Product Portfolio
  • Industry sensors - Gas Measurement

  • OEM sensors from m-u-t are designed to reliably measure the physical properties of materials such as solids, liquids, gases and plasmas in your production process.

    By using m-u-t OEM sensors you can measure properties of solids, e.g. concentration of ingredients, color, contour, and a variety of quality parameters. In liquids, sensors determine identifying features (tracers), optical density, ingredients and color, for example. Contactless measurement and analysis of gases based on UV and NDIR technology (none-dispersive infrared technology)  has become the superior test method. With this technology, production processes can be monitored and controlled continuously and in real time. Therefore, customers from various industries are improving their process quality and minimizing waste by using NDIR detectors. Gas sensor applications developed by our engineers, e.g. methane sensors, are individualized complete solutions, calibrated precisely to the specific measuring task.

    Our single gas sensor modules are designed to measure gases individually: e.g. oxygen (O2), carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrogen (H2), ozone (O3), ethine (C2H2), ethene (C2H4) and ethane (C2H6), methanol (CH3OH), acetone (C3H6O), ethanol (C2H5OH).

    m-u-t multi-gas detectors analyze up to fourteen gases simultaneously and selectively in a single sensor chamber. Up to eight gases, e.g. CO (carbon monoxide), CO2 (carbon dioxide), CxHx (hydrocarbons), are measured optically and are integrated in a unit with up to six other chemical sensors, e.g. H2 (hydrogen) or O2 (oxygen). Besides determining the concentration of target gases, physical parameters such as humidity and temperature are also measured. In addition to the high precision of the measuring results, which are essential for production-critical processes, m-u-t sensors are also completely wear-free, as they do not have any moving parts. Therefore, the sensors are maintenance-free and require no repair.

      • Components

          • Ozone (O3) Gas Sensor

          • m-u-t develops and manufactures gas sensor modules exactly according your requirements. Several platforms with different concentration ranges and options are available for gaseous ozone (O3) measurement.

          • CO2 Detector Modul

          • m-u-t develops sensor modules to your specifications to exclusively fit your needs.

            The following standard modules are also available in stock:

            The CO2 sensor LC is a microprocessor controlled gas analyzer using non diffractive IR detection (NDIR) for determination of CO2 concentration. This low price CO2 detector is characterized by low power consumption, a wide supply voltage range of 8 V … 15 V and simultaneous integration of current and voltage interface.
            A microprocessor controls all necessary functions and performs calculations which allow fast customer specific adaptions by software variations.

            For our CO2 detector we offer different calibrations for varying concentrations of CO2: 10%, 11%, 30%, and 100%.

          • IR Multi-Gas Sensor NDIR Module

          • Infrared multi gas sensors are based on the principle of non-dispersive infrared spectroscopy (NDIR).

            The multi gas sensor
            The multi gas sensor uses light of a specific wavelength in the infrared range to illuminate the sample depending on the type of gas to be analyzed. It measures the absorption of light when crossing the sample chamber and indicates the concentration of the gas in the sample chamber. A chemical reaction does not take place in the process, so our multi gas sensors have a long service life and remain stable over the long term. 

            The measurement of up to three gases in a single sensor considerably reduces cross-sensitivities (which are otherwise commonplace) not only by adeptly selecting the IR wavelengths, but also via algorithmic incorporation of all measurement channels. Three gases can be combined freely depending on the requirements. CO carbon monoxide, CO2 carbon dioxide, CH4 methane, C2H2 acetylene, C2H4 ethylene or C2H6 ethane are available right now.

            The measurement precisions that can be achieved depend on the respective gas combination and the measurement ranges, and can be optimized for the application at hand by suitable calibration.

                  • Photonic Solutions

                  • Since the foundation of m-u-t in 1995, we have developed optical measurement systems that cover the wavelength range from UV-VIS-NIR-LWIR.

                    Photonics -- as this field is often called -- stems from the combination of the word ‚photon’ (meaning ‚light quantum’) and the latin suffix –ic (meaning ‚having some characteristics of’). At m-u-t, photonics is synonymous with the field of optoelectronics.

