The MiniPID 2 10.0 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 10.0 eV gas sensor 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
  • 12 – month warranty (excluding the electrode stack)
  • Expected life > 5 years
