GPS – Gas Property Sensor

First sensor is developing a novel gas property sensor technology by measuring physical gas parameters that provides many advantages. Evaluation kits are available for testing.

The published patented Gas Property Sensor (GPS) module combines a MEMS µ-cavity, pressure, temperature and thermal flow sensor to additionally measure gas viscosity, density, thermal capacity and thermal conductivity allowing improved identification and differentiation of gas mixtures. This improved gas characterization is used to identify gases and gas mixtures and can furthermore be used as pressure sensor or to improve performance of thermal mass flow sensors which results in significantly more accurate flow measurements and can provide cost-effective alternatives to very complex gas analysis for various applications, especially with changing gas compositions.

Features

  • Multidimensional parameter determination allows improved gas mix identification resulting in more accurate flow measurements.
  • Quick and cost-effective alternatives to very complex gas analysis
  • Improved heating value and methane number estimation
  • Miniaturized MEMS GPS can be customized and easily be integrated into the application
  • Very fast measurement about 20 ms and low power consumption (few mW)
  • Non consuming sensor, long-term stable and reliable
  • Wider measurement range 0-100%, resolution up to ~ 100 ppm (depends on gas and application)

Applications

Any application with gas mixtures that needs to be monitored or regulated as for example:

Industrial:
  • Improved flow and differential pressure measurements of gas applications
  • Advanced gas metering
  • Improved regulation and operation of gas burners, motors and dual fuel engines
Mobility:
  • Safety monitoring of lithium cells, fuel cells and LNG engines
Medical:
  • Regulation of anesthesia gases
  • Predictive health monitoring
  • Respiration – w/ specific O2-sensor version
Safety:
  • Environmental monitoring of gas concentrations
