Technological features of the FLOWEVO PLUS

NDIR technology is at the heart of the FLOWEVO PLUS and plays a central role in its operation and performance. It uses infrared light to identify and measure specific gas components based on their characteristic absorption patterns in the infrared spectrum. By analyzing the infrared light absorbed by the gases, the sensor enables precise determinations of gas composition.

This method is highly valued in gas sensor technology because it is particularly accurate and reliable. It detects even minimal gas concentrations, which is crucial for many industrial and environmental applications. smartGAS has further developed and optimized the NDIR technology in the FLOWEVO PLUS to meet the growing and changing requirements of modern gas sensor technology.

Detailed functions of the FLOWEVO PLUS

The FLOWEVO PLUS is characterized by several highly developed functions that make it an important component in gas sensor technology. Here is a closer look:

Precise temperature control
The FLOWEVO PLUS has a precise temperature controller that controls the heating of the measuring cuvette with an accuracy of ±0.3 Kelvin. This precise control is crucial to ensure accurate measurements under fluctuating ambient temperatures.

Temperature fluctuations can distort the measurement results by changing the physical properties of the gas. By stabilizing the temperature in the cuvette, the FLOWEVO PLUS ensures consistent and reliable measurement results.

Automatic pressure compensation
Another key element of the FLOWEVO PLUS is the automatic pressure compensation. The built-in pressure sensor measures the internal pressure of the cuvette and automatically adjusts the measurement result to correct possible errors caused by changing gas flow.

This function is particularly important as different pressure variations affect the density of the gas and can therefore impair the accuracy of the gas measurement. The automatic adjustment of the measured values to the current pressure conditions ensures high accuracy and reliability of the gas measurements.

Noise reduction
To improve the sensitivity of the sensor, the FLOWEVO PLUS uses advanced mathematical filters that reduce noise to a minimum, more precisely to less than ±0.075% of full scale (FS). This low noise is crucial as it allows even the lowest gas concentrations to be reliably detected without affecting the measurement signal.

Fast T90 time
The sensor's filters are optimized so that the T90 time - the time it takes the sensor to detect 90% of a change in gas concentration - is extremely short, typically less than 3 seconds. This fast response time is particularly advantageous for dynamic measurement situations where rapid changes in gas concentration occur.

High readout frequency
With an impressive readout frequency of up to 10 Hz, the FLOWEVO PLUS is ideal for applications that require fast response and data updating. This high frequency makes the sensor particularly effective for process control in industrial environments where conditions can change rapidly and quick decisions based on accurate and up-to-date data are required.
