AbstractThe limited range of individual humidity sensors of the Dunmore type and their decreased speed of response at low temperatures tend to restrict their use as direct humidity measuring devices in some applications. Under certain circumstances a considerable increase in range and improvement in sensitivity may be possible with sensors of a lower humidity range by raising the temperature of the air being sampled. This paper discusses a method employing this principle that has specific application to the measurement of atmospheric humidity under low temperature winter conditions.
