Digital Humidity Sensors (RH/T)
Sensirion is the world’s leading manufacturer of digital relative humidity sensors. By pioneering digital humidity sensors 20 years ago, Sensirion has defined an industry standard with the SHTxx series. Best-in-class products, unmatched experience, and excellent application support make Sensirion the no. 1 partner for humidity sensing.
Next generation RH/T sensor platform with multiple accuracy and interface options.
- 1.08 - 3.6 V supply voltage
- I2C interface
- Average current: 0.4 µA (at meas. rate 1 Hz)
Established RH/T sensor platform with multiple accuracy and interface options.
- 2.15 - 5.5 V supply voltage
- I2C and analog interface options
- Various protection options (protective cover, filter membrane)
The SHT40 builds on a completely new and optimized CMOSens® chip that offers reduced power consumption and improved accuracy specifications. With the extended supply voltage range from 1.08 V to 3.6 V, it’s the perfect fit for mobile and battery-driven applications. The exceptionally small size in a robust DFN housing enables integration into challenging designs while meeting the highest reliability demands, as demonstrated by the JEDEC JESD47 qualification.

Health and Comfort
Humidity and temperature significantly affect personal health and comfort; thus, the measurement of humidity and temperature in this context can improve personal well-being. Applications include humidifiers, baby monitors, and home care respiratory equipment.
Quality and Reliability
Humidity and temperature influence the quality and reliability of numerous processes. Measuring humidity and temperature can help improve the quality and reliability of such processes. Applications include data logging in the logistics of sensitive goods, humidity sensing in printers, and water intrusion detection in critical electronic devices.
Measurement of humidity and temperature can help optimize processes and thus save energy and costs. Applications include automotive engine control, smart condensation control for refrigerators, and optimization of A/C cooling cycles.
Humidity and temperature may influence the safety of a system, a process, or a person; thus, humidity and temperature measurement can help ensure their safety. Applications include automotive windshield anti-fogging, water intrusion detection in battery packs, and building supervision for insurance purposes.
On our developer website you can find many application ideas using humidity and temperature sensors. Furthermore, there are various tutorials for different platforms available. Here are some examples:
AirTouch® is an input method for touchless interaction with a device. Due to the very high humidity of human breath, it can be detected if a user is blowing onto a device and thus trigger an activity.
Smart Speakers offer a lot of useful and fun features. By implementing Sensirion's environmental sensors, the device learns about the ambience and can provide information on indoor air quality, ambient temperature and humidity.
