Rated 5 out of 5 by from Exactly what was needed! We have had this unit installed and working with a MS Access database that reads the Temp / RH on a timer and prints it on the calibration certificate. Working perfectly so far!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy Temp/Humidity Logging I bought this temperature/humidity probe for our physical testing lab and attached it to the USB port of a PC attached to a test instrument running in lab ambient conditions. The probe was easy to install after downloading Omega's software and logs our testing conditions but I had to get help running the software. Omega's data logging team was able to help.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for awesome price! just bought this product a week ago and couldn't be more pleased. The usb and software makes using this device so easy and just requires downloading the software. The data is very very easy to copy and paste to excel. The software's plotting program is not the best but is good for a quick view of whats going on. 100% would recommend and I already thinking about how I can buy more sensors from omega... seriously so easy to use.

Is this require to be calibrated annually?

Asked by: JAM1991
Performance of the sensor can vary depending on frequency of use, application and storage conditions, so there is no simple answer to your question. Calibration requirements are based on your company procedures. Some companies require equipment to be calibrated annually. Others are comfortable with calibration only when the item readings are drifting from the specs.

How is it that I am not able to configure that device under TOOLS > CONFIGURE > CHANNEL X? We ran the software in administrator mode. Serial No is not display correctly. The configure device button is gray out. What now?

Does this unit come with a calibration certificate? Does the unit need to be sent back to an authorized Omega dealer for re-calibration? Need to know for non-US locations.

Asked by: LeahM
Thank you for your question. All Omega products are provided with CAL-1 ( cert of conformance). You can request a Cal-2 ( nist instrument calibration) which is no charge when you place an order. If service is required you can send back directly to Omega. Just contact Customer Service-1-800-622-2378 or CSERVICE@OMEGA.COM.

Is this sensor pressure rated? I.E. if placed in a sealed system (45psi), will it leak pressure through the sensor?

Asked by: seend
Thank you for the inquiry. This sensor is not rated for pressure. It would leak through. Best regards OMEGA

My RH-USB probe came with a white, porous plastic/teflon cover that slides over the end, blocking the inlet screens. Does this cap serve some purpose other than to keep crud from getting in the probe during shipping? Do I run the probe with it on or off?

Asked by: Sonartech
Thank you for your inquiry Sonartech. The purpose of the cap is for protection during shipping. You can still use to cover the sensor for protection.

The “RH_USB Command Reference.doc” indicates how to send a command to request the model number and firmware version but doesn’t give a command for Serial Number. What command is used to request the RH-USB instrument serial number?

Asked by: Test Engineer MS
Thank you for your question. Unfortunately, there is no command for serial number.
