Steam Sensor (SKU:SEN0121)

From DFRobot Electronic Product Wiki and Tutorial: Arduino and Robot Wiki-DFRobot.com

Introduction

This is a steam sensor from DFRobot. This steam sensor can be connected to the Arduino IO Expansion shield directly. The output voltage will increase when the humidity of the sensor surface goes up.

Applications

Simple rain detector Cheap steam level switch Touch sensor based on humidity

Warning: The connector is not waterproof, please be careful not to put the connector directly in water.

Specification
