Case Study: Active sensor feeding with micropumps and CO2 sensor
We are always on the lookout for more applications for microfluidic systems and ways our mp6 micropump can improve processes. One of these applications is the use of a CO2 sensor. We wrote a case study to give you a more detailed insight into how a CO2 sensor works in a microfluidic environment.
Together with the request for higher safety and efficiency in industrial processes, the use of sensors increases continuously. Key is to generate stable and defined measurement values in these processes. That is why the environmental conditions of the sensor need to be kept at a constant level. This especially applies to feeding the sensor with an analyte fluid. Besides a faster response to changing analyte properties, a lowered target concentration at the point of measurement can be balanced as applied for catalytic sensors for example.
We have a multitude of videos about different sensors on our YouTube channel. Check them out!
This video directly shows the use of a CO2 sensor to determine the air quality in one of our office rooms. Thanks to active sensor feeding, this system accurately and quickly measures the CO2 concentration in the room.
