Description and Operation
The Cirius range of sensors use the non-dispersive infrared method to detect the presence of gases. The sensors contain an infrared radiation source, a dual element infrared detector and a unique optical waveguide into which gas diffuses. The dual element infrared detector responds to changes in incident radiation and to operate the sensor the infrared source should be pulsed with a duty cycle of 50% at a frequency typically between 2Hz and 4Hz. The sensor produces outputs for active wavelengths, which are modified by the presence of target gas, and for reference wavelengths, which are not modified by the presence of target gas. These outputs consist of a small AC signal in sympathy with the source pulse that is superimposed on a DC voltage pedestal. The sensor also provides a measure of internal temperature via an embedded thermistor. The sensor requires a voltage supply to operate the infrared detector and the connections to the sensor follow the industry standard 7 pin format. 

To operate the sensor it must be connected to a suitable circuit that provides the source drive and extracts the small AC signals from the DC voltage pedestal. The circuit must amplify the small AC signals, extract a value from them and treat the results to provide a linear output related to gas concentration. The temperature output from the sensor should be used to apply temperature compensation in order to achieve the full performancespecification.

Matched Transmitter board for Cirius 2
 - OEM 4-20mA Transmitter for NDIR Gas Sensors (Methane/Carbon dioxide)

The Cirius X OEM 4-20mA transmitter is an extremely flexible transmitter for NDIR gas sensors providing a robust linear 4-20mA output in response to signals from standard NDIR gas sensors. All sensor driving, signal extraction and linearisation is performed on-board with calibration and configuration accessed by a menu driven sequence using 3 pushbuttons or via the RS232 port. The 2-line LCD display shows the gas concentration and units under normal operation, fault diagnostics under fault conditions and interactive text under pushbutton operation for calibration. The pushbuttons are disabled if the display is removed, enabling tamper-proof running. Sensor connections to the Cirius X are made by 3-way and 4-way crimp EH connectors, segregating the sensor supply from the signal lines. Connections for the input power and 4-20mA source output are via screw terminals and an earth spade terminal is provided along with an earth bonding pad for ease of earth connections.
