Modular Chemical Detection System (SC-210)

The Modular Chemical Detection System is designed to provide the basic parts necessary to incorporate a chemical sensor into an existing network or device for demonstration purposes. Weighing less than four ounces (100g), the SC-210 base assembly can detect numerous volatile organic chemicals, emissions gases, nitroaromatics, and chemical warfare agents (CWA).  Optional modules can be added to increase response speed, increase sensitivity, to protect the sensor from extreme environments, and to build a handheld miniature gas chromatograph.

Winner of CONNECT Organization's Most Innovative Product Award in 2007's Security Technology Competition.   

As a stand-alone sensor this system can be easily worn as a badge or placed throughout a building to offer heightened workplace safety levels. In addition, the small size and rapid connectivity of the SC-210 allows it to be easily integrated into existing surveillance systems. This means two detection technologies can easily work together to detect multiple classes of dangerous chemicals while reducing the potential for false alarms.
