New probe for reliability.
The new RHT3 provides reliable humidity and temperature measurement.

Long-term stability.
The RHT3 has a new generation 180R sensor that has excellent stability and withstands well harsh environments. The probe structure is solid and the sensor is protected with a sintered teflon filter, which gives maximum protection against liquid water, dust, and dirt.

Warmed probe and high humidity environment.
Measuring humidity reliably is challenging in environments where humidity is near saturation. Measurements may be corrupted by fog, mist, rain, and heavy dew. A wet probe may not give an accurate measurement in the ambient air.  As the sensor head is warmed continuously, the humidity level inside it stays below the ambient level. Thus, it also reduces the risk of condensation forming on the probe.

Fast temperature measurement.
What’s more, with its fast response time, the additional temperature probe for the RHT3 is ideal for measurement in environments with changing temperatures.

Long lifetime.
Protecting the sensor from scattered and direct solar radiation, and precipitation will increase its lifetime. Thus, ICT recommends installing the RHT3 in one of the following radiation shields: DTR503, DTR13, or a Stevenson screen.

Easy maintenance.
The probe can be calibrated using a pc with a USB cable, with the push buttons, or with the MI70 indicator.
