Product Introduction

MC885/ MC885C Catalytic Flammable Gas Sensor

Principle Introduction:
Strong First Electronics, MC885 adopts catalytic combustion principle, and detects natural gas CH4, LPG C3H8, CO and alkanes.
MC885/ MC885C adopts catalytic combustion principle, and its two arms of electric bridge consists of a test element and a compensate element. The resistance of the test element rises once it meets the combustible gases, in the same time, the output voltage of the bridge changes and the voltage variation rises in direct proportion to the gas concentration. The compensate element, as a conference, has the function of compensating temperature and humidity.
Applications :
It is widely used in industrial occasion to detect the concentration of natural gas, LPG, CO and alkanes.
It is also used in combustible gas leakage alarm system, combustible gas detector and gas concentration meter and so on.
