Carbon Monoxide and Sensory Sensitivity -

· Carbon monoxide (CO) is the most common cause of toxic poisonings and deaths in America, and has been for over a century. CO also may be the most common cause of MCS, but it causes a very specific type of MCS that we call Multi-Sensory Sensitivity or MUSES Syndrome. MUSES Syndrome is caused only by CO poisoning and is characterized not just by hypersensitivity to …

Understanding Cross Sensitivities Can Help Keep Workers ...

· Ideally, a user would want a carbon monoxide (CO) sensor to only read carbon monoxide, but there are other gases that can generate readings on this sensor. This is just one example of many cross interferences. We can slow this reaction down with the use of filters on the sensors, but yet again, it does not eliminate the reaction. At this time, there is not a perfect technology that can filter ...

Understanding Cross Sensitivities Can Help to Keep Workers ...

· Cross sensitivities, also referred to as interfering gases, are gases that can cause the electrode inside the sensor to react even if the target gas is not present. Can this reaction be eliminated? In a perfect world, yes, but unfortunately, it is very difficult to develop an electrode that will not respond to anything other than the target gas. Ideally, a user would want a carbon monoxide (CO ...

Carbon Monoxide Alarm Cross Sensitivity – Hydrogen ...

· Carbon Monoxide Alarm Cross Sensitivity – Hydrogen. Here’s something different – below is a standard domestic carbon monoxide alarm, (I did a teardown of the same detector here ), but in this case it’s not detecting any carbon monoxide, but another gas in the surrounding atmosphere. We recently had an issue with these detectors on board ...

Cross sensitivity of toxic sensors: Chris investigates the ...

· Cross sensitivity is a sensor’s reac­tion to other gases which can “interfere” with how the sensor reacts. Exposing a sensor to a gas that is not the target gas can cause an undesirable effect; this may be a positive response, negative response or inhibition. Positive Response A positive response means that sensors respond to not just the target gas but to another gas as well. This ...

Water Vapor Cross-Sensitivity of Open Path H2O/CO2 Sensors ...

· Thus, the cross-sensitivity of the KNMI sensors may well be represented by the values relevant to the low humidity situation given in Table 2. As for the NOAA sensor, the windows and the small mirror are slightly heated due to internal heat dissipation; the larger mirror at the far end of the sensing head is unheated. We observed a 2°C self-heating of the main unit above ambient in still air ...

target gas is called its cross-sensitivity. Figure 2 shows the cross-sensitivity of one carbon monoxide sensor to other gases both with and without a filter and after the sensor has been allowed to age. Most gases like propane, butane, ammonia, and nitrogen dioxide have very little effect on the readings of this carbon monoxide sensor. However, it is very susceptible to interference from
