Access can humidify the supply air by controlling the output of a single stage humidifier. The humidification of the supply air is PID regulated to increase relative humidity in the room (or extract air) to the setpoint value. An analog output is used to control a humidifier. The output will increase on decreasing room (or extract air) humidity. A digital output can also be used to start a humidifier.


The humidification of the supply air can be monitored and limited by installing optional RH duct sensor and adjusting appropriate settings. The limitation is determined by "Max limit humidity supply air" and "Hysteresis for max limit humidity supply air":


If the maximum limitation is 80 % RH and the hysteresis is 20 % RH, the controller output signal will begin decreasing at 60 % RH. When halfway to 80 % RH (i.e. when at 70 % RH), half the output signal will be damped. If the humidity in the duct still reaches 80 % RH, the entire output signal will be damped.
