A new generation with a completely new design is now replacing the previous highly-successful and proven JUMO device series of indoor hygrostats. Development for the new device focused not only on flawless engineering, but also on the design of the indoor hygrostat. As a result, the new case not only features better key measuring technology data, but also impressive elegance, easy installation, and robustness.
Hygrostats are essentially two-point switches that are used as a simple
method of regulating relative humidity. No electrical power supply is
required for them. A hygroscopic fiber measuring element tests the air
humidity and converts the measured value into an ON/OFF signal using a
microswitch. The setpoint value dial, which can be adjusted within the
range of 30 to 100 % r.h., can optionally be concealed in a case to
prevent unwanted adjustment. A gold changeover contact is now also
available for control of electronic units to ensure reliable control of
low currents in the range of 1 to 100 mA.
Hygrostats are used most often for humidifying and dehumidifying air. They are also used to monitor the climate in residential and office buildings, computer rooms, and storage buildings as well as control cabinets.
