Gas Sensor Testbed

The gas sensor testbed allows the characterization of all type of gas sensors towards various target gases (e.g. volatile organic compounds – VOCs, etc.) in the relevant concentrations by using controlled gas mixtures at different temperature (T) and humidity (RH) levels

The gas sensor testbed allows the characterization of all type of gas sensors towards various target gases (e.g. volatile organic compounds – VOCs, etc. Permeation tubes for over 500 chemicals are available on the market) in the relevant concentrations (typical concentration of 10-100 ppm (2500 cc/min – 250 cc/min) by using controlled gas mixtures at different temperature (30-150°C – heat only) and humidity (10%-90% rH) levels.

To calibrate the gas sensor systems and to perform correlation measurements the gas sensor testbed includes the possibility to use classical sampling methods and standard analytical methods (in the lab or in the field).
