Chambers Versus Room Monitoring: What Sensors Are Best For Your Application?

Many chamber applications are cold temperature applications and usually temperature is the only parameter monitored. Cold air cannot hold much moisture so it is uncommon to use a humidity sensor in a cold temperature situation (specifically closed chamber situations wherein the air is cycled over the cooler to remove the condensation. But initial cooling will result in 100% RH. But for the purposes of continuous monitoring we can go with the lower RH accompanying colder temperatures). Low temperature presumes low humidity.
