Semiconductor CO gas sensor Introduction
Semiconductor CO gas sensor is a carbon monoxide sensor developed by the semiconductor gas detection principle. Semiconductor CO gas sensor uses semiconductor materials as gas-sensitive materials, using the physical properties such as the conductivity of the semiconductor when in contact with carbon monoxide gas to detect the composition and concentration of carbon monoxide gas. Semiconductor gas sensor has the advantages of high sensitivity, fast response time and recovery time, long service life and low price.
Semiconductor CO gas sensor Features
1, the machine is small in size, light in weight, easy to install, can be mounted in portable, fixed, pipe type and other appearance sensors used.
2, stainless steel protective net, high protection, easy to clean effective protection from particulate matter and impurities, easy to maintain and use.
3, high-performance chip, breakthrough manufacturing process, product performance significantly improved.
4, long service life, low cost, simple driving circuit.
5, high resolution, high sensitivity, fast response speed, strong anti-interference force.
Semiconductor CO gas sensor Parameters
Detection gas: carbon monoxide
CO detection range: 10-500ppm
Product type: semiconductor gas sensor
Standard package: Plastic seal
Loop voltage: ≤24V DC
Load resistance: adjustable
Temperature/humidity: 20°C, 2°C; 55% soil 5%RH
1. Avoid exposure to volatile silica vapors.
2, avoid sensor exposure to high concentration of corrosive gas.
3, avoid alkali, alkali metal salt, halogen pollution.
4, avoid the sensor contact with water or immersed in water, easy to cause the sensor sensitivity characteristics decline.
5, avoid applying too high voltage, if the voltage applied to the sensor heating is higher than the specified value, even if the sensor has not received physical damage or damage, it will cause damage to the lead/or heater, and cause the sensor sensitive characteristics to decline.
WHAT IS CARBON MONOXIDE?
Carbon monoxide is a carbon-oxygen compound with a chemical formula of CO. It is usually a colorless, odorless, and tasteless gas. At the same time, it is toxic. Higher concentrations can cause people to have different levels of symptoms of poisoning, harm the human brain, heart, liver, kidney, lung, and other tissues, and even death by electric shock. The minimum lethal concentration of human inhalation is 5000 ppm (5 minutes).
WHERE DOES CARBON MONOXIDE COME FROM?
Coking, ironmaking, and other production processes in the metallurgical industry
Synthetic ammonia, methanol, and other production processes in the chemical industry
Mine blasting and coal mine gas explosion accidents
Exhaust emissions from vehicles and other vehicles
Incomplete combustion of fuel in the boiler
Gas or liquefied gas pipeline leaks from coal stoves in family rooms, natural disasters such as volcanic eruptions, forest fires, earthquakes, etc.
WHAT IS THE HARM OF CARBON MONOXIDE?
Carbon monoxide is an atmospheric pollutant. It is the most abundant and widely distributed in the atmosphere. It is the product of incomplete combustion of carbonaceous materials such as coal and petroleum.
