The DHT22 is a basic, low-cost digital temperature and humidity sensor. It uses a capacitive humidity sensor and a thermistor to measure the surrounding air, and spits out a digital signal on the data pin (no analog input pins needed). Its fairly simple to use, but requires careful timing to grab data. The only real downside of this sensor is you can only get new data from it once every 2 seconds, so when using our library, sensor readings can be up to 2 seconds old.


DHT22, AM2302 humidity capacitor module is a digital temperature and humidity have been calibrated with digital signal output of the temperature and humidity combined sensor. Its application-specific modules capture technology and digital temperature and humidity sensor technology to ensure product with high reliability and excellent long-term stability. Sensor consists of a capacitive sense element and a precision wet NTC temperature measurement devices, and with a high-performance 8-bit microcontroller connected. Therefore, the product has excellent quality, fast response, anti-interference ability, high cost and so on. Each sensor in a very precise calibration of humidity calibration chamber. Calibration coefficients stored in the microcontroller program, the sensor detects the signal processing within the process to call these calibration coefficients. Standard single-bus interface, the system integration becomes simpler and quicker. Small size, low power consumption, signal transmission distance up to 20 meters, making it a wide range of applications and even the most demanding applications is the best choice. Products are divided into 3-lead (single-bus interface), and 4-wire connection easy, free to choose any kind of bus way. Special packages can be provided according to user needs.
