Electrochemical Sensors

Operating principle of electrochemical gas sensors by Figaro.

Alphasense Application Note: How Electrochemical Gas Sensors Work.

Electrochemical sensors generally show temperature dependence and cross-sensitivity to other trace gasses. The bias of the readings is strongly affected by changes in relative humidity (for example going from indoors to outdoors).

Sensor readings tend to drift over time. Regular recalibration is essential.
