LuminOx Fluorescence Optical Oxygen Sensor (O2 Sensor) - LOX-02

LuminOx Fluorescence Optical Oxygen Sensor (O2 Sensor)

LOX-02 LuminOx Fluorescence Optical Oxygen Sensor (O2 Sensor) description

The LuminOx Family is a range of factory calibrated optical sensors which measure ambient O2 levels using the principle of fluorescence quenching by oxygen.

Our unique patented process allows us to produce an oxygen sensor that benefits from low power, traditionally associated with electrochemical sensing devices, while providing a much longer lifetime due to the non-depleting sensing principle.

LuminOx unlike other sensor technologies is stable and robust, it is RoHS compliant as it does not contain lead or any other hazardous materials and has negligible cross sensitivity.

LuminOx can be purchased as a single optical sensor, or as part as an evaluation kit which includes the LuminOx Sensor Evaluation Interface Board, which was designed to allow customers to easily evaluate the sensor with minimum effort or design work.

LuminOx Optical Oxygen Sensor Evaluation Interface Board

LOX-EVB LuminOx Optical Oxygen Sensor Evaluation Interface Board GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The LuminOx Sensor family is a range of factory calibrated oxygen sensors which measure ambient ppO₂ levels using the principle of fluorescence quenching by oxygen.
The LuminOx Evaluation interface Board has been designed to allow customers to quickly and easily evaluate the sensor with the minimum of effort or design work
The LuminOx Evaluation Kit simultaneously provides three outputs;
• RS232 (serial interface voltage levels)
• RS485 (Modbus RTU) port allows multiple sensors to be addressed on a bus
• 0-5V Analogue output for basic measurements of oxygen only

LOX-EVB LuminOx Optical Oxygen Sensor Evaluation Interface Board BENEFITS
• Converts the LuminOx TTL level 
• RS232 output into 3 standard industrial outputs
• Auto detects ppO2 or O2% variants of LuminOx Sensor.

The LuminOx range has been designed as an alternative to electrochemical sensors but with the benefits of RoHS compliance, long life and complete environmental compensation built-in.

The sensor is available with and without a built-in barometric pressure sensor. LuminOx’s native measurement is partial oxygen p ressure (ppO2) in mbar. By incorporating a barometric pressure sensor, LuminOx is able to measure O2 vol. % in addition to ppO2

Unlike electrochemical sensors, LuminOx requires no additional signal conditioning circuitry and connects directly to the customers microcontroller via 3.3V-level RS232 link. This reduces costs and simplifies system design.
