MPS™ gas sensors from MSR-Electronic are now on the market following intensive development

03 January 2024

The innovative sensor based on MPS™ technology (Molecular Property Spectrometer), newly developed by MSR-Electronic in collaboration with NevadaNano, is one of the latest generation of sensors, offering unprecedented safety for people and plants.

Highly flexible sensor solution.

The MPS™ gas sensors are particularly suitable for hard-to-reach areas and complex applications, as they can operate for long periods without requiring calibration or maintenance; be it, for example, in the petrochemical industry, industrial plants, H2 research, production, transport, logistics, the refrigeration industry or even in the oil and gas industry as well as in the shipping and offshore sectors.

False alarms and inaccurate readings are a thing of the past.

After almost 40 years, NevadaNano, in collaboration with the University of Nevada, Reno, has succeeded in developing a gas sensor for combustible, explosive and flammable gases using MPS™ technology, which overcomes the hurdles faced by existing sensors. This not only includes high accuracy, linearity, stability and repeatability over the sensor's entire lifetime, but also resistance to poisoning, which is particularly advantageous for plants that are frequently exposed to various gases and external influences. The gas sensors can be used to detect refrigerant gases, hydrogen, acetylene, methane and propane.


Thanks to its collaboration with NevadaNano, MSR-Electronic has succeeded in bringing a gas sensor onto the market with a service life of over 15 years. This is a significantly longer service life compared with other MPS™ gas sensors on the market. A special advantage is the neutralisation of the groups. This means that the MPS™ sensors from MSR-Electronic are individually adapted to the target gas and thus achieve a significantly higher level of accuracy. The MPS™ sensor is available in both the PolyGard® and PolyXeta® product series from MSR-Electronic. These include the typical MSR advantages of easy changing using XChange Technology, powerful processors in each individual sensor for easy reading of all sensor data, modular and flexible controller solutions and, last but not least, personal support from MSR-Electronic, its subsidiaries and local partners.

The cooperation with NevadaNano.

NevadaNano Systems, Inc. is the world's leading innovator in gas sensor technology. “Since first making contact with Garry Collins, Head of Sales at NevadaNano, in 2020, and following an intensive in-house development phase, MSR-Electronic is now presenting a groundbreaking product, which stands out enormously from the competition in terms of service life and accuracy of measuring values. We are very proud of our collaboration with NevadaNano,” says Harald Schmitt, CEO of MSR-Electronic.

MSR-Electronic is a manufacturer of fixed gas warning systems with decades of experience in the area of building automation and gas measuring technology. The international company with headquarters in Germany offers a wide range of methods for the detection of toxic and combustible gases. On this basis, MSR-Electronic develops individual gas sensors, controllers and warning devices for many applications, such as parking garages, tunnels, the petrochemical industry and shipping. The products meet and surpass general standards and regulations and can thus guarantee the safety of the plant.
