Mouser Electronics and Amphenol SGX Sensortech Sign Global Agreement to Distribute Gas Sensors

Mouser Electronics and Amphenol SGX Sensortech Sign Global Agreement to Distribute Gas Sensors


June 13, 2017Mouser Electronics, Inc., the authorized global distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, announces a global distribution agreement with Amphenol SGX Sensortech, a market leader in innovative sensor and detector devices. Through the agreement, Mouser will add SGX Sensortech’s robust environmental sensors to its sensor linecard.

The Amphenol SGX Sensortech product line available at Mouser Electronics includes four series of gas sensors. The MiCS-VZ-89TE indoor air quality sensor combines state-of-the-art MOS sensor technology with intelligent detection algorithms to monitor total volatile organic compounds (tVOCs) and CO2 equivalent variations in confined spaces, such as rooms or vehicle cabins. The Integrated IR (INIR) devices are user-friendly digital gas sensors that use the latest SGX Sensortech infrared (IR) technology. The triple-range sensors, available for sensing either CO2 or methane gas, provide temperature-compensated data through both digital and analog outputs.


SGX Sensortech’s IR gas sensors are available in three series: IR1xxx/IR2xxx, IRx5TT, and IR600. IR1xxx and IR2xxx devices are compact, low-power, robust gas diffusion sensors that use proven Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) methods for detecting CO2 and many hydrocarbon gases in hazardous environments and mining applications. The IR15TT (and the humidity-optimized IR15TT-M) each offer two active channels to sense CO2, methane and other hydrocarbons simultaneously while running on the power equivalent of only one sensor. The IR25TT sensor is identical to the IR15TT except that it is designed specifically for detecting methane gas in mining environments. The IR600 Series heads are ATEX- and CSA-certified and meet FM standards. The temperature-compensated sensors include an embedded preamplifier and buffer to amplify the channel outputs before linking into the transmitter electronics.


The VQ Series combustible gas sensors (or pellistors) are available in catalytic — that is, detecting combustible gases in concentrations that are approaching the explosive range — and thermal conductivity — detecting gasses with lower weight than that of air, such as hydrogen and helium — options. Engineers can choose from metric, 0.5-inch, and 0.75-inch head units that detect a range of gasses, including CO2, ammonia, broad hydrocarbons, and high hydrocarbons. Other options include poison resistance, low voltage, and shock resistance.
