The AS-MLV-P2 high-performance gas sensor from ams is highly sensitive to Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs), providing for effective monitoring of indoor air quality. Accurate, small and power-efficient, the AS-MLV-P2 produces a precisely varying resistance in response to changes in ambient levels of pollutants commonly found in indoor environments.
The superior performance of the AS-MLV-P2 is due to a combination of thin-film, thick-film and other patent-pending proprietary technologies implemented by ams. The heater and inter-digital electrode structures are placed on a 1μm silicon nitride membrane, helping the sensor to offer very low power consumption.
The AS-MLV-P2 measures ambient concentrations of a broad range of reducing gases associated with bad air quality, such as alcohols, aldehydes, ketones, organic acids, amines, and aliphatic and aromatic hydrocarbons, which can be harmful to human and animal health at high levels.
ams’ proven AS-MLV-P2 provides a direct measurement of the concentration of pollutants, giving the user helpful information on which they can act to maintain and improve air quality. Available in a surface-mount package, it provides this capability in a small footprint and offers long-term stable operation, while typically only consuming a low power rate of 34mW in continuous operation.
