The objective of this research was to develop a portable instrument to detect carbon monoxide (co) in a mine environment. The desired characteristics were sensitivity and specificity for CO with a stable calibration. The sensor of the instrument was to be composed of metal oxide, requiring low power for compatibility with the types of batteries presently used in personal equipment in mines. The solid-state design was also desired for ruggedness and small size. A key design feature of the instrument was to be provided by adherence to the intrinsic safety design requirements for electrical equipment operated in potentially explosive mine atmosphere.
