Smart Hydrogen Sensors use advanced thin film microsensors. These
sensors overcome the limitations of existing technologies and
offer superior performance and reliability for hydrogen sensing.
They operate at lower temperature than conventional combustible
gas sensors, which dramatically improves reliability and eliminates
interference from other gases. These sensors are produced using
silicon micro-machining technology which yields highly reproducible
devices that do not require custom “trim” resistors
common with catalytic sensors.
- Operation in both air and inert backgrounds
- Pressure and temperature compensated
- No signal interference from other gases
The sensor electronics
are designed to provide a small, low power package to accompany
the sensor. The Smart Hydrogen Sensors can be used as individual
sensors or networked using built-in RS-485 network capability.
The sensor modules can be easily incorporated into existing data
systems such as VME, PC-104, or PLC based systems. A sensor network
can be arranged in daisy chain or point-to-point configurations.
