Hummingbird Paracube® Micro Sets New Standard for Oxygen Sensors
Crowborough, UK, 7 October 2009 - By combining Servomex's world-leading gas analysis technologies with cutting-edge manufacturing and design, the forthcoming Paracube® Micro from Hummingbird Sensing Technology establishes an exceptional new standard for oxygen sensors in critical care medical applications.
Delivering outstanding performance from a new compact unit, the Micro's 'next-generation' design ethos will offer a degree of system integration, flexibility, compliance and reliability currently unrivalled in the OEM oxygen sensor market.
Offering a full measurement range of 0-100% O2, the Micro utilises Servomex's proven paramagnetic oxygen cell technology to offer industry-leading levels of linearity, accuracy and reliability. With the non-consumable design meaning zero ongoing cost of ownership and the elimination of daily calibration due to excellent measurement stability, the Micro offers easy integration within critical care ventilators, anatomical anaesthesia, patient monitoring and other life critical healthcare applications.
Utilising the latest manufacturing techniques that require no lead solders or glues, the Micro measures just 33.5 x 30 x 46.5mm. This compact design, supported by bespoke housing options and a choice of analogue or digital signal output, enables easy physical and system integration into a variety of host instruments. As a consequence, the Micro can also be used in a variety of industrial applications including area monitoring and general gas analysis, while a robust construction also makes it suitable for incorporation into portable devices.
Full ROHS compliance not only also brings the Micro into line with the EU directive and other regional legislative requirements, but also insures against replacement for users where compliance is currently non-mandatory but potentially subject to legislative change - therefore securing excellent long-term cost-of-ownership. The Micro, as with all Hummingbird sensor modules, is assembled to the highest build quality at Servomex's state-of-the-art ISO 9001-certified manufacturing facility.
"The Paracube® Micro is a truly cutting-edge sensor that utilises the best possible technologies and techniques available today," says Chris Cottrell, Managing Director, Servomex.
"By listening to the voice of the customer during the development of Micro, Servomex has produced a product which not only redefines current expectations and performance in the current OEM market, but anticipates all requirements for oxygen analysis system design in the foreseeable future."
