SGX Sensortech Metal Oxide Sensors

SGX has a proprietary MOS technology utilizing state of the art MEMS technology, combining a specialized nano-particle sensing layer with a patented poly-silicon heater. This unique design creates a highly sensitive and responsive semiconductor sensor, manufactured on an automotive production line for outstanding quality and performance. These sensors are easily capable to detect and measure combustible and pollution gasses in parts per billion (PPB) and are suitable for many environmental, automotive and industrial applications worldwide.

SGX Sensortech, a division of Amphenol Advanced Sensors, offer a complete line of metal oxide sensor, the MiCs Series. The basic principle behind the MiCs line of sensors is that the resistance of the detecting layer in sensor changes in the presence of the target gases. For oxidizing gases such as nitrogen dioxide the resistance will increase; for reducing gases such as carbon monoxide or VOC’s the resistance will go down.

This Product Family Includes:
MiCS-2714 SMD Nitrogen Dioxide (oxidizing gas)
MiCS-4514 SMD Dual Sensor, Carbon Monoxide/Nitrogen Dioxide (oxidizing and Reducing gases)
MiCS-5524 SMD Carbon Monoxide (Reducing gases)
MiCS-5914 SMD Ammonia Sensor
MiCS-6814 SMD Triple sensor, Carbon Monoxide, Nitrogen Dioxide and Ammonia
MiCS-VZ-89TE Integrated Dual Sensor for IAQ, VoC and CO2
Main Features of These Sensors Offer:
• Low heater current • Wide detection range
• High Sensitivity • Available in SMD Packages
• High resistance to shocks and vibrations • Miniature dimensions
• Long life expectancy • Has the benefit of a patented low power heater design
• Very fast thermal response Electrostatic discharge protected • Suitable for measurement or alarm warning applications.