                    The numerous applications of photonics can be divided up into four general fields:

                    • Lighting and displays
                    • Industrial process and quality control
                    • Information and communication
                    • Life sciences (including biophotonics)

                    Our customer specific development products are normally covered by confidentiality clauses.

                  • Automated Measurement

                  • Is spectroscopy possible in automated processes?
                    It is for m-u-t. With our decades of experience in spectroscopic sensor technology, we provide you with solutions that allow you to integrate manual or external laboratory analysis into your equipment.

                    In order to meet the criteria for automated measurement, we take the following into account when implementing our systems:

                    1. Sample feeding and sample handling
                    Whether the sample needs to be fed to the sensor system or vice versa, our mechatronic solutions enable either procedure to be automated.

                    2. Measuring method
                    Whether UV/VIS, NIR, RAMAN, LIBS spectroscopy or other methods, we check: which measurement method is the right one to achieve the effect required whether the measurement method is suitable for the usage intended

                    3. Sensors for the measuring method
                    Which spectroscopic sensors fit your measurement methodology? We'll procure the optimal solution from the extensive Nynomic portfolio.

                    4. Data handling
                    How do you obtain the necessary target data from the data available? We'll create the algorithm for this task and integrate it into the measurement hardware.

                    5. Data transfer to interface
                    The measurement hardware delivers the required target data to the automated surrounding system via defined interfaces and interface protocols – e.g. via Modbus or RS485. We create these interfaces in accordance with your needs.

                • Serial production

                    • Process Control on UV Lamp

                    • For fast UV lamp drying processes in CD & DVD production and drying of dyestuffs and colors in the printing industry, it is important that the light source has the right intensity at the correct wavelength. Otherwise either the process takes too long or the material is not completely consolidated.

                      The given task
                      The lamps need to be inspected for intensity and wavelength distribution. As soon as they are altered, the intensity needs to be increased. If this does not help, the lamp needs to be replaced. A device for permanent inspection of each lamp is necessary. The process may not be prolonged by the inspection or by replacing the UV lamps too early.

                      The solution
                      An OEM version of our TRISTAN UV spectrometer is used to control the spectral distribution and intensity of the UV light. It is fully integrated into the process control system of the production line. Due to the unique design of the integrated processing unit (a 32 bit RISC processor), a separate PC for data transfer is not required. The lamp is operated for the actual lifetime at the needed parameters and at a constant output level. At the end of the lamp’s lifetime, the operator is notified to change the lamp. The OEM TRISTAN monitors and regulates fully-automatically the UV intensity in the running process. Analysis of the UV spectrum in the range of 250 to 550 nm is performed in up to 3 freely-definable control ranges. Changes to the UV intensity are recognized and the process is steered to optimum at all times by the closed control circuit. The spectrometer in use has a resolution of up to 0.15 nm. This guarantees a stable UV process, a consistently high quality and performance, and at the same time reduces the number of rejects.

                      At the start of production, the optimum UV power for the respective process is registered with the „Teach-In“ function. The power control is performed directly based on the consolidation and sterilization process, and no longer on the electrical input values. Process control is done automatically by means of special software. Measurements can be started by internal timers or by external triggers. The measurement cycle times of the internal timer can be selected freely in the range of 1 sec to 180 sec. This guarantees exact harmonization with the production cycle. Optical fibers and sensors are re-calibrated with every „Teach-In“. This ensures precise and reliable values with every measurement. The measuring lens is also protected by shutters. With this system, based on the TRISTAN OEM spectrometer with its fast integration time and easy-to-use software interface, it is possible to raise the quality and shorten the time of industrial drying process in one single step. Moreover, the cost-intensive change rate of UV-lamps can be decreased.
                    • Testing fuel with a gas tag analyser

                    • If you need a portable measuring device to detect the presence of counterfeit or mixed fuels, m-u-t has developed an amazingly simple solution: the gas tag analyser (GTA).

