The Model 657-1 relative humidity and temperature transmitter includes two 2-wire circuits to simultaneously produce separate 4-20 mA output signals for relative humidity from 0-100% and temperature from 32 to 212F. Accuracy for humidity is ±2% from 10-90% and for temperature it is ±1F over the full range. The control operates both channels from a single 10-35V dc power supply wired into the relative-humidity current loop. The probe included with the transmitter features an integrated, polymer film, and a relative-humidity sensor plus a separate thin-film platinum sensor for temperature measurement.

The new composites manufacturing innovation center is intended to be a source of grand challenges for industry, like the kind that got us to the moon under JFK. These aren't the words its new CEO Craig Blue used, but that's the idea and the vision behind the Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation (IACMI).
