The display immediately shows the water content and temperature. The measuring values can be stored in the humimeter RP6 memory, additional information like supplier’s data and notes can be added. The stored values can be sent to a PC if required. Measurements can be printed immediatley via the optionally available portable printer. For measurement of other relevant process parameters, a humidity and temperature sensor can be connected.
