for those who need temp/hum read
    #771374 - 07/23/02 07:57 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

i was looking around on another site (reptile site) and i found this. i thought it might be of some use to some of you folks, as i do often see questions about humidity and temperature readings. it seemed pretty cheap to me, and i know that this company sells quality supplies. if you wanted to look around im sure that you could find other supplies that you could utilize for our hobby as opposed to theirs:)

(if this doesnt show up as a link, just cut and paste)

if i 've posted this in the wrong forum i am sorry (please move it to the approprite one)...this is just the place that ive seen questions. i know that im going to buy one and i thought that other people might want one.

My experience with digital thermometers/hygrometers hasn?t been all that good.

I have owned the Radio Shack 63-1030 & 63-103's1found here
since about 3-1-02.

Like the digital units listed in your message and the ones here
they all say are accurate up to 90% for humidity.

I can?t speak for all of them but I can speak for the Radio Shack units, as I own one 63-1030 & two 63-1031's.

I have never put the 63-1030 in an incubation chamber or a terrarium. It was used to read the remotes (63-1031) which were kept in the incubation chamber and the terrarium.

Temps have always been accurate but their accuracy in reading the humidity is not. They read up to 96% and will read no higher. After about a month the humidity part always read 96%. The only way to get it to drop was to let it dry out for a couple days but then it would go haywire after being put back.

Anno had suggested getting an analog hygrometer like the one found here
and to calibrate it as per the instructions found here

The analog is rock solid, the digital is not. While the analog and the digital check out fine using the calibration method they part ways in terms of accuracy in hi humidity.

So While the digitals read temps fine they don?t fair well in hi humidity.
The analog will read humidity on the hi end with no problems.

Or you can just buy a Hydra Pod and you wont have to worry about temp and humidity monitoring in most cases.

Again my experiences are only with the Radio Shack units. The others may fair better.
