  • What Are: Dew Point Sensors?

    What is Dew Point? Dew point is the atmospheric temperature (varying according to pressure and humidity) below which water droplets begin to condense and dew (tiny drops of water that) can form. When air has reached the dew-point temperature at a particular pressure, the water vapor in the air is in equilibrium with liquid water,…
