Sensitive, Customizable Kit Detecting Volatile Organic Compounds Scheduled to Debut at Sensor + Test 2012

A growing number of studies suggest that some VOCs are potentially harmful to your health. While there are a few mixed gas duct sensors on the market, this is the first one with the ability to detect VOCs calibrated to CO2-equivalents.

AppliedSensor, a designer and manufacturer of chemical sensor components, will introduce its intelligent air quality (iAQ) Duct Kit enabling the integration of a complete air duct sensor into a demand-controlled ventilation (DCV) system. The kit will be marketed to OEMs and exhibited at Sensor + Test 2012, May 22-24 in Nürnberg, Germany in Hall 12, Stand 331. The trade fair will host nearly 600 exhibitors and more than 8,000 attendees from approximately 30 nations.

AppliedSensor’s new iAQ-Duct Kit includes an iAQ-2000 controller board, a ready-made connection cable, and an MOS sensor that uses micro-electronic mechanical systems (MEMS) metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) sensing technology to detect and respond to a broad range of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in surrounding air. The sensor is assembled on a standard TO-39 header with a cap and protective diffusion membrane and is designed for probe tip integration. The controller board can be located in outside housing and connected to the sensor with the customized cable.

“A growing number of studies suggest that some VOCs are potentially harmful to your health. While there are a few mixed gas duct sensors on the market, this is the first one with the ability to detect VOCs calibrated to CO2-equivalents,” said AppliedSensor GmbH Director of Marketing and Sales Heiko Ulmer. “Not only is the iAQ-Duct Kit conveniently modular, it can be used in a variety of energy-saving HVAC applications, like DCV.”

Sensor + Test is a leading international forum focused on the topics of sensors, measurement and testing technologies. Free tickets for the trade fair are available at:
