A sensor technical seminar between ISweek and SST was successfully held on July 16th, 2018 in Zhongke Mansion. Paddy Shannon, the technical director of SST, and Sports Chen, the Manager of ISWeek, attended this seminar, in which the technology of fluorescent oxygen sensors was mainly introduced.
The seminar started with a technical illustration made by Paddy. He introduced SST`s innovative concept and products to ISWeek.
Found in 2002, SST is a solution provider who designs and manufactures series of sensors measuring level, gas, temperature and humidity, pressure, speed and position. SST has been supplying reliable sensors and controllers for over 10 years. The primary goal of SST is to deliver the required sensing and control solutions to our customers which exactly meet their technical and commercial sensor requirements. Where a specific solution is required, SST Sensing Ltd will identify the suitable technology and use this as a building block to provide a bespoke customer solution.
SST is the specialist of fluid and gas sensing technologies. Though sales of oxygen and level sensors make up its main profit, SST has been endeavoring to develop more market with its new products. There are various series of SST sensors for customers to choose, while its engineers are willing to provide comprehensive application and technical supports.
In this seminar, Director Shannon highly recommended the following fluorescent oxygen sensors:
LOX-02 LuminOx Fluorescence Optical Oxygen Sensor (O2 Sensor), Fluorescence–based optical technology,
Oxygen Measuring Range: 0-25% O2.
LOX-02-F LuminOx Flow-through Optical Oxygen Sensor, Luminescence-based optical technology, Contains no hazardous materials; RoHS & REACH compliant.
LOX-02-S LuminOx Sealed Optical Oxygen Sensor, Luminescence-based optical technology, Contains no hazardous materials; RoHS & REACH compliant.
Paddy Shannon, the technical director of SST explained the working principle and advantages of their products, and also answered some questions that were frequently asked by customers.
Working principle of fluorescent oxygen sensors:
The detection of such sensors is based on the ruthenium polymer coating on the dichroic mirror, which reflects the blue light from LED light source and filters orange fluorescence. Fluorescence of the special ruthenium compound stimulated by oxygen gets quenched, so that the strength of light is changed in relation to oxygen enrichment.
Advantages of fluorescent oxygen sensors:
1.Long service life of over 5 years
2. No lead contained and RoHS compliant
3. Resistant against ambient pressure change
4. Capability of working in low temperature of -30℃
5. Digital output, 3.3TTL level output and simple signal processing
As Director Shannon sees it, the cooperation between SST and ISWeek is a improving success, and it is for that ISWeek always abides to its commitment to every customer. Therefore, ISWeek will make more efforts to ensure that all customers are aware of their great importance. Under this major premise, SST and ISWeek will work together to provide sensors and solutions catering to every customers` requirements.
