PPM VOC Gas Sensor: MiniPID 2

OEM Gas Sensor with State of the Art Sensing Technology

The ION MiniPID 2 PPM VOC Gas Sensor was developed for detecting VOCs over the most extensive dynamic range on the market without undermining performance. What’s more, it is the only PID sensor with a lamp out diagnostic.


The MiniPID 2 PPM VOC Gas Sensor – MiniPID 2 is a streamlined plug-and-play sensor with the capacity to deliver a reliable and dynamic response to thousands of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) across a plethora of applications.

The sensor has been developed for both diffusive and in-line pumped sampling, providing an excellent response time and rapid clear down. The MiniPID 2 PPM, VOC Gas Sensor’s lamps, are of intense luminosity while offering reliable stability for the detection of less volatile and less readily sensed compounds over a prolonged period of time.