                      Complete system for mobile use
                      Compact in size and striking in performance, this mobile test equipment fits in the boot of any car. Yet it offers everything you need to measure very small amounts of chemical indicators in liquids. So you can easily identify and mark fuels that are stored or transported without a container. No more time-consuming lab analysis.

                      How the GTA works
                      Fuels contain very low concentrations of a liquid indicator, which due to its spectral signature is practically copy-proof. Our GTA system determines this indicator and measures its concentration in the liquid. It then indicates whether the fuel is original, mixed or counterfeit. You get accurate results that reflect even the slightest deviation from the original.

                      The GTA at a glance

                      • Solutions

                          • Object detection

                          • Intelligent object detection that avoids false alarms? m-u-t's IGNIS3D detects fire hazards earlier and more accurately than any other infrared system available. Around 25 years of experience have gone into this innovative product.

                            How does IGNIS3D differ from competitors?
                            The IGNIS3D system detects small sources of danger even if there are larger but non-hazardous hot objects in the vicinity. As a result, it detects hot spots faster and prevents the spread of fire more efficiently.

                            How IGNIS3D works
                            • Moving objects are filtered out and don't trigger an alarm
                            • Dormant permitted objects are specified in a database as geometric objects and don't trigger an alarm
                            • Includes a standard database that can be enhanced as required

                          • Patented 3D IR detection

                            The basic module of the IGNIS infrared detection for early fire detection identified a danger. The globally unique 3D module extension for early fire detection determines the precise location information and the individual danger of the glowing nest. This information will be forwarded to a particular deletion server. The danger points are sorted according to the degree of danger and dealt with separately. The extinguishing server is for the simultaneous control of different extinguishing monitors. The number of IGNIS3D infrared detection systems and water cannons is independently from each other. The installation position of the systems can now be freely selected: Your fire protection concept will be ideal.

                            Extinguishing measures can also be carried out by other detectors or the operating personnel. They are treated in such a way that they cannot be experienced by the IGNIS3D or are explicitly excluded from fully automatic viewing.

                            • IGNIS3D infrared detection for early fire detection

                            • If you need accurate infrared measurement technology for early fire detection, m-u-t's patented Ignis3D infrared detection with distance measurement is the answer. It enables embers to be accurately detected and dealt with using the latest 3D spatial data.

                              How does Ignis3D outperform competing systems?
                              Conventional systems record the area once at the time of installation. The disadvantage with this is that if, for example, the fill heights of a room change, the system may not be able to locate the source of a fire.

                              Ignis3D scans the environment automatically and continuously, so the 3D coordinates are never more than two minutes old. In the event of an alarm, this is a considerable advantage, as the data enables accurate extinguishing. Ignis3D is the only system on the market that can do this.

                              What is the distance used for?
                              Temperature measurement The VdS loss prevention council stipulates accuracy of 5K for temperature measurement. Only Ignis3D meets this standard every time – even in dusty environments and at variable distances. Under these circumstances, conventional solutions can cause deviations of more than 25K.

                              The system applies coolant to the same surface from any distance, and the projectile trajectory is always accurate thanks to precise calculation. The number of Ignis3D detectors doesn't have to be the same as the number of sprinklers, and their mounting locations can be different too.

                              The advantages of distance measurement at a glance
                              • Precise temperature measurement even in dusty environments
                              • Accurate detection of embers

                            • First infrared fire detection system with laser distance measurement and VdS recognition.

                              The IGNIS3D IR camera units have been certified by the VdS under recognition number G 220008.

                              IGNIS3D fulfils more than the requirements of the VdS 3189 directive for the design and installation of IR camera units for temperature monitoring in fire protection. Instead of static 3D space detection, hotspots that move on the optical axis of the infrared camera are also measured precisely. Thanks to the unique dynamic 3D measurement, hotspots can also be evaluated and prioritized in their potential danger.

