HF5-EX Two-channel transmitters

New product
More info

The new HygroFlex5-EX series is the latest development in two-channel transmitters for the exact measurement of humidity and temperature in explosive atmospheres. This device conforms to the latest international standards.

The HF5-EX series consists of a robust aluminum transmitter with or without display. The attached probes are cast into a stainless steel tube, and are certified for operation in Zone 0/20. The transmitter itself is certified for Zone 1/21. The intelligent design of the circuitry with electrical isolation permits the measuring system to be operated without an intrinsically safe power supply.
