MiniPID 2 PID sensor

0-100 ppm range, 0.1 ppm sensitivity, 11.7 eV lamp

Designed for OEMs, we manufacture and supply more photoionisation detection (PID) sensors than any other company in the worldwith our sensor technology trusted by major gas detection manufacturers, globally.

Our patented Fence Electrode Technology is proven to resist humidity and contamination, giving you outstanding results when detecting volatile organic compounds (VOCs) within the most challenging environments.

MiniPID 2 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. 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.

MiniPID 2 detection range

PPM MiniPID 2: range 0 – 100 ppm with 0.1 ppm sensitivity
This 11.7 variant has a reasonably wide range and sensitivity but has the advantage of being able to detect gases with ionisation potentials up to 11.7 eV. This sensor is configured specifically for dynamic response to VOCs at elevated concentrations allowing for greater accuracy and repeatability.
