IMPROVING HUMIDITY MEASUREMENTS IN METEOROLOGY

A product with a unique advantage Air humidity and temperature play an important role in meteorology. Highly accurate measurements of these climate parameters form the basis of accurate forecasts and meaningful records. The E+E Elektronik Model EE33 series humidity and temperature sensor is the only one on the market with a double-heated probe. Both the sensor tube and the sensor element are heated. An application note, free for download from their website, tells the rest of the story. You can download it be clicking here. If that does not work, as sometimes happens when organizations “refine” their websites, we have … Continue reading

Measuring Moisture in Wood

Methods of Moisture Content Measurement in the Lumber and Furniture Industries* by: Phil Mitchell, Assistant Professor and Wood Products Extension Specialist, North Carolina State University Source:  http://www.ces.ncsu.edu/nreos/wood/wpn/methods_moisture.htm The moisture content of wood is a basic property that can impact subsequent machining, gluing, finishing, and product performance. It is the job of wood product producers to establish a moisture content in the wood that will be similar to what the wood will experience in service. To accomplish that, manufacturers must develop a standard procedure that will measure wood moisture content consistently and accurately. This brief note discusses methods of moisture content … Continue reading

TI Temperature Measurement Videos

TI, or Texas Instruments, is one of the world’s most prolific and largest makers of temperature sensors. They make all kinds but their sensors are mostly in the form of Integrated Circuit semiconductors. TI also does an exceptional job in educating users how their devices work and how they can be interfaced and incorporated in measurement systems. Especially useful are the videos showing how some of their other integrated circuit modules can be used with external temperature sensors, like Thermocouples, RTDs and Thermistors. Here’s an example of an interesting one: Contactless Temperature Measurement Made Simple – TMP006 by Texas Instruments … Continue reading
