Ion Science, humidity resistant PID sensor manufacturer

Ion Science is the largest humidity resistant PID sensor manufacturer in the world.

The PID sensors incorporate the Fence Electrode Technology patented by Ion Science. The technology is proven to resist humidity and contamination, making it possible to get accurate measurements in harsh environments.


Ion Science is a humidity resistant PID sensor manufacturer of MiniPID 2 MiniPID 2 HS.

Designed for OEMs, the MiniPID sensors are trusted and used by many major gas detection manufacturers worldwide.

MiniPID 2

The MiniPID 2 sensor can detect and measure thousands of VOCs. The PID sensor is designed for diffusive and in line sampling.

The MiniPID 2 has 4 ranges of detection

PPM MiniPID 2: 0 – 6000 ppm with 0.1 ppm sensitivity

The sensor is configured to provide accurate continuous measurements of VOCs level. even at high concentration environments.

PPB MiniPID 2: 0 – 40 ppm with 0.001 ppm (1 ppb) sensitivity

The PPB sensor is optimised to provide exceptionally low background current to enable optimum low-end sensitivity.

10.0 eV MiniPID 2: 0 – 100 ppm with 0.005 ppm (5 ppb) sensitivity

The 10.0 eV variant is ideal for the selective measurement of compounds that contain low ionisation potential.

11.7 eV MiniPID 2: 0 to 100 ppm with 0.1 ppm (100 ppb) sensitivity 

The 11.7 eV lamp extends the range of detectable compounds to include chloro-carbons, CFCs, formaldehyde, chlorine and more.

The humidity resistant PID sensor has the following features

  • 10,000 hours of uninterrupted lamp life
  • Contamination prevention design
  • Wide range of ‘PPM’ models
  • Low drift and high sensitivity ‘PPB’ models
  • 10 eV, 10.6 eV and 11.7 eV lamps available
  • Detachable and pneumatically sealed sensing pellet
  • Series 4/A1 format
  • 12 month warranty (not including stacks)
  • 5 year life expectancy
  • Manufactured in the UK
  • Diffusive and in line pumped sampling

MiniPID 2 HS

The MiniPID 2 HS sensor is 15 times more sensitive than the MiniPID 2 sensor.

The MiniPID 2 HS sensor is capable of detecting trace levels of VOCs over long durations. The sensor is intrinsically safe certified and fulfils the ATEX, IECEx, II 1G Ex ia IIC T4 Ga accreditations.

The sensor is ideal for the following applications and locations:

  • Indoor air quality monitoring
  • Clean rooms
  • Fence line monitoring
  • Industrial hygiene
  • Soil sampling and air sampling
  • Fleeting emissions
  • Volatile spills
  • Law enforcement and emergency response

The MiniPID2 HS has the following features:

  • 10,000 hours of uninterrupted lamp life
  • 10.6 eV UV lamp
  • High sensitivity for sub-ppb level detection
  • Detection range – 0.5 ppb to 3ppm
  • The self-diagnostic feature checks for contamination
  • 12 month warranty (not including stacks)
  • Sensor lifetime – more than 5 years (excluding lamp and electrode stack)
  • Manufactured in the UK
  • Removable and pneumatically sealed
  • Certified as intrinsically safe
  • Series 4/A1 format
