HTU21D Temperature and Humidity Sensor Tutorial Part 2

If you’ve missed out on part 1 of this tutorial, you can catch up here.

If you closely read theĀ HTU21D_datasheet, you’ll realiseĀ that the humidity data that you read directly from the HTU21D sensor does not meet the device’s guaranteed humidity accuracy of +-3%. Additionally, the sensor is only optimised to perform in the range of 5-95%RH, the rated accuracy of +-3% only applies between 20-80%RH.

This excerpt from the datasheet shows the device’s range of performance.
