US-based gas sensor manufacturer NevadaNano has released a compact version of its popular Molecular Property Spectrometer (MPS) Flammable Gas Sensor.

Focusing on reliability and accuracy, NevadaNano claims that the use of ‘enhanced algorithms’ will extend the lifetime of the new MPS Mini and that the need for maintenance will be eliminated during the products’ 10+ year lifetime.

Debuting at the ongoing Sensors Converge show, the sensor measures the thermodynamic properties of the air-gas mix.

The company states that by accurately reporting 0-100% lower explosive limit (LEL) across 19 flammable gases without the need for field calibration the sensor is ideally suited for commercial applications such as smart meters and Internet of Things (IoT) devices.

“This enables our customers to set new standards in connected gas sensors and helps companies create safer working environments in industrial, commercial and consumer applications,“ said Ralph Whitter, President, Member of the Board of Directors, NevadaNano.

The Sensors Converge exhibition runs until the end of today (September 23rd) and is being held in San Jose, California.
