a few days ago I took a smart implant and connected a DHT-22 sensor to it to detect humidity and temperature in a greenhouse.
The Smart implant is powered by a 220-240 V power supply, DC 12V 1.25A, 15W output and is located inside an electrical panel while the sensor is positioned inside the greenhouse.
Please login or register to see this attachment.
Now my problem ... the internal temperature sensor of the smart implant reaches temperatures over 55 ° C even if the air temperature is 30 °.
At midnight tonight the internal sensor measured 35 ° C while the external sensor DHT-22 measured 22 ° C.
This thing seems strange to me also because the operating temperature range reaches max 40 ° C.
In this regard, in fact, the DHT-22 sensor measures the temperature and humidity regularly until the smart implant does not exceed 44 ° C, then flat graph, the DHT-22 stops giving me data.
If I unplug the power and plug it back in for a few minutes then it stops again.
At night, however, everything works perfectly.
What do you think it can be?
Wrong power supply?
Faulty smart implant?
A further test I did was put the smart implant outside the electrical panel, in the open air, the internal sensor still exceeds 47 ° C when in reality it is 30 ° C and the external sensor no longer sends me the data .
