Ceramic Sensor

Technology

Ceramic moisture sensors are made from state-of-the-art metalized ceramic and replace traditional materials such as aluminum, silicon and hygroscopic salts in moisture measurement technology. The sensor is made from a ceramic tile that is plated and vapor deposited to form a surface that is very sensitive to small changes in water vapor pressure. Proprietary coating processes make ceramic sensors inherently faster to respond than other impedance type sensors currently available. They also feature greater resistance to corrosive gases and other contaminants. Ceramic moisture sensors will operate at pressures from near vacuum to 5000 PSIG and temperatures from -40℉ to +140℉ and are equipped with a built-in thermistor for automatic temperature compensation.
