General Information on N2O – Nitrous oxide
Nitrous oxide (N2O), commonly known by the trivial name laughing gas, is a colorless gas from the group of nitrogen oxides. In literature, nitrous oxide is also referred to as nitrogen oxydul. Laughing gas is best known as an inhalation anesthetic. N2O is also produced in small quantities during the combustion of fossil fuels.
Gas Sensors for the Detection of N2O
RITTER »MultiGas« Combined Modules NDIR + NDUV
RITTER »MultiGas« Modules can also be a combination of both NDIR sensors and NDUV sensors on a common board. With this unit, up to 3 gas components can be measured simultaneously. The basic electronics can supply IR and UV radiation sources with different frequencies for 0 Hz (DC) to 100 Hz (AC). This system is an ideal tool for detecting multi-component gas at low ppm levels.
Please note: For technical and chemical reasons, not every combination of gases/measuring ranges can be analyzed/measured in a single or combined RITTER »MultiGas« module. As this is a rather complex topic, please do not hesitate to contact one of our gas experts first.
