ION Science, leading innovator in Photoionisation Detection (PID) sensing technology, is thrilled to announce they will be showcasing their PID and PM sensor portfolios at Sensor + Test 2024 – the premier international trade fair for sensor, measurement, and testing technology.

Visitors to the ION Science stand (1-300) at Sensor + Test 2024 in Nuremberg, Germany, will have the exclusive opportunity to see the interactive demonstration of the PID sensor offering. ION Science will also be showcasing their latest MiniPID variant: the MiniPID 2 PPB XF. Engineered with patented Dutch weave technology, the MiniPID 2 PPB XF VOC gas sensor ensures resilience against various environmental factors for extended periods, allowing heightened reliability with reduced maintenance requirements, ensuring uninterrupted operations on site.
“The requirement for accurate and reliable air quality monitoring solutions is as critical as it has ever been,” explains Peter Morris, Head of Sensors at ION Science Ltd. “Poor air quality can have significant adverse effects on human health.

Extensive research indicates that prolonged exposure to both Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Particulate Matter (PM) significantly elevates the risk of morbidity and mortality associated with cardiovascular and respiratory illnesses.

Many air pollutants also harm the environment, including ecosystems, wildlife, and vegetation. Monitoring air quality allows us to identify pollutants, take steps to mitigate their impact on public health, and develop strategies for environmental conservation and protection.”

Peter Morris, Head of Sensors at ION Science Ltd, explains that:


“The designers of Gas Detection Instrumentation, Systems and Process Control Equipment will already know ION Science as a manufacturer of the market’s best PID sensors. However, they will be delighted to learn that the Next-PM high-performance Particulate Matter sensor, is now also available and will feature prominently on our stand”.

“When customers integrate our sensors into their equipment, they know that having ‘ION inside’ enhances both their performance capability and reliability which builds trust in their brand. We, therefore, look forward to welcoming all, covering Developers, Designers, Engineers, Technicians and Product Managers to speak with us at the Sensor + Test show, so that we can explain the benefits of the unique patented technology behind the performance superiorities that ION sensors deliver.”

Peter continues:

“We encourage anyone with an interest in developing a monitoring solution for VOCs, to view the gas response table. This document includes the response factors for over 900+ VOCs, as well as a small number of inorganic gases such as hydrogen sulphide, so it’s really helpful in deciding which PID variant is most appropriate to the OEM application or need.”

With global regulatory requirements becoming stricter, air quality monitoring systems must comply with relevant regulations. ION Science’s Sensor Development Kit (SDK) offers a cost-effective and efficient solution for testing and integrating PID sensors into various applications.
MiniPID Sensors respond to a broad range of VOCs and a few inorganic gaseous, view the gas response table to see the full list.
Equipped with a sensor PCB for easy pin breakout, it simplifies power supply to PID sensors and facilitates reading of analogue output signals. Paired with an integration PCB, MiniPID 2 integration becomes effortless, featuring 4-20 mA input and output, Modbus RS485 communication, and customisable relay switching. The integration PCB can be tailored using a bespoke SDK MS Windows application. These features streamline integration, leading to quicker time-to-market and reduced R&D costs for customers.
ION Science will also have the renowned NextPM particulate matter sensor on display. NextPM provides real-time PM1, PM2.5, and PM10 measurements in µg/m3 and pcs/L. NextPM features patented air flow control technology, providing 10,000 hours of monitoring without maintenance, even in environments with high pollution and humidity levels.
