Product Introduction

4-Series NH3-5000L Sensor
Datasheet download
Product Description

Rather than the traditional depleting Ammonia sensors, this is a non-depleting and long-life Ammonia sensor for the measurement of Ammonia concentration in gas phase. It can be used as a pin-to-pin replacement for the standard 4-series electrochemical Ammonia sensors made by other manufacturers.

Output signals from the sensor pins are different. Inappropriate use of the pins in product design will affect the sensor functionality. Exposure to high concentrations of solvent vapors should be avoided under any condition. Mechanical overstress may cause deformation or cracks of the plastic enclosure of the sensor. If the sensor is used in extreme environmental conditions, please contact us for more details.

Safety Note

This sensor is designed to be used in certain instruments for life critical applications. To ensure the sensor functions per its specifications inside the instrument, it is required to read the instrument user's guide carefully and comply with the calibration procedures by using certified target calibration gas before each use. Failure to do so may cause serious injury and fatality. Please do not open the sensor plastic enclosure because the electrolyte and other chemicals stored inside are harmful.

It is highly recommended for customers to validate the sensor performance using this document as a reference for their product designs or applications.
