Gas sensors are widely used in many industries for gas concentration detection. They are commonly seen in oil refinery, chemical, medical, and transportation industries. In manufacturing businesses, gas detection plays a key role in determining combustion conditions and hazardous gas emissions while in environmental monitoring, it is prevalent to use gas sensors to identify pollution levels.
One of the most popular gas detection devices we use at home is the thermostat. It usually consists of temperature and humidity sensors. Temperature sensors are categorized into two basic types: Contact Temperature Sensor and Non-Contact Temperature Sensor. Contact Temperature Sensors requires physical contact with the detected object while the Non-Contact type doesn’t. The thermostat is categorized as being the contact sensor type. There are also four common types of temperature sensors including a thermistor, Resistive Temperature Device (RTD), thermocouple and Integrated Silicon Linear Sensor.
Measurements are more accurate for contact type sensors however the temperature range is not as wide as the non-contact type. Non-contact temperature sensors could sense temperature readings as high as hundreds of degrees Celsius. Nowadays, all types of sensors are widely used in all kinds of fields.
