Hydrogen SensorSource: DCH Technology, Inc.
The sensor is small in size, located on a 14 millimeter-square microchip. A palladium nickel (PdNi) catalytic alloy is used to create a series of resistors and transistors that compose the sensor. The alloy's high sensitivity to hydrogen makes detection possible at concentrations well below 1% and produces accurate detection at high concentrations. Additional features include:
Hand held unit with integrated options
Remote data transmission
Audible and visual alarms
Graphical display/digital readout
Direct connect to microcomputer
LCD display noting the amount of hydrogen in the environment
Low battery indicators
Provision for output of data in a digital format to a PC using the DCH H2Tracker software
Provision for output as an analog signal
