In this interview, AZoSensors talks to Andrew Cumming of SST Sensing about the differences, and respective benefits, between electrochemical oxygen sensing technology and non-depleting oxygen sensor technology.
LuminOx optical gaseous oxygen sensors provide significant benefits over electrochemical sensors due to their insensitivity to environmental factors such as pressure and temperature. LuminOx is a completely solid state sensor and contains no lead or liquid electrolytes. It is therefore 100% RoHS compliant. It also has virtually no cross sensitivity, allowing it to be used in applications where other technologies are unreliable due to the particular mix of gases present.
