Abstract

We present an optical absorption infrared sensor for monitoring of lower explosive limit of gases and vapors containing flammable hydrocarbon compounds, and description of sensor design and characteristics. The sensor is capable of monitoring up to 30 components and can be interfaced with an external device using MODBUS RTU Protocol. Our design opens up wide opportunities for the indoor and outdoor gas monitoring applications at the petrochemical and oil processing industries and hazardous industrial facilities.
