VANCOUVER, April 19 /CNW/ - Neodym Technologies Inc. is pleased to
announce the availability of ProtiSen(TM), a hydrogen sensor intended for gas
safety monitoring in hydrogen powered vehicles and in power generation
equipment such as fuel cells and battery charging systems.
ProtiSen(TM) monitors perform linear sensing of hydrogen in air from 0 to
40,000 ppm (4% volume in air) with 200 ppm resolution and fast
start-up/response time. The environmental operating range is -40 to +80
degrees Celsius and 0 to 99% R.H. The devices can be powered from 5 to 24VDC
and consume about 750mW. Output signal options include 0-3VDC proportional,
voltage-encoded state (normal, warning, alarm, fault), TTL, and open drain (2A
at 60V). The devices are compatible with Neodym's PK-Port(TM) single-wire
digital signaling protocol for PC-based real time monitoring and data logging.
ProtiSen(TM) monitors employ catalytic sensing elements with in-line VOC
filters and feature good long-term stability, increased tolerance of
silicone-based contaminants, and immunity from sensor damage in the event of
hydrogen overexposure from massive gas leaks or during aggressive testing.
ProtiSen(TM) monitors are housed in anodized aluminum enclosures, measure
51mm by 51mm by 19mm, and weigh about 50g. The devices are manufactured in
Canada by Neodym and cost approximately USD150. Ordering information and
specifications are available at Neodym's website: www.neodymsystems.com.
