Hydrogen and Oxygen Sensors for Launch Systems
Since its inception, MEI has been a developer of innovative hydrogen microsensor technology to meet NASA’s space flight and ground test facility needs. MEI hydrogen sensor technology is a highly sensitive, selective and stable MEMS-based device for measuring hydrogen. These sensors overcome the limitations of existing technologies and offer superior performance and reliability for hydrogen sensing. They operate at lower temperatures 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 can operate in inert gas backgrounds, provide detection ranges from under 10 ppm to 100% hydrogen and have a time response under 15 seconds in compact, low power systems with digital and analog interfaces. MEI produces flight qualified systems tailored for specific mission needs.
MEI’s systems offer the latest in advanced hydrogen microsensor technology for aerospace, industrial and commercial applications on an OEM basis. MEI’s Smart Hydrogen Sensors can be used for: fuel safety, facility monitoring, assembly leak check, industrial gas detection and chemical process monitoring.
