NevadaNano has announced the 'MPS Mini', a miniaturised version of the highly popular MPS Flammable Gas Sensor. The new sensor is claimed to be the world’s most accurate hydrocarbon sensor in its class and removes the necessity for maintenance during its 10+year lifetime.


“We have extended our market-leading reliability, accuracy, and lifetime with enhanced algorithms which extends our market-leading position of detecting 19 of the most common combustible gases found in residential, commercial, and other general use environments,” said Ralph Whitten, president, and member of the board of directors, at NevadaNano. “This new product in a lower cost package specifically targets IoT and high-volume applications. This enables our customers to set new standards in connected gas sensors and helps companies create safer working environments in industrial, commercial and consumer applications.”


The newest addition to its MPS Product family, the sensor measures the thermodynamic properties of the air-gas mix and accurately reports 0-100% LEL across 19 flammable gases with no need for field calibration. This performance satisfies the demand for flexible sensor platforms in various non-industrial applications and makes it excellent for residential and commercial applications such as smart meters and IoT devices. In essence, the sensor produces safer environments for people and their surrounding communities.


Integrated, real-time measurements and built-in compensation for pressure, temperature, and humidity improve the accuracy of all the company's flammable gas sensors. Gas concentration readings are accurate over the complete environmental range, including rapid environmental transients, producing best-in-class accuracy. The device, as all of the series sensors, is essentially immune to drift, decay, or poison.
