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 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 sensor working... 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
