What are Gas Sensors?
The devices used to detect the presence of gases in the environment are called gas sensors
. These sensors are used to detect gases in air or water in various commercial, domestic and industrial applications. Thanks to the chemical sensors in these sensors, they produce an electrical signal as a result of their interaction with gases, this signal is used to measure the gas concentration.
can be customized to detect multiple different gases and are open to the use of different technologies for gas identification. With the technology available, most gas sensors have features such as fast response time, low power consumption and high sensitivity. In addition, most of these products are manufactured from environmentally friendly materials and in compliance with international standards such as RoHS and CE.
What are the Types of Gas Sensors?
There are customized gas sensors for different applications. In general, various technologies are used in gas sensors
, including electrochemical, catalytic or optical sensors
These sensors are used in oil platforms, mines, homes and industrial plants
These sensors can be listed as follows in terms of their types:
: This type of sensor is used for the detection of flammable gases. They detect by measuring the emission values of the gas and are characterized by low power consumption and high sensitivity.
: These sensors are manufactured for the detection of explosive gases. They switch to alarm mode in case of explosion or rapid combustion. They are used as broadcasts in industrial plants.
: It is the preferred sensor for the detection of gases such as toxic gases, hydrogen, carbon monoxide and ammonia. these sensors have features such as fast response time, high sensitivity and long life guarantee.
Collaboratively Developed sensors
: Customized gas sensors
are produced for some of our industrial customers. These sensors are designed entirely according to the needs of our customers and are specially manufactured to detect a specific gas
What are the Usage Areas of Gas Sensors?
These sensors, which can be used in various fields, are ideal for applications such as gas leak detection, ventilation fire prevention, ventilation system control and security systems
General usage areas are as follows; It is used in areas such as mines, houses, oil platforms, industrial facilities and vehicles
It can also be used for the detection of hazardous gases such as methane, propane, hydrogen, carbon monoxide in homes, workplaces and places where the service sector is applied.

Frequently Asked Questions about Gas Sensors
How to ensure correct placement for gas sensors?
To ensure that measurements are reliable and accurate, they need to be correctly placed where ventilation is possible and near potential sources.
How are gas sensors calibrated and how often should it be done?
These sensors must be calibrated and periodically maintained according to the standards specified by the manufacturers.
How do environmental factors affect the measurement results of Gas Sensors?
Temperature, humidity, air pressure and the presence of other gases in the environment can also affect the measurement results of these sensors.
