The XEN-5320 is an intelligent thermal conductivity sensor. The sensor determines the gas composition by measuring the temperature elevation of a micro machined heater element. For each binary gas mixture the ratio of temperature increase to heating power is dependent on the mix ratio. For enhanced accuracy, the correction is made for ambient temperature and humidity. Applications include hydrogen and helium gas experimentation, detection of gas dispersion rates in jets and plumes and binary gas composition measurement.
Examples of gasses which can be measured with the XEN-5320 sensor:
Hydrogen, Helium, Carbon Dioxide, Sulfur Dioxide, Methane and Neon.
