Baseline-MOCON, Inc. has released a new 10.0Ev lamp energy level for its piD-TECH® plus photoionisation sensor line.
The new lamp promises users increased specificity when detecting the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOC) such as benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene (BTEX).
The new lamp provides improved BTEX compound analysis over previously available energies. It boasts increased specificity over the 10.6 eV and increased sensitivity over the 9.6 eV options.
According to Mocon, the new sensors are suited to instrumentation manufacturers who want to add state-of-the-art, low-level VOC detection to their portable or stationary monitors. The piD-TECH® plus line aims to set a new standard by being able to measure concentrations lower than previously possible with other comparably-sized sensors.
By offering three lamp energy levels, the piD-TECH® plus now offers users a choice of selectivity and discrimination. Improvements in the detector cell production process also results in more robust cell performance characteristics.
Baseline-MOCON has engineered extremely low electrical entity parameters into the piD-TECH® plus series which enable operation in hazardous environments. As a result, the entire line has passed Underwriter’s Laboratories ‘certified component’ requirements. This reduces the steps manufacturers have to take to obtain an ‘intrinsically-safe’ certification rating for instruments using piD-TECH® plus sensors. Further, Baseline-MOCON is ISO 9001:2000 certified.
