Advantages and features of infrared gas sensors
Infrared gas sensor is a sensor that uses infrared spectroscopy technology to detect gas. It has the advantages of fast response, high precision, good stability, and strong anti-interference ability, and is widely used in industry, environmental protection, medical and other fields.
Advantages of Infrared Gas Sensors
1.Fast response speed
The response speed of infrared gas sensors is usually on the millisecond level and can quickly respond to changes in gas concentration. This is very important for applications that require real-time monitoring of gas concentrations.
The accuracy of infrared gas sensors is usually within ±1%, which can meet the requirements of most applications.
The infrared gas sensor has good stability and its performance will not decrease significantly during long-term use.
4.Strong anti-interference ability
Infrared gas sensors are not sensitive to interference from environmental temperature, humidity, dust and other factors, and can maintain good detection performance.
Characteristics of infrared gas sensors
The working principle of the infrared gas sensor is based on the absorption characteristics of infrared light by gas. When gas molecules absorb infrared light, energy conversion occurs, causing changes in the spectrum. Infrared gas sensors determine the type and concentration of gases by detecting changes in the spectrum.
Infrared gas sensors are mainly composed of infrared emitters, optical systems, detectors and signal processing systems. The infrared emitter emits infrared light, the optical system focuses the infrared light onto the detector, the detector converts the spectral changes into electrical signals, and the signal processing system converts the electrical signals into gas concentration values.
Infrared gas sensors can be divided into non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) gas sensors and dispersive infrared (DIR) gas sensors. NDIR gas sensor uses non-dispersive spectroscopic analysis technology, which has the advantages of simple structure, low cost and fast response speed. The DIR gas sensor uses dispersive spectroscopy analysis technology, which has the advantages of high resolution and high accuracy.
Applications of infrared gas sensors
Infrared gas sensors are widely used in industry, environmental protection, medical and other fields. In the industrial field, infrared gas sensors are mainly used to monitor harmful gases in factory environments, such as flammable gases, poisonous gases, etc. In the field of environmental protection, infrared gas sensors are mainly used to monitor pollutants in the atmospheric environment, such as carbon dioxide, methane, etc. In the medical field, infrared gas sensors are mainly used to monitor gas components in human blood, such as oxygen, carbon dioxide, etc.
Infrared gas sensors have many advantages and have been widely used in various fields. With the continuous development of technology, the performance of infrared gas sensors will be further improved and the application scope will be wider.
