Re: Measuring humidity

Mark, is this expensive? I want something cheap, as long as it's reasonably reliable. I'm not sure why the remote unit would be necessary or useful to me, since I just want a reading of RH in the air next to the print where it's being coated and exposed, at the time it's being coated and exposed; also, a cumulative readout wouldn't be at all interesting or useful to me. I need it only for this set of tests; I'm not going to be monitoring the humidity all the time, as I don't see any particular need for it in my situation. Camden, I did call the local Radio Shack; they don't have any in right now, but they cost $32 when they do have them. I was relieved to read that you got yours for $15, and will check with hardware stores tomorrow, thanks.

The nicest hygrometers and most usefull ones are those that have a remote unit...you can put the remote unit in a humidity chamber and set the other unit elsewhere and monitor the humidity...they also have cumulutive readouts, so you can get the average RH too.
