Electronic Hygrostat
EFL 012 | 12 to 48 VDC

  • Large setting range
  • Small hysteresis
  • Optical operating display (LED)
  • Change-over contact
  • Signal application

The electronic hygrostat registers the surrounding relative humidity and can switch a signal current via its internal relay with a potential-free change-over contact. Signal-processing devices can be controlled directly with the EFL 012. In order to control heating and cooling equipment, filter fans and signal devices the switch module DCM 010 or a similar device is needed. The LED integrated in the adjustment knob shows the closed status of the contact 1-2. When relative humidity drops contact 1-2 opens and the LED turns off. In currentless state (no supply voltage) contact 1-2 opens.
