Short summary
Detection of flammable gases is necessary to avoid explosive atmospheres. Commercial pellistors require an operation temperature above 450 °C for the detection of methane. We present a novel wireless low-power catalytic gas sensor system based on non-precious metal catalyst for the detection of methane and propane operated at 350 °C. The combination of a MEMS-based sensor with a low-power radio system provides the opportunity to monitor complex infrastructures without using a power grid.
