FIS has developed a new Air Quality sensor which monitors the CO 2 concentration based on the semiconductor gas sensor technology: SP6- AQ7. This sensor uses a combination of La doped tin-dioxide sensor with an increased sensitivity to CO 2 and an un-doped sensing material for humidity compensation.
Each sensing material is formed on an alumina substrate of 2 mm square and 0.3 mm thickness. These elements are heated to approx. 300 ºC by applying 5V - 230 mW to the RuO 2 (ruthenium dioxide) thick film heater printed on the reverse side of substrate. These two elements are mounted on a sensor base and placed in a filter housing.
