MIPEX-02 is a fully digital, microchip-based NDIR optical gas sensor of an industry-standard size relying on a proprietary LED technology and offering uniquely low power consumption (under 3 mW). Designed for ultimate performance and application in the most hazardous and toxic environments, this sensor demonstrates remarkable reliability, accuracy of measurement and reaction to growing gas concentration.
MIPEX-02 methane and hydrocarbons sensors can be used in virtually any type of gas analysis devices and come in a variety of configurations tailored to the needs of major customer groups and application scenarios. Featuring a microcontroller and a modern digital interface, the sensors are capable of performing self-diagnostics for higher fault tolerance and applying special algorithms to ensure a linearized output signal. The same microcontroller, coupled with the photo detector, patented LED emitter and signal processing algorithms, makes for fast gas detection and protection from temperature fluctuations.
