GasCar Laser

High accuracy – Very fast reaction time

  • Selective measurement of Methane, no cross sensitivity on diesel or gasoline engine exhaust, LPG, propane, butane and other hydro carbons as occur in oil or gasoline laugh
  • High accuracy in a wide measurement range of 1 to more than 40.000 ppm
  • No adjustment of the sensor system is necessary due to the long time stability and accuracy of the laser sensor.
  • Very fast reaction time of 2 to 3 seconds; reading after the gas was sucked into the suction bar
  • Automatic cleaning of the suction system by air purging with compressed air
  • Automatic functional system test controlled by the control unit

A major factor in the detection of gas is the right balance between the flow of the suction pump and driving speed of the gas detection vehicle. At high pump flow and low speed, low gas concentrations are diluted unnecessary and the alert threshold is not reached eventually. If the suction flow at a higher speed however is too low, the gas amount drawn from a limited gas expansion can be too small and also lead to levels below the alert level.

For this reason, the pump flow of the Esders GasCar system is controlled proportional to the driving speed.
