SANTA CLARA, CA and BALLERUP, DENMARK--(Marketwire - May 05, 2009) -

LumaSense Technologies, a leading provider of temperature and gas sensing solutions, announces the first in a new family of gas analysis instruments for use in a wide variety of industrial applications, the Multi Gas Monitor - INNOVA 1316. The INNOVA 1316 is capable of measuring a customer-specified set of up to five gases at a very affordable price.

The INNOVA 1316 is a cost-effective instrument based on a rugged, reliable, and field-proven product platform. The instrument provides a highly reliable, very accurate, multi-gas solution that can be used in numerous applications, e.g.: Fermentation Monitoring, Refrigerant Leak Detection, Landfill and/or Greenhouse Gas Monitoring, Biogas Monitoring, Stack Gas Monitoring (CEMS), Inert gas blanketing in the Food Industry, monitoring of hospital gases for occupational hygiene, and Industrial Process- and Production-Control. The INNOVA 1316 incorporates our Andros® brand of NDIR (Non-Dispersive Infrared) gas bench which has no moving parts in the optical path. LumaSense has many thousands of these units successfully deployed for years in harsh and demanding environments. The instrument measures up to five gases, including Oxygen, and is configured from an assortment of available gas detection modules and sensors.

"LumaSense Technologies is pleased to address users in several markets with a cost-effective instrument based on our field-proven NDIR technology platform. The INNOVA 1316 is an excellent complement to the ultra-low detection ranges of our existing line of photo-acoustic gas analyzers -- the INNOVA 1412 and INNOVA 1314," comments Jesper Krogdahl, managing director for LumaSense Technologies A/S.

The INNOVA 1316 instrument has user-friendly software that communicates via RS-232 or USB interfaces. Measured data can be shown on a PC as numeric values or graphically for ease of interpretation. Large datasets can be analyzed by our software or exported to other analytical software tools. The software can accept up to four INNOVA 1316 instruments each representing a separate sample point. The software is compatible with Windows® XP, Windows Vista®, Windows Server® 2003.

LumaSense Technologies designs and manufactures both the INNOVA brand of end-user instruments and the Andros® brand of OEM gas benches. The NDIR technology platform allows multiple gases to be measured with a single optical assembly that can be configured for various tasks including combustion monitoring, methane capture, fermentation and refrigerant leak detection.
