CMR Group introduces natural gas sensor
CMR Group’s new NIRIS Natural Gas sensor

CMR Group has launched a new Near Infrared Intelligent Sensor (NIRIS) Natural Gas sensor to cut consumption of natural gas-powered engines and provide real time measurement of fuel quality.

The sensor, which is directly connected to the gas feeder pipeline, is built around smart infrared hardware and data treatment software and features a CAN bus communications facility, which enables the system to be upgradeable without dismantling the sensor for improved performance and retro applications.

Natural gas consumption levels can be further reduced by engine tuning closer to knocking limits due to effective fuel management strategies using sensor data. Other benefits include lower fuel analysis costs, correct engine performance and the overall alleviation of time consuming and costly damage to components due to inferior or low-grade gas fuels.
