Improving the Ruggedness of Infrared Gas Sensors
Portable and handheld instruments can be subjected to a lot of physical abuses. Fixed gas sensing instruments will also be subject to structure borne vibrations and potentially shock during transport.
Axetris' solid-state IR sources are very rugged. They recently passed shock and vibration testing to DIN EN 60721-3-7 (IEC 721-3-7), a standard for handheld electronics.