                              The aim of VdS directive 3189 is: Due to local and operational characteristics, it may be useful to use IR camera units in addition to fire detection in accordance with VdS 2095 or DIN VDE 0833-2, in particular for the temperature monitoring of surfaces. This way, temperature abnormalities, e.g. in the form of temperature gradients, can be reacted to at an early stage in the monitoring area of the IR camera unit.

                              The following functions are performed by an IR camera unit IGNIS3D:
                              • Early detection and localisation of areas with elevated temperature, such as hotspots, hot surfaces
                              • Monitoring of surfaces by measuring current temperatures, temperature curve or temporal changes in temperature
                              • Support of firefighting management and optional mobile and/or stationary firefighting

                              Please contact our project engineers to discuss the exact procedure with you.

                            • Early fire detection technology with infrared detection

                            • Early fire detection with IGNIS3D measures the surface temperature of the property being monitored so it can detect the increase of heat long before a critical temperature is reached.

                              Early fire detection based on this principle has crucial system advantages over all other detector technologies:

                              Visualisation of the temperature increase
                              Invisible LWIR radiation is made visible by using calibrated microbolometer technology. Each radiation value has a temperature value and a colour associated with it. In this way, the surface temperature distribution becomes visible and can be captured with a view to its immediate assessment.

                              Non-contact measurement over long distances
                              LWIR thermal image-based early fire detection can be used over several hundred meters. Every pixel of the sensor corresponds to a temperature of the observed image. Using this information, the unit can be used to identify potential sources of fire and fire prevention measures.

                              ‘Clear view’ in smoke and haze
                              In the wavelength range of LWIR radiation of 8-12μm, in many situations where there is smoke or haze, aerosols are transparent. In contrast to normal surveillance cameras or the human eye, which have much shorter wavelengths, an LWIR camera can ‘see through smoke’, so to speak. This technology provides valuable support for firefighters in case of fire.

                                          • NIRS

                                          • Near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) describes a physical-optical analysis method based on spectroscopy in the range of short-wave infrared light. The method originally comes from the medical sector but has also been used in agriculture for many years. For analysis, the medium (e.g. liquid manure) is irradiated with near infrared light - the human eye cannot perceive this. With the help of reflection, the NIRS sensor is able to detect the ingredients based on the difference between irradiated and reflected light.

                                          • The analysis of milk ingredients is a time-consuming process - usually it requires pre-treatment. 

                                            The Plus in Safety
                                            Using an NIRS sensor during the milking process enables the analysis of quality-relevant ingredients directly in the raw milk. Contaminants can also be identified. Due to the sample frequency, very high accuracy can be achieved. The data is directly available - long waiting times are avoided. Thus, milk producers get a plus in safety.

                                          • More Efficiency in Crop Production
                                            For optimum harvest results, farmers and contractors can combine their ISOBUS sowing technology with a soil sensor. Soil sensors based on NIRS technology are the key to optimal harvest results. Knowledge of the nutrient content of the soil and the different soil conditions allows adjusted sowing rates - the seed drill varies the seed quantity and seed rate according to the respective values. The complicated use of application maps is no longer necessary.

                                            Your advantages at one glance:
                                            • Maximum harvest results thanks to adjusted sowing rates
                                            • No complicated use of application cards necessary

                                          • Data Management

                                          • What is the best technology without the appropriate software? Our NIRS sensors allow you to use a wide variety of systems. Open data interfaces as well as certification according to the ISOBUS standard enable data transfer to various agricultural software systems and field mapping systems for generating application maps.

                                            There is nothing more flexible
                                            Already today, our m-u-t system provides an interface to CCI, ISOBUS Task Controller, DKE agrirouter and IoT. Other systems can be easily controlled via ISOBUS. Thus, customers can not only use their NIRS sensor for analysis, but also send it to the field file and create yield, fertilization and spray maps.

                                            • Liquid Manure Application - Accurate & Sustainable
                                              In contrast to mineral fertilizers, farm fertilizers offer many advantages. Using them is more sustainable because all nutrients contained are part of the nutrient cycle anyway.

