SenseAir Uses Zilog Microcontroller on Newest CO2 Sensor


Zilog, a trusted supplier of application-specific, embedded microcontroller (MCU) system-on-chip (SoC) solutions for industrial, power management and consumer applications, today announced that its Z8F082A MCU has been selected as the core microcontroller by SenseAir® for their newest Fast Response CO2 Sensor Module.

Zilog is the "solution of choice" by SenseAir®, which is using the Z8F082A microcontroller's high resolution sigma/delta A/D converter to read and convert the signals from their infrared sensor and then processing SenseAir's patented filtering and measurement algorithms to produce the final gas measurement from their system. 

The SenseAir CO2 Engine® K30 FR can be used in a wide range of applications in which fast changes must be detected, such as detecting gas leakage when used in the food and pharmaceuticals packaging industries.

Zilog and SenseAir have been working closely together on a revolutionary new design, keeping in step with SenseAir's leadership position in the CO2 Sensor Markets.

"SenseAir has established a unique close cooperation with our customers, which helps them create optimized sensor solutions adjusted to the many different technical and geographical markets worldwide. SenseAir has a deep commitment to continuous research and development work in order to maintain our position as a world-leading company within the gas analyzing business," said Arvid Egeland, SenseAir's Managing Director.
