Paper Abstract

The main aim of this work is to present an application of PIC16 microcontrollers in single sensor two gas - CO and CH4 detectors, using recently developed by FIS Incorporated, semiconductor sensor SB-95. Microcontroller is used not only for comparison the actual output signal from the sensor with the warning and alarm thresholds, but also provides control and self diagnostic functions. Output logic signals allow user to check the level of gas concentration and detect the improper operation of sensor and electronics circuits.
