Benefits and Features

  • Well-suited for long-term, unattended applications
  • Accurate and rugged
  • Configured for use with the RAWS-P Fire Weather Station

The "-LQ" version of this product terminates in a military style connector (instead of pigtails) for use with a RAWS-P Permanent Remote Automated Weather Station. The length of the cable is specified at the time of order.

Detailed Description

For this version of the HMP45C, the cable terminates in a military style connector and has a user-specified lead length. The connector attaches to the RAWS-P enclosure, which mounts to a CM6/CM10 tripod, CM110-series tripod, or UT-series tower. The probe uses a HUMICAP capacitive polymer H chip to measure relative humidity over the 0 to 100% RH range. A PRT measures temperature over the -40° to +60°C range.
