HMT370EX can display error messages either in Vaisala Insight PC software or in the transmitter's local display.

The messages are categorized according to the severity of the status:

  • Critical errors are fatal to the operation of the device. It may not be able to respond to communication at all, and will not measure correctly.
  • Errors prevent normal operation of the device. Depending on the problem, errors may resolve themselves. For example, a completely wet humidity sensor may cause a humidity measurement error.
  • Warnings do not prevent normal operation but may indicate possible problems.
  • Status indicates a known state of the device.
