The oxygenius is a product development example of an oxygen analyzer handheld unit. The unit measures oxygen as a percentage. The unit allows for calibration; as well as, includes a data port for sampling oxygen percentage at selected trigger points and transferring data to a PC. Key features: Simple user interface Data port Auto shutdown Calibration Lightweight handheld unit
The most common application for oxygen sensors is to measure the exhaust gas concentration of oxygen for internal combustion engines in automobiles and other vehicles in order to calculate and, if required, dynamically adjust the air-fuel ratio so that catalytic converters can work optimally, and also determine whether a catalytic converter is performing properly or not. Divers also use a similar device to measure the partial pressure of oxygen in their breathing gas...
Scientists use oxygen sensors to measure respiration or production of oxygen and use a different approach. Oxygen sensors are used in oxygen analyzers which find a lot of use in medical applications such as anaesthesia monitors, respirators and oxygen concentrators.
Oxygen sensors are also used in hypoxic air fire prevention systems to monitor continuously the oxygen concentration inside the protected volumes.
