(O)ur patent pending printed gas sensor platform will enable many new applications for safety sensors that were previously thought to be impossible.
(PRWEB) January 05, 2012
Gas sensors are poised to experience explosive growth through their integration into smartphones and wireless devices. However, a new gas sensor technology is needed to enable applications on these platforms. KWJ Engineering has developed this enabling technology using printed electronics in its innovative Screen Printed Electrochemical Sensors (SPEC SENSORS), that are extremely tiny, thin, flexible, low power, long life and very low cost. They are ideal for integration into wireless platforms and can enable an explosion of innovation and applications. These breakthrough sensors were developed with funding from the National Science Foundation and will be featured at the Consumer Electronic Show in Las Vegas, January 10-13.
Dr. Joseph Stetter, inventor of these revolutionary new sensors, adds "(O)ur patent pending printed gas sensor platform will enable many new applications for safety sensors that were previously thought to be impossible. These sensors offer high performance, long life detection of carbon monoxide and other toxic gases, and are tiny and low power enough to fit inside a cell phone. This is a tremendous advancement in gas sensing that we know will improve safety."
KWJ’s advanced gas sensors are ideal for integration into tiny wireless modules, flexible, wearable modules and smartphone platforms, providing protection from chemical threats and deadly toxic gases such as Carbon Monoxide, and enabling consumers to have more information and understanding of their air quality and overall health. Personnel at KWJ’s booth (#73402) will demonstrate several sensors in different wireless systems that will enable new gas monitoring capabilities for industrial applications and consumer health. The sensors can eventually become part of flexible, conformal systems that can be worn on the skin or integrated into clothing for seamless, wireless health monitoring.
