide flange holder onto probe with countersink
hole facing front of probe as shown.
2. Position o-ring on probe at desired position (for depth into
duct).
3. Slide duct flange onto probe as shown.
4. Fasten with (3) 6/32 screws and tighten evenly until secure.
5. Position gasket between duct flange and duct wall and fasten
assembly to duct with (4) #6 sheet metal screws (not
included).
6. Loosening the 6/32 screws allows for repositioning or
removal of the probe without having to remove the duct
flange from the wall.
The duct wall requires a 11/16” (.684” or 17.5 mm) hole for
probe, with (4) mounting holes (for #6 sheet metal screws)
evenly spaced on a 2.0” (51 mm) circle. Use duct flange as
template.
B. WALL MOUNTING
1. Fasten metal clip to wall.
2. Snap probe into clip.

G. RH AND TEMPERATURE CALCULATIONS
1. Maximum current loop impedance for RH or temperature.
Rmax = (V supply – 7 volts) /.02 amps
2. RH current output (i = current output in milliamperes)
3. Temperature current output.
oC = (i-4) x 220/16) – 40 iC = (oC + 40) x (16/220) + 4
oF = (i-4) x (396/16) – 40 iF = (oF + 40) x (16/396) + 4
The upper limit of the humidity measurement range decreases based on
temperature. The humidity measurement limit decreases as follows:
2.20% per °C from 95 to 120°C (1.11% per °F from 203 to 248°F)
1.00% per °C from 120 to 140°C (0.56% per °F from 248 to 284°F)
0.50% per °C from 140 to 160°C (0.28% per °F from 284 to 320°F)
0.25% per °C from 160 to 180°C (0.14% per °F from 320 to 356°F)
For example, at 120°C the upper humidity limit decreases to about 45%
((120-95)(2.20%) = 55% decrease which is 45%), at 180°C it is reduced
to about 10%.
To calculate the RH accuracy, we’ll use the accuracy specs given in the
specifications section:
+/-2%RH at 25°C and -40° to 150°C at 0.05 % RH/°C.
To clarify lets take an example,
RH accuracy at 120°C,
=+/- (2% + (120-25)0.05%) = +/- (2% + 4.75%)
=+/-6.75%
So the accuracy at 120°C is +/- 6.75% and the upper humidity
measurement limit is 45% RH.

H. RH CALIBRATION
Refer to Section D for the location of trim pots A and B.
Note: The HX92-CAL Relative Humidity Calibration Kit is for
providing the “low” and “high” RH environments for this procedure.
The salt solutions in this kit are prepared according to ASTM
standard E104 -85 to provide 11.3% and 75.3% relative humidity
environments. The containers provided in the kit are designed to fit with
these instruments.
1. Turn the span (trim pot A) all the way up (clockwise).
2. Turn the zero (trim pot B) all the way down (counterclockwise).
3. Place the sensor in the low (11.3%) RH environment. Allow
at least one hour for stabilization or until the output stops
changing.
4. Verify the output is 4 +/-.02 mA. If it is not, return the unit
to Omega for evaluation and repair.
5. Adjust the zero (trim pot B) to the point where it just starts to
cause a change in the output.
6. Place the sensor in the high (75.3%) RH environment. Allow
at least one hour for stabilization or until the output stops
changing.
7. Adjust the span (trim pot A) so the output is equivalent to
the difference between low and high RH environments.
Example: 75.3%-11.3% = 64% which is equivalent to 14.24
mA.
8. Adjust the sensor in the low RH environment and allow at
least one hour for stabilization or until the output stops
changing. Verify the output is equivalent to the low RH
environment. Example: 11.3% is equivalent to 5.81 mA.

I. TEMPERATURE CALIBRATION
Temperature is factory calibrated only, and does not require
any further calibrations.
J. MAINTENANCE
If the probe is operated in a dusty environment, the
protective sensor filter, if clogged, may be removed for cleaning.
Unscrew filter and gently blow compressed air through screen.
If necessary, use a soft brush to remove lint from sensors.
If the sensors are subjected to 100% condensation, they must be
dried to obtain correct readings. There is no permanent
calibration shift, nor is recalibration necessary if 100%
condensation occurs.
The instrument should not be exposed to high
Concentrations of ammonia or alcohol vapors. However,
any environment that is breathable under normal HVAC
applications should not affect the sensors. To maintain original
specifications, it is generally recommended that the RH sensor
be recalibrated on an annual basis depending upon operating
conditions. The temperature sensor does not require calibration.
