The BAH patented CIPS Technology is an optically based analytical technique that adds a new dimension to overcoming the deficiencies of conventional spectroscopic methods for gas detection. It is extremely accurate and selective, and opens up new opportunities which are not feasible using traditional optical methods.
The BAH Combustible Gas LPIR device is unique in that it operates at extremely low power levels, yet provides stable, reproducible results. Because of its low power it can operate for extended periods, in varying environmental conditions, on a 3 volt battery. This makes it very attractive for safety applications.
There has been a growing interest in the analyzing of human breath as a medical diagnostic methodology. The discrete and selective characteristics of the cips technology in targeting specific gases, make it ideal for those applications where the profile of the gas is within the CIPS range.
The detection of oxygen using optical methods or fluorescence is a recent development and one that offers many advantages. BAH is currently in final testing of our own solid state, fluorescence-based oxygen sensor. The advantage of our sensor (patent pending) is that it contains no hazardous materials, is non-depleting providing a much longer lifetime and uses very little power.
