Measures Relative Humidity from 10% to 95% with a typical error of ±2%RH at 55% RH.
Measures Ambient Temperature in the range of -30°C to +80° C with a typical error of ±0.75°C in the 0°C to 80°C range.
The temperature sensor component is rated at -40°C to +100°C, but the other components on the board, the connector and the cable are rated at -30°C to +80°C. In a fast prototyping environment the temperature sensor board can be pushed to the ratings of the sensor component, but you should use the lower temperature ratings if you plan to use the 1125 in a commercial application.

Welcome to the 1125 user guide! In order to get started, make sure you have the following hardware on hand:
Next, you will need to connect the pieces:
Now that you have everything together, let's start using the 1125!
In order to demonstrate the functionality of the 1125, we will connect it to the HUB0000, and then run an example using the Phidget Control Panel on a Windows machine.
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 1125.
After plugging in the 1125 into the HUB0000, and the HUB0000 into your computer, open 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:
The Phidget Control Panel can also be used to test your device. Double-clicking on an object will open an example.
Double-click on a Voltage Ratio Input object in order to run the example:
General information about the selected object will be displayed at the top of the window. You can also experiment with the following functionality:
Since this sensor sends a ratiometric signal through the Phidget cable, you must use the VoltageRatioInput API to interface with this device. To ensure the signal from the 1125 is properly processed, you must be sure to set the following parameters in your program:
|VINT Hub Port (VINT HUB)||Analog Input Port (Interface Kit)|
|sensorType||1125_HUMIDITY or 1125_TEMPERATURE||1125_HUMIDITY or 1125_TEMPERATURE|
The 1125 is a precision temperature to voltage converter that outputs a voltage that is directly proportional to temperature. The temperature sensor component is rated at -40°C to +100°C, but the other components on the board, the connector and the cable are rated at -30°C to +80°C. In a fast prototyping environment the 1125 can be pushed to the ratings of the sensor component, but you should use the lower temperature ratings if you plan to use the 1125 in a commercial application.
The 1125 measures the relative humidity of the environment around the sensor. Built in temperature compensation produces a linear output ranging from 10% to 95% relative humidity. Values outside of this range may be usable but will have increased error.
The Phidget libraries can automatically convert sensor voltage into temperature (°C) and humidity (% RH) by selecting the appropriate
SensorType. See the Phidget22 API for more details. The formulas used to translate voltage ratio from the sensor into temperature and relative humidity are as follows:
The Phidget Cable is a 3-pin, 0.100 inch pitch locking connector. Pictured here is a plug with the connections labelled. The connectors are commonly available - refer to the Analog Input Primer for manufacturer part numbers.
This sensor can be read by any Phidget with an Analog Input or VINT Hub port. It will connect to either one using the included Phidget cable. VINT Hub ports can behave just like Analog Inputs, but have the added flexibility of being able to be used as digital inputs, digital outputs, or ports to communicate with VINT devices. For more information about VINT, see the VINT Primer.
|Image||Part Number||Price||Number of Voltage Inputs||Voltage Input Resolution|
|HUB0000_0||$30.00||6 (Shared)||* 16 bit|
|SBC3003_0||$120.00||6 (Shared)||* 16 bit|
This sensor comes with its own Phidget cable to connect it to an InterfaceKit or Hub, but if you need extras we have a full list down below. 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.
