Title
(EN) A SENSOR, SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR DETECTING OR SENSING MOISTURE OR WETNESS OF AN ARTICLE
(FR) CAPTEUR, SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE DÉTECTION DE L'HUMIDITÉ D'UN ARTICLE
Abstract
(EN)
The present invention relates to a sensor, system and method for detecting or sensing moisture or wetness of an article. Instead of conventional methods for detecting or sensing moisture or wetness of an article such as visual checking which requires constant inspection of the article, and for many articles is not possible, or the use of chemically activated indicators which are generally single use, the present invention uses electrical charge to detect or sense the moisture or wetness of an article. In that way, the present invention aims to provide a reusable way for detecting or sensing moisture or wetness in different articles. The present invention may be used in applications where moisture or wetness changes often.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne un capteur, un système et un procédé de détection de l'humidité d'un article. Au lieu de procédés classiques de détection de l'humidité d'un article tel qu'un contrôle visuel qui nécessite une inspection constante de l'article, et qui pour de nombreux articles n'est pas possible, ou l'utilisation d'indicateurs activés chimiquement qui sont généralement à usage unique, la présente invention utilise une charge électrique pour détecter l'humidité d'un article. De cette manière, la présente invention vise à fournir une manière réutilisable de détecter l'humidité de différents articles. La présente invention peut être utilisée dans des applications où l'humidité change souvent.