                                              Your advantages at one glance:

                                              • Based on our calibration database, your data is especially precise
                                              • Inhomogeneous liquid manure causes any problems for the measurement
                                              • Real-time data - no more annoying waiting for laboratory results
                                              • Sensors can be mounted anywhere where farm manure flows past - completely flexible
                                            • Fertilization 2.0

                                            • Demand-oriented Liquid Manure Application
                                              Would you like to do more? If our NIRS sensor is combined with the appropriate plant or soil sensor, liquid manure application is possible not only on a nutrient-oriented basis, but even on a demand-oriented basis. This means that farmers and contractors can easily meet increased requirements - that is fertilization 2.0.

                                              How does the interaction work?
                                              The plant sensor measures the chlorophyll content of the plants and thus analyzes how much nitrogen the crop needs. The optimum amount of fertilizer can then be calculated on the basis of previously defined minimum and maximum values for N, P and K. The NIRS sensor in the slurry tank also records the nutrient values of the organic fertilizer. With ISOBUS it is thus possible to apply exactly the amount of fertilizer that the crop requires. This precision can be exceeded even further if soil maps are stored, which indicate the yield potential and the nitrogen replenishment. This is the future of fertilization.

                                              Your advantages at one glance:

                                              • Combined with plant or soil sensors for even more precision
                                              • Demand-oriented fertilization
                                            • Harvesting Technology

                                            • Harvesting is one of the most important and decisive times of the year for agricultural producers.

                                              Arable farms aim for the best prices for their products
                                              Arable farms aim for the best prices for their products and, with the subsequent soil cultivation and fertilization, lay the foundation for the following harvest. Processing farms use the harvest to create the fodder basis for a whole year. So, what if sensors would help to produce the optimal silage, provide the basis for successful price negotiations or ensure precise nutrient removal? With NIRS, this is already possible today. NIRS technology provides great advantages not only in liquid manure spreading, but also during harvesting.

                                                  • Gripper systems – handling of blood sample tubes

                                                  • Our gripper systems can help you set up and place blood sample tubes accurately. We provide you with durable precision solutions for laboratory automation, developed and manufactured in accordance with your specifications.

                                                    TPU for placing
                                                    With our tube placing unit (TPU), blood sample tubes can be placed accurately in racks, pucks or cars. For this purpose it is equipped with a Z-axis and rotary movement. It grips the tubes straight so that the bottom of the tube finds the opening of the rack. The integrated barcode scanner enables placement with the barcode aligned. In order not to obstruct the measurement of barcode, fill level or HIL status, the TPU grips the tube high up.

                                                    TRU for raising
                                                    Our TRU (tube raising unit) lifts blood sample tubes from a horizontal to a vertical position with the cap facing upwards. It doesn't matter whether the tube is placed with the cap on the left or on the right side under the gripper. The TRU can then transfer the upright tube to a second gripper (such as the TPU) or place it directly in a puck, rack or car using integrated Z-axis movement. Our gripper systems can be flexibly adapted to your product.

                                                    With our modular logic controller (MLC), you get modular control for DIN rail mounting. It consists of a central unit and up to 15 I/O modules that can be combined in any way, containing digital and analogue inputs and outputs. In this way, simple applications can be realised without the need for work-arounds. The programming is done with Multiprog© as per IEC 61131 in up to five different programming languages.  

                                                    With its modular design and generous expansion reserve, the MLC can be easily adapted to different requirements.

                                                  • Gas sensors for combined air humidity and gas measurement

                                                  • Do you need your air or gas humidity sensors to react faster than capacitive sensors? Do you need more precise measurements at high or low humidity? m-u-t has a bespoke solution: NDIR air humidity measuring devices combined with gas sensors. With this purely optical method, you can measure absolute humidity over a wide range.

                                                    High flexibility
                                                    Measuring range and measuring speed an be easily adapted to meet your requirements. The pressure and temperature sensors allow measurements to be outputted in different units.
