Model PIM XCA - Photoionization Detector Module
The photoionization detector module PIM XCA is an OEM module to detect volatile organic compounds with an ionization potential < 10.6eV. With its electronics and microcontroller as well as with the combined humidity/temperature sensor, it provides a flexible and easy to use adaptation into the target measurement system. The module comes with a built in linearization and temperature/humidity compensation and a full digital interface.
- extended measuring range 0 … 2,000 ppm (isobutylene)
- high performance PID lamp
- temperature- and humidity compensation
- single power supply
- signal processing
- UART TTL interface for measurement and configuration
The PIM XCA is using a hollow cathode lamp with 10.6 eV and Ceramic Discharge Channel as ionization source. This lamp provides a high stable UV output with an life time of 8,000 hours ( typical up to 15,000 hours and more ).
The digitale interface provides the option for reading the measurement values and different status information as well as calibration and configuration.
