Integrated Device Technology (IDT), a wholly owned subsidiary of Renesas Electronics, introduced the first software-upgradeable, digital outdoor air quality sensor for high volume applications. The IDT ZMOD4510 sensor can detect ozone (O3) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) gases, two significant causes of unhealthy outdoor air quality. The ability of the ZMOD4510 to quantify combined ozone and NOx in concentrations as low as 20 parts per billion (ppb), coupled with its outstanding combination of flexibility and small size, makes it an ideal solution for a wide variety of industrial and consumer applications.
For product designers working on HVAC systems, industrial cameras, home automation systems, smart air purifiers, smartwatches, and other wearables, the ZMOD4510 is a sensor solution capable of targeting multiple aspects of outdoor air quality with improved energy efficiency, and high sensitivity and reliability. Complementing these advantages, the ZMOD4510 can be quickly integrated into designs thanks to precompiled firmware and the pre-calibration of all ZMOD4510 sensors, which lowers customer production costs.
The ZMOD4510 is based on proven metal oxide (MOx) material and each sensor is calibrated electrically with gas to ensure consistency from lot to lot, an important advantage for manufacturers with long production runs. ZMOD4510 devices are also highly resistant to siloxanes for superior reliability use in harsh applications.
