Humidity Measurement Instruments

ROTRONIC humidity instruments

ROTRONIC offers a comprehensive range of humidity instruments, including transmitters, data loggers, indicators, probes, sensors, and humidity generators for the measurement and calibration of relative humidity, dew point, water activity, and other humidity parameters.

The company offers accurate measurement results through stable humidity sensors, combined with ROTRONIC's unique HygroClip® digital technology. Instruments and probes measure both humidity and temperature because temperature is critical to the proper measurement and interpretation of humidity.

Humidity and temperature measurement products

The ROTRONIC product range includes humidity temperature transmitters for heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), and building management systems (BMS), as well as manufacturing and process control applications, handheld humidity temperature indicators, data loggers, generators for metrology laboratories, and meteorological probes.

Further applications include water activity indicators for quality control of foods, pharmaceuticals, and cosmetics. For special applications we offer a line of intrinsically safe humidity probes and transmitters.

High-accuracy humidity probes

The HygroClip2 is a completely new type of humidity probe, with high accuracy and performance. Thanks to ROTRONIC's new AirChip3000 technology, the HygroClip2 also boasts a unique calibration and adjustment process alongside many other superb innovations.

ROTRONIC has taken humidity measurement technology to a whole new level of performance and reliability. The HygroClip2 offers you the best possible reproducibility and a superb system accuracy of <±0.8%rh and ±0.1K.

Humidity transmitters

The HygroFlex series of humidity transmitters is ideal for all applications where exact measurement of humidity and temperature is of decisive importance, such as the food and pharmaceutical, printing and paper, meteorology, agricultural, archaeology, and climatology industries. There is hardly a field today in which these parameters may be ignored. It is ultimately the measuring task on hand that defines the instrument that best covers your needs.

Humidity data loggers

Long-term recording of humidity and temperature conditions is very important in storage, shipping, production processes, test facilities, and many other areas.

Once logged, data can be evaluated statistically, providing valuable information on conditions that can have an influence on people, materials, and objects.

The ROTRONIC data loggers fulfil requirements of Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 21 CFR Part 11 and good automated manufacturing practice (GAMP) 4. The loggers have a high-degree of functionality, while being highly accurate and easy-to-use.

Data can be shown in graph or table form. A large range of interchangeable probes means simple maintenance and flexibility in different applications, and loggers are available in a range of configurations to suit most uses.

Handheld instruments for humidity measurement

The ROTRONIC HygroPalm handheld instruments of the AirChip3000 generation are the perfect instruments for climatic measurements. They are extremely precise and feature many practical functions, but are easy to use.

HygroPalms are adjusted and configured during production and are therefore ready for immediate use. They can be configured for specific applications with user-friendly HW4 software or directly on the keypad. A large range of interchangeable probes enables easy and flexible use, straightforward maintenance and simple calibration.

Humidity and temperature generators

Many customers already use ROTRONIC's HygroGen humidity generators to calibrate their humidity measuring instruments themselves. A significant advantage is the minimisation of instrument downtime and the reduction in administrative work for the customer.

Benefits of the HygroGen humidity and temperature generator include:

  • Generates stable humidity and temperature conditions
  • Transportable calibration instrument
  • Humidity equilibrium typically reached in 3 minutes or less
  • Suitable for the calibration of most relative humidity instruments
  • Integrated touch-screen PC and USB hub
  • Ability to connect and calibrate up to five probes simultaneously
  • Standard external heated sample loop connection
  • Integrated dryer cell condition monitoring
  • Digital water level indication
  • Easy-to-use graphical user interface
  • Direct certificate printing


ROTRONIC was founded in 1965. The company employs around 360 people and markets its products in more than 40 countries worldwide. With branches and agencies in the US, Germany, the UK, France, Taiwan, Singapore, and China, ROTRONIC's emphasis is partly on trade in IT and industrial products and partly on the development and production of humidity and temperature sensors at the company's headquarters in Bassersdorf, Switzerland.
