The MiniPID 2 11.7 eV gas sensor is a simple plug-and-play sensor able to deliver a dynamic and dependable response to thousands of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) across many diverse applications.

The sensor is designed for both diffusive and in-line pumped sampling, delivering an exceptional response time and clear down. The MiniPID 2 incorporates lamps of exceptional brightness and stability enabling detection of less volatile and less readily sensed compounds reliably, over an extended period of time.

  • Humidity resistance
  • Anti contamination design
  • Removable, pneumatically sealed sensing electrode stack

Key Features

  • Series 4 / A
  • 3 – month warranty (excluding the electrode stack)
  • 3 months serviceable burn time
