SM-X Ozone Sensor

The SM-X was a replacement ozone sensor for the OS-4, OS-6, and A-22.  However, the SM-X is no longer in production and is now obsolete.

SM-X Replacement Sensor

The SM-6 also used the SM-X as a replacement sensor and therefore, the SM-6 is no longer available.

SM-6 with SM-X

The replacement SM-X (also known as the SM-X-20 or SM-X-2) ozone sensor was paired with EcoSensors OS-4 Ozone Switch, OS-6 Ozone Controller, and A-22 Ozone Monitor as these devices replacement sensors. The following options are now available instead:

A-22 Ozone Monitor

A-22 Ozone Monitor

The A-22 does not have a replacement sensor option.  This device is now obsolete and a replacement sensor option is not available.   We recommend the following as comparable monitor options:
D-16 with Ozone 0-20 ppm – https://www.gas-sensing.com/d-16-gas-detector.html?sel=2495
S-300 with EOZ 0-10 ppm – https://www.gas-sensing.com/aeroqual-series-300.html

OS-4 Ozone Switch & OS-6 Ozone Controller

OS-4 Ozone Switch
OS-6 Ozone Controller

The OS-4 and OS-6 devices can use the SM-7/SM-EC electrochemical ozone sensor as a replacement to the SM-6/SM-X and will need to be wired to connect to the OS-4 or OS-6.

SM-7/SM-EC Ozone Sensor

There are two range options for this new SM-7/SM-EC sensor: 0-20ppm or 1-50ppm.  Both range options can be used with the OS-6, but only the 0-20ppm can be used with the OS-4. After you have upgraded to the SM-7/SM-EC then the SM-EC sensor can be replaced in the SM-7 for future replacement.

SM-EC sensor module

The SM-7/SM-EC sensors should be replaced annually as the sensor calibration is good for up to 1 year.

Feel free to contact us with any questions that you have about the SM-X being discontinued.

OEM-3

We are excited to announce the OEM-3 Ozone Controller is now available!  The OEM-3 is the updated version of the OEM-1 and OEM-2 that is manufactured by EcoSensors.  This new device is a perfect Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) ozone sensor that can be integrated into your own equipment.  The OEM-3 is a simple and cost effective way of controlling your ozone levels and can shut down equipment in the event of an ozone leak.

OEM-3

The OEM-3 is a 12/24 VDC powered board that offers a 4-20mA and 0-2VDC output.  There are 3 different ranges options to choose from: 0-0.1ppm, 0-1ppm, and 0-10ppm or custom configurations are available to meet all of your range requirements.

Specifications:

  • Sensor: Electrochemical SPEC Sensor.
  • Range: 0-0.1 ppm, 0-1.0 ppm, or 0-10.0 ppm
  • Sensitivity: As low as 0.03 ppm for the 0.1 ppm module, These sensitivities will decrease if sensor module extension cables are used.
  • Response time: < 60 s to 90% full scale, immediate response time < 5 s.
  • Turn-on, turn-off time delay: 8 seconds standard. Other times by request.
  • Recommended temperature and humidity range: 50F-86F (10C-30C), 25%-75% RH. The circuit does include temperature compensation.
  • Supply voltage required: 12-24 VDC or AC, 250 mA.
  • Relay ratings: SPDT non-latching. Contacts: 5 amps at 250 volts AC.
  • Size of main board: 83 X 83 mm (3.25″ X 3.25″). Requires 28 mm (1.125″) clearance from top surface of board and 6 mm (.250″) clearance from bottom surface of the board.
  • Warm-up Time: Min. 1 hour before testing, for best results allow 12 hours before continued use.
  • Zero Adjustment: Re-zero function included standard
  • Compatibility: The gas exposure inlet of the OEM-3 is located the same distance off the board as the tip of the SM-5 sensor on OEM-2 and the relay activation time is the same as in the OEM-2 product family

To order the new OEM-3 you can go to our website or contact us with any questions that you have.

Aeroqual Monitor Functions

Aeroqual Monitor Base

The Aeroqual monitor base is an electronic platform with an ergonomic design into which you plug your chosen sensor head(s).  The monitor base has a range of features that allow it to be used in a variety of different applications.  The Aeroqual portable air quality monitors are a cost-effective solution to measuring multiple target gases and particulate matter at different concentrations in indoor and outdoor applications.

Which monitor do I need?

For real-time display measurements and zero calibration, the Series-200 is a cost effective solution. If an audible alarm or analog output are required, along with the ability to make gain adjustments, choose the Series 300.  For all of these features and datalogging, the flagship Series 500 is a clear choice.  For a comparison of the different monitor bases (Series-200, Series-300, Series-500), see the chart below which can help to identify the model most suitable for your requirements.
