Original Abstract

A market survey has been performed of commercially available hydrogen safety sensors, resulting in a total sample size of 53 sensors from 21 manufacturers. The technical specifications, as provided by the manufacturer, have been collated and are displayed as a function of sensor working principle. These specifications comprising measuring range, response and recovery times, ambient temperature, pressure and relative humidity, power consumption and sensor lifetime are then compared against known performance targets for both automotive and stationary applications in order to establish how far current technology satisfies current requirements of sensor end users. Gaps in the performance of hydrogen sensing technologies are thus identified and areas recommended for future research and development.
