The Intelligent-Ceiling Temperature and Humidity Sensor (CTH) adds a high-precision temperature and humidity sensor pre-calibrated from the factory.
| How It Works
The CTH uses a proprietary 1-wire protocol to communicate with a master device such as SmartNode, SmartStat, or HyperStat.
- Temperature (typical +/-0.2C)
- Humidity (typical +/- 2% R.H.)
3-wire interface for power and communication
The CTH mounts on a ceiling by a threaded bush.
The module drop is adjusted with a set screw.
The sensor plugs into the standard 3wire sensor bus that 75F offers on its Nodes and Stats using the 3 Pin to 3 Pin cable of lengths 18 inches, 20, 30, and 50 feet, as shown below.
In principle, the CTH can be daisy-chained with other sensors on the 1-wire bus to provide an extensible sensor network.
With its capability to be a part of the daisy chain, combining it with other sensors in the bus, using the daisy chain adapter, and with 3 Pin to 3 Pin cable of lengths 18 inches, 20, 30, and 50 feet, the Ceiling Sensor can be made a part of the Daisy Chain as Below.
When Daisy Chained
- Not more than 1 Ceiling Sensor can be daisy chained in the bus, due to the absence of an address setting mechanism.
- The Temperature and Humidity values of the sensors in the bus are averaged for the master device
