Monitoring humidity


relative humidity

Relative humidity is generally experienced as comfortable, as it is between 30 and 70%. There is a relationship between the relative humidity of air and closely related surface condensation, and the survival and growth conditions for micro-organisms such as bacteria, fungi and viruses. Strictly speaking, this involves the relative humidity on or in the finishing material, and does not call for reducing the relative humidity of the air. However, in high relative humidity (above 60-70%) results also depend on the thermal quality (insulation) of the building envelope. A high relative humidity in the material promotes the growth of bacteria, fungi and viruses. The above provides the standard values ​​listed in the following table.

Complaints about "dry" air are usually caused by a combination of factors. Some people are able to perceive sensory differences in humidity; a low humidity is usually noted earlier by static discharges, and then sometimes by a  dry throat or eyes. Complaints about a dry throat and eyes are more often an indication of poor ventilation. Poor ventilation can result in contaminants such as dust, body odor etc. accumulating, causing irritation of mucous membranes.

The Aurolex can easily be connected to sensors that can continuously monitor the relative humidity. This can be combined with 8 other analog sensors such as CO2, O2, temperature etc. We distinguish inside and outside applications in terms of sensors.
