Canada’s Instrumentation Leader Since 1946.
A solar-powered wireless sensor that works with the HOBOnet system to monitor air temperature and relative humidity. HOBOnet wireless sensors communicate data directly to the HOBO RX3000 or the HOBO MicroRX station, or pass data through other wireless sensors back to the central station. They are preconfigured and ready to deploy, and data is accessed through HOBOlink, Onset’s innovative cloud software platform.
In what environment does this sensor operate?
This sensor operates in an outdoor environment.
What measurements does this sensor support?
The RXW-THC-xxx sensor supports the following measurements: Evapotranspiration, Relative Humidity and Temperature.
|Measurement Range||-40°C to 75°C (-40°F to 167°F)||0–100% RH at -40° to 75°C (-40° to 167°F); exposure to conditions below -20°C (-4°F) or above 95%
RH may temporarily increase the maximum RH sensor error by an additional 1%
|Accuracy||±0.25°C from -40° to 0°C (±0.45°F from -40° to 32°F)
±0.20°C from 0° to 70°C (±0.36°F from 32° to 158°F)
±0.25°C from 70° to 100°C (±0.45°F from 158° to 212°F)
|±2.5% from 10% to 90% RH typical to a maximum of ±3.5% including hysteresis at 25°C (77°F);
below 10% and above 90% ±5% typical
|Resolution||0.02°C (0.036°F)||0.01% RH|
|Drift||<0.01°C (0.018°F) per year||<1% per year typical|
|Response Time||Without solar radiation shield: 2 minutes,
30 seconds in air moving 1 m/sec
With RS3-B solar radiation shield: 5 minutes in air moving 1 m/sec
|5 minutes in air moving 1 m/sec with protective cap|
|Operating Temperature Range||-25° to 60°C (-13° to 140°F) with rechargeable batteries
-40 to 70°C (-40 to 158°F) with lithium batteries
|Radio Power||12.6 mW (+11 dBm) non-adjustable|
|Transmission Range||Reliable connection to 457.2 m (1,500 ft) line of sight at 1.8 m (6 ft) high
Reliable connection to 609.6 m (2,000 ft) line of sight at 3 m (10 ft) high
|Wireless Data Standard||IEEE 802.15.4|
|Radio Operating Frequencies||RXW-THC-900: 904–924 MHz
RXW-THC-868: 866.5 MHz
RXW-THC-922: 916–924 MHz
|Modulation Employed||OQPSK (Offset Quadrature Phase Shift Keying)|
|Data Rate||Up to 250 kbps, non-adjustable|
|Maximum Number of Motes||50 motes per one RX Wireless Sensor Network|
|Battery Type/ Power Source||Two AA 1.2 V rechargeable NiMH batteries powered by built-in solar panel or two AA 1.5 V lithium batteries for operating conditions of -40 to 70°C (-40 to 158°F)|
|Battery Life||With NiMH batteries: Typical 3–5 years when operated in the temperature range -20° to 40°C (-4°F to 104°F) and positioned toward the sun (see Deployment and Mounting), operation outside this range will reduce the battery service life
With lithium batteries: 1 year, typical use
|Dimensions||Sensor: 5.1 x 33 mm (0.2 x 1.3 inches)
Cable length: 2 m (6.56 ft)
Mote: 16.2 x 8.59 x 4.14 cm (6.38 x 3.38 x 1.63 inches)
|Weight||Sensor and cable: 110 g (3.88 oz);
Mote: 223 g (7.87 oz)
Mote: PCPBT, silicone rubber seal
|Environmental Rating||Sensor: Weatherproof: 0 to 100% RH intermittent condensing environments. For best results, the sensor should be mounted inside a protective enclosure, such as a solar radiation shield. Mote: IP67, NEMA|
|Compliance Marks|| RXW-THC-900
