NAP-523

Special Low-range compact Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S) Sensor

General Description:

The NAP-523 is an Electrochemical gas sensor with 3 electrodes for the detection of Hydrogen Sulphide (H2S).

The sensor has been specially designed to give a very high output signal, resulting a very low detection range of 0 to 0.5ppm, and a resolution (with high quality circuitry) of +/- 0.05ppm. The sensor is also insensitive to humidity changes and alcohol vapours, making it ideally suitable for measuring low levels of H2S on breath for health monitoring.

The Sensor can also be used in any application where very low Environmental levels of H2S need to be detected or monitored.
