The MS Tech Sensor R&D Center is currently developing novel Tuning Fork Sensors. The Tuning Fork Sensors are based on the principle of dual tuning forks, which vibrate at low frequencies. The scientific developments include the deposition of polymer, monolayer and antibody coatings, which are applied to the active surface of the sensors.
The Tuning Fork Sensors are designed for operation in gas, vapor and liquid phases. As the Tuning Fork Sensors are progressively covered by a liquid, a shift in frequency occurs, which activates the relay output. The Tuning Fork Sensor is often used in conditions where there may be frequent composition changes in the liquid.
The Tuning Fork Sensors have the capacity to detect and identify traces of materials in gas, vapor and liquid phases, even at very low concentrations. The sensors can be operated in various temperature ranges (from -10C to +60C) and at a humidity range of 5% to 95% RH without condensation.
