Gas Detection

MF010-0-LC3 SensorGas Detection Sensor refers loosely to any sensor whose main purpose is to measure the concentration of gases. Most provide a variable output signal (either voltage or an industry standard 4 ~ 20mA) that is radiometrically proportional to the select input gas levels. Some applications include oxygen monitoring on commercial or military aircraft, exhaust gas testing, and medical testing units.

Gas Flow

Flow SensorsFlow Sensors are used to measure flow velocity, volumetric flow rate, or mass flow of a liquid or gas. Mass flow for gases is specified in units of standard liters per minute (SLM) or standard cubic centimeters per minute (SCCM). By referencing a volumetric flow to a standard temperature and pressure, an exact mass flow (g/min) can be calculated from volumetric flow.

Humidity

HIH-4000 SensorHumidity Sensors are used in environments where maintenance of a certain humidity level is essential. Such environments include warehouses, drying facilities, and refrigeration. Humidity sensors with many different humidity and operating temperature ranges, packages/cases, and output types are available.
