Electro-Com Sensors and Controls

Supplier: Electro-Com (Australia) Pty Ltd

Electro-Com have a range of sensors: Airflow sensors, Automative sensors, co2 gas sensors, pressure sensors and transducers.


The KLIXON solid-state airflow switch is ideal for recognizing loss or reduction of airflow in electronic equipment. Typically used in power supplies, data processing equipment, and large electronic cabinets. Unlike its electromechanical vane switch predecessor, TI's solid-state switch continues to provide reliable switching, even in dirty environments.

Automotive Pressure Switches for Various Systems
Sensors & Controls pressure switches provide low cost controls for many automotive systems. The snap-action disc reacts to changing pressure by reversing its curvature and activating electrical switch contacts. The custom packaging can be used for line or pump mount applications.

Texas Instruments gas sensors are presently comprised of two families of CO2 sensors:
- The 4GS for measuring concentrations up to 5000 parts per million
  typically for Indoor Air Quality applications, and
- The 9GS for up to 25% CO2 typically for industrial incubators and food

Both the 4GS and 9GS use a dual lamp design Virtual Reference™ non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) optical sense element. NDIR is a very proven, discriminating sensor technology.

Applications of Electro-Com Sensors and Controls
Demand control ventilation
- Controlled CO2 atmosphere for food transportation, industrial
  incubators, food processing and storage.
- Education: School biology experiments


- Hermetic and non-hermetic offerings
