Housings for Gas Sensors

As the name suggests, gas sensors are used to detect a wide range of gases. Hence, they are most frequently used with the intention of alerting people when the surrounding area is filled with dangerous concentrations of gas, thereby enabling them to take corrective action.

This being said, the gas sensors themselves must be protected from the gases that they monitor – in some cases, the gas could be extremely damaging. Hence, glass-to-metal sealed (GTMS) feedthroughs not only protect the sensors, but also simultaneously ensure that the sensors are supplied with electrical power.
