NevadaNano has unveiled a miniaturized version of its molecular property spectrometer (MPS) flammable gas sensor that eliminates the need for maintenance during its 10 plus year lifetime.
The gas sensor measures the thermodynamic properties of the air-gas mix and accurately reports 0 to 100% LEL across 19 flammable gases without the need for field calibration. The device can be used in a range of non-industrial applications and could be used for residential and commercial applications such as smart meters and internet of things (IoT) devices.
The sensor includes enhanced algorithms to extend the lifetime of the sensor while detecting 19 of the most common combustible gases found in residential, commercial and other general use environments. The sensor is used to create safer environments for people and communities, NevadaNano said.
Additionally, the sensor includes integrated, real-time measurements and built-in compensation for temperature, pressure and humidity. Gas concentration readings are accurate across an entire environmental range such as rapid environmental transients, and are immune to drift, decay or poison.
