The UHQ-4P is a chilled mirror hygrometer that is designed for measuring elevated dew points, such as those found in fuel cell and combustion applications. Using technology developed for the CR-1A, CR-2 and CR-3, this instrument is unique because it does not use TE coolers to cool the mirror and thus is extremely fast and can handle very high temperatures.

Cryogenic Hygrometer - CR-2 - from Buck Research Instruments L.L.C.
The CR-2 exhibits the same wide range, fast response and high reliability as the CR-1A, but it is smaller and lighter in weight. Mirror cooling is done by a closed cycle cryocooler rather than liquid nitrogen. Maintenance requirements are minimal. (read more)
The CR-4 from Buck Research Instruments, is a chilled mirror hygrometer that uses a 3-stage thermoelectric cooler (TEC) to enable frost point measurements of as low as - 60°C, under favorable ambient conditions. Depending upon ambient temperature, it can measure dew points as high as 60°C. (read more)
The CR-5 is a chilled mirror hygrometer that uses a 3-stage thermoelectric cooler (TEC) to enable frost point measurements of as low as 60 °C, under favorable ambient conditions. It is configured as a transmitter module with an external sensor connected by cable up to 9 feet in length. (read more)
Buck Research Instruments' humidity conversion calculator App for the iPhonel allows conversions to/from dew point, relative humidity, mixing ratio, absolute humidity and vapor pressure, as well as calculating how these properties change when changing pressure and temperature. (read more)
The VAPORPAK® is a battery-powered, portable humidity generator for calibrating a wide variety of humidity sensors in-situ. It is extremely accurate and stable over a wide range of temperatures and humidities. It has numerous options for a wide variety of calibration applications. (read more)
Buck Research Instruments' CR-3 Cryogenic Hygrometer utilizes a closed cycle cryocooler, but differs in that it cannot be used on aircraft. The CR-3 is specifically designed for long-term, continuous-use applications where the instrument will be mounted in a fixed location such as a laboratory. (read more)
The 1011C Aircraft Hygrometer is a complete chilled mirror optical dew point system for monitoring atmospheric dew and frost points. It provides three stages of thermoelectric cooling, and can reach frost points as low as -60 to -90 °C, depending on mounting configuration and operating conditions. No auxiliary coolants are required. (read more)
