HUMIDEX with COMET Hx5xx WebSensors

The humidex (short for humidity index) is an index number used to describe how hot the weather feels to the average person, by combining the effect of heat and humidity.

The humidex (short for humidity index) is an index number used by Canadian meteorologists to describe how hot the weather feels to the average person, by combining the effect of heat and humidity. The term humidex is a Canadian innovation coined in 1965. The humidex is a dimensionless quantity based on the dew point.

Range of humidex - Scale of comfort:
20 to 29 °C: Little to no discomfort
30 to 39 °C: Some discomfort
40 to 45 °C: Great discomfort; avoid exertion
Above 45 °C: Dangerous; heat stroke quite possible

Now you can also measure HUMIDEX with the H Series WebSensor sensors
