Given an electronic device that measures humidity using a capacitance based humidity sensor, how would one alter the circuit to make the humidity reading lower?
From what I can see without taking the device out of service, there is a surface mounted capacitor wired as follows:
Figuring it was worth a try, I removed C1 and it seemed to make no difference in what the device reported as the relative humidity. Unfortunately, I can not find a schematic for the device.
Here is an article describing humidity sensors, but I am unable to design a circuit alteration based on what I'm finding there.
