A vapor sensor is a silicon-based sensor used to detect the concentration of gasoline vapors. It helps detect flammable gas vapors and prevent supply of gas and burner ignition. The advantage of vapor sensor is that it consumes no power, operates for long time, and has a long life up to 15 years. The 25VS is from Therm-O-Disc’s a chemi – resistive flammable vapor sensor designed in such a manner to provide customization services for the Water Heater Industry Joint Research and Development Consortium to meet the requirements of flammable Vapor Ignition Resistance (FVIR).
Vapor sensor is made up of three components-molded cover, sensor film, and an insert molded-base. This sensor has unique benefits and provides additional advantages over other technologies such as gas sensors, UV sensors, and others. Other technologies make use of infrared technology, wireless technology, which transmits data from one source to another through IR radiation. For instance, 25VS sensor by Emerson Technologies requires no external power and can easily operate in electronic device.
The vapor sensor market is expected to witness growth in subsequent years from 2019 to 2026 as it is capable of identifying the presence of flammable vapors with rapid response. This prevents chances of fire breaking. 25VS has long life and inbuilt with good senses that continuously monitor operations and deals efficiently with gasoline components in any range of temperature falls between 0 degree Celsius – 65 degree Celsius. Encouragement by manufacturers of water heaters because of having senses to deal with over wide range of temperature and environmental conditions, drives the growth of the market. Emerson, a major player in sensor market manufactures sensors controls, and switches, developed Therm -O- Disc 25VS, to initiate and expand the use of this sensor across various applications, they have started development programs which facilitates users with products having standardized design, minimizing temperature sensitivity, and capable to sense over broad range in addition to gasoline.
Factors such as rise in government regulations regarding workers safety in extreme working conditions, increase in demand for wireless sensors in oil & gas industry vertical act as major drivers, driving the growth of the market. However, problems regarding deployment of sensors in extreme working conditions restricts the vapor sensor market growth considerably. Furthermore, increase in adoption of vapor sensors in consumer electronics and growth in adoption of IoT in sensor technologies offers lucrative opportunities for the vapor sensor market.
