IR Microsystems presents gas sensors based on laser diodes
COMPAMED 2008, Düsseldorf, Germany – November 19th-21st
Lausanne/Switzerland based ®IR Microsystems, subsidiary of Leister Process Technologies, presents a range of compact gas sensors based on telecom-type tunable laser diodes. The innovative sensors are targeted toward applications in medical technology, industrial safety, selected process control, and others. Our products offer exceptional advantages compared to current gas sensor technologies, notably in terms of fast response time, functional safety, ruggedness and low cost-over-time.
The microLGD gas sensors are offered to OEM customers as stand-alone systems or sub-mounts for the continuous monitoring of gases like, O2, CO2, H2O, NH3, and others.
IR Microsystems’ patented measurement principle is based on Tunable Diode Laser Spectrometry (TDLS) and uses a novel, reference channel-free measurement concept, allowing for simpler, compact systems. The sensor comprises a laser diode measurement head and a microprocessor-driven read-out module with digital and analog data outputs for industry-standard connectivity (4-20 mA, RS485 or RS232).
Applications in medical technology using fast main- & side-stream monitoring of O2, CO2 and r.H. may include:
- Pulmonary diagnostics
- Metabolic diagnostics, total parenteral nutrition (TPN) optimization for
cost-reduction in critical care
- Oxygen monitoring in anesthesia gas regulation & monitoring
