Vaisala HMT330 Series Humidity and Temperature Transmitters

Humidity and Temperature Transmitters
HMT330 Series

The Vaisala HUMICAP® Humidity and Temperature Transmitter Series HMT330 is designed for demanding industrial applications where stable measurement and wide customization is important.

Vaisala HUMICAP® performance
The HMT330 series incorporates Vaisala’s 30 years of experience in industrial humidity measurement. An updated, even more stable and chemical resistant HUMICAP® sensor is available, next to the proven reliable and accurate sensor.

Chemical purge minimizes effects of contaminants
In environments with high concentrations of chemicals and cleaning agents, chemical purge helps to maintain measurement accuracy between calibration intervals.

Chemical purge involves heating the sensor to remove harmful chemicals. The function can be initiated manually or programmed to occur at set intervals.

Graphical display of history and measurement trends
The HMT330 can be ordered with a large numerical and graphical display, which allows the user to clearly monitor operational data, measurement trends and 1-year measurement history. The optional data logger with real-time clock makes it possible to generate over four years of measured history, and zoom in on any desired time or time frame. The battery backup of the clock guarantees a reliable logging of measured data.

The display alarm allows tracking of any measured parameter, with a freely configurable low and high limit.

Data collection and (wireless) transfer to PC
The recorded measurement data can be viewed on the display or transferred to a PC with Microsoft Windows® software. The transmitter can also be connected to a network with an optional (W)LAN interface, which enables a (wireless) Ethernet connection. A USB-RJ45 cable makes it easy to connect the service port of the HMT330 to a PC.

Many ways to install and versatile outputs
Mains and DC power options, and several mounting accessories make the instrument easy to install. The HMT330 can have up to three analog outputs. Isolated galvanic power supply and analog outputs are also available. For serial interface the USB connection, RS232 and RS485 can be used.

Flexible calibration The HMT330 instruments are calibrated at six humidity points at the factory. A quick, one-point field calibration can be performed with the hand-held HM70 meter. A twopoint calibration can be performed with the HMK15 salt bath calibrator in a controlled environment. The transmitter can be sent to Vaisala for recalibration. Accredited calibrations and maintenance contracts are also available.
