O2 Sensor Working Principle : What is Partial Pressure of Oxygen and How Do You Calculate It?

The zirconium dioxide O2 sensor working principle measures partial pressure of oxygen in a gas a mixture of gases. This typically causes confusion amongst SST’s customers as most oxygen sensors on the market measure oxygen concentration. But, what is partial pressure? It is a question we are asked frequently when it comes to the O2... Read more

Innovative Sensor Technology Assists NASA with Vital Wearable CO2 Monitoring Equipment

By Siobhan Molloy, SST Sensing & Rachael Barton, GSS Within a self-contained system where humans are respiring, there will be a build up toxic CO2 levels over time. As a consequence, in any form of spacecraft where humans are present, effective mechanisms for removing CO2 and resupplying oxygen need to be implemented. However, operational necessities still dictate... Read more
