Control of water vapor, or humidity, is essential for the quality and efficacy of thousands of products and systems that affect our lives daily – from food and medicines through to heating and ventilation control. Accurate, reliable humidity sensors and instruments are important, but it’s equally important to understand how humidity measurements are made and the situations that can affect the accuracy of readings.
