A must-have for any environmental control or weather station applications, this humidity sensor measures relative humidity from 0% to 100% in non-condensing environments. This low-cost module also comes equipped with a temperature sensor that can measure from -40°C to +85°C, making it well worth the port it occupies on your VINT Hub. See the "Compatible Products" tab for a list of Hubs.



Other Options

If you're interested in this board solely for its temperature sensing capabilities, you're better off getting the TMP1000 - Temperature Phidget.

Getting Started

Welcome to the HUM1000 user guide! In order to get started, make sure you have the following hardware on hand:


Next, you will need to connect the pieces:

HUM1000 Functional.jpeg
  1. Connect the HUM1000 to the VINT Hub using the Phidget cable.
  2. Connect the VINT Hub to your computer with a USB cable.


Now that you have everything together, let's start using the HUM1000!

Using the HUM1000

Phidget Control Panel

In order to demonstrate the functionality of the HUM1000, the Phidget Control Panel running on a Windows machine will be used.


The Phidget Control Panel is available for use on both macOS and Windows machines. If you would like to follow along, first take a look at the getting started guide for your operating system:


Linux users can follow the getting started with Linux guide and continue reading here for more information about the HUM1000.

First Look

After plugging the HUM1000 into your computer and opening the Phidget Control Panel, you will see something like this:

The Phidget Control Panel will list all connected Phidgets and associated objects, as well as the following information:

  • Serial number: allows you to differentiate between similar Phidgets.
  • Channel: allows you to differentiate between similar objects on a Phidget.
  • Version number: corresponds to the firmware version your Phidget is running. If your Phidget is listed in red, your firmware is out of date. Update the firmware by double-clicking the entry.


The Phidget Control Panel can also be used to test your device. Double-clicking on an object will open an example.

Humidity

Double-click on the Humidity Sensor object in order to run the example:

Humidity Example.jpg


General information about the selected object will be displayed at the top of the window. You can also experiment with the following functionality:

  • Modify the change trigger and/or data interval value by dragging the sliders. For more information on these settings, see the data interval/change trigger page.

Temperature Sensor

Double-click on the Temperature Sensor object in order to run the example:

HUM1000 TemperatureSensorIC Example.jpg


General information about the selected object will be displayed at the top of the window. You can also experiment with the following functionality:

  • Modify the change trigger and/or data interval value by dragging the sliders. For more information on these settings, see the data interval/change trigger page.
  • The measured temperature can be seen next to the Temperature label. Cover the board with your hands to see the temperature quickly rise.


Techincal Details

Current Consumption

The HUM1000's current consumption depends on which sensors are configured, and what the data interval is set to.

If neither of the sensors are configured or opened, the device will consume approximately 43µA.

What to do Next

  • Software Overview - Find your preferred programming language here to learn how to write your own code with Phidgets!
  • General Phidget Programming - Read this general guide to the various aspects of programming with Phidgets. Learn how to log data into a spreadsheet, use Phidgets over the network, and much more.
  • Phidget22 API - The API is a universal library of all functions and definitions for programming with Phidgets. Just select your language and device and it'll give you a complete list of all properties, methods, events, and enumerations that are at your disposal.

VINT Hubs

This Phidget is a smart device that must be controlled by a VINT Hub. For more information about VINT, have a look at the VINT Primer. You can use a Phidget Cable to simply and easily connect the two devices. Here's a list of all of the different VINT Hubs currently available:

Image Part Number Price Number of VINT Ports
HUB0000_0 $30.00 6
SBC3003_0 $120.00 6

Phidget Cables

Use a Phidget cable to connect this device to the hub. You can solder multiple cables together in order to make even longer Phidget cables, but you should be aware of the effects of having long wires in your system.
