Hi,

There have been several different types of humidity sensor fitted in these stations and I thought the more recent versions use the same sensor for temperature and humidity. However, it should still be on a small module or "daughter board", so quite easy to exchange. See photos # 4 and # 11 on the first page of this thread.

Cheers, Alan.

Hi,

I have two different transmitter, look at the pictures, once with a "daughter board" and once without.
But both have a white component, is this the Humidity-Sensor?
But I can not find a name on the White component, if this are the humidity-sensor, what is the name or were I can buy it?

Many thanks for help.

Probably an SHT11 or similar.
They seem to be about £2 or so on ebay.

Hi,

Possibly worth a try, but it could be a SHT/DHT 15 or 21, or AM2301, etc.. First thing to check is if it's using 2, 3 or 4 wires/pins to connect to the main board. That may help determine if it's an I2C, SPI or a "one-way" data bus.

The sensor is probably made by the Chinese company "Hope Microelectronics", but AFAIK they only/mainly supply to OEMs, not distributors.

The "White module" on the daughter board of one of my transmitters is the humidity sensor, but uses only 2 pins. Two pads marked NTC are not populated and there appears to be a SMD chip on the underside.

Cheers, Alan.

Hi,

SHT11 has 4 pins,
but the sensor in my transmitter has only 2 pins.
