Overview

The Honeywell HumidIcon™ Digital Humidity/Temperature Sensors, HIH6100 Series, are digital output-type relative humidity (RH) and temperature sensors combined in the same package. These sensors provide an accuracy level of ±4.0 %RH and a temperature accuracy level of ±0.5 °C.

The easiest way to use this sensor is to purchase it on a breakout board. These boards are available from most hardware kit suppliers. The one we use was purchased from Sparkfun and is shown above.

Specifications

  • Silicon temp sensor built into ASIC
  • Operating Temperature is -25 °C to 85 °C [-13 °F to 185 °F]
  • Operating Humidity Range is 0% RH to 100 %RH
  • Repeatability RH: ±0.5 %RH
  • Long term stability: ±0.05 %RH
  • Accuracy (Best Fit Straight Line) is ±4 %RH
  • Output Signal - Digital I2C, address 0x27
  • Supply Voltage - 3.3 Vdc typ.
  • Supply Current - 650 µA

The supply voltage of HIH6130 must be in the range of 2.3 – 5.5V, recommended supply voltage is 3.3V.

Power supply pins Supply Voltage (VDD) and Ground (GND) must be decoupled with a capacitor. Refer to Suggested Circuit below.
