Sensor Specifications and Cross-Sensitivities

A CO sensor used to measure 100-1,000 ppm hydrogen should be calibrated with 1,000 ppm hydrogen gas. Calibration Flow Rate: Recommended calibration gas flow rate. Cross-Sensitivity: Every sensor has some cross-sensitivity, where the sensor responds to other gases that are not filtered out and can react on the electrode. It is very important to be aware of potentially cross-sensitive compounds ...

Gas sensor cross sensitivity - Blackline Safety

What gas combinations produce noticeable cross sensitivity? Almost all gases cause some cross sensitivity, but our devices are designed to filter out many of the most commonly occurring ones. CO and H₂ is a combination that causes noticeable changes in readings. When H₂ is applied to the CO sensor, the CO sensor reading will increase ...

How to select the right CO sensors for your application ...

2014-09-03· If 100 ppm of H2 were exposed to a CO sensor that was neither a CO/H2 low nor CO/H2 null type sensor, the sensor would interpret the 100 ppm of H2 as 60 ppm of CO based on the CO sensor’s cross-sensitivity to H2. Steel mills and power plants are examples of facilities in which a CO/H2 low or CO/H2 null sensor is commonly used.

High temperature CO2 sensing and its cross-sensitivity ...

2019-12-12· But no reports are available which show SAW based CO 2 gas sensor operating at a high-temperature (>350 °C) and address the cross-sensitivity towards other toxic gases. In the present work, CO 2 sensing characteristics and its cross-sensitive behavior for CO and H 2 gas have been studied using calcium doped zinc oxide (Ca_ZnO) thin film coated langasite based SAW sensor.

The challenges with electrochemical NO2 sensors in outdoor ...

2018-07-23· A nitrogen dioxide (NO 2) sensor would only detect NO 2 and a carbon monoxide (CO) sensor would only detect CO and so on. While electrochemical sensors are designed to be as specific as possible, most will respond in some manner to gasses other than the target gas. This is called “cross-sensitivity” and is a result of the interfering gas also reacting on the sensor electrode. In some cases ...

Figure 2 shows the cross-sensitivity of one carbon monoxide sensor to other gases both with and without a filter and after the sensor has been allowed to age. Most gases like propane, butane, ammonia, and nitrogen dioxide have very little effect on the readings of this carbon monoxide sensor. However, it is very susceptible to interference from gases like isobutene, ethylene oxide, hydrogen ...

The graph below reflects moderately elevated levels of carbon monoxide throughout the weekend of 4-11-2014 thru 4-14-2014. Based on the additional information gathered during hydrogen gas testing and other periods of data-logging it is assumed that these levels are not actually carbon monoxide, but rather cross-sensitivity of hydrogen gas.

Does the CO sensor have a cross-sensitivity to H2?

The electrochemical CO sensors used in the majority of our products do have a cross-sensitivity to elemental hydrogen (H 2) gas, with the precise degree of cross-sensitivity depending on the model in those applications where the CO monitoring is necessary in the presence of H2, models with CO-H sensor would be the best option.
