MH-440D infrared gas sensor is a miniature universal intelligent sensor, which adopts NDIR theory to detect concentration of CH4 in air and has good selectivity, stable performance, long life, also is independent of Oxygen. The inside temperature sensor could be used for temperature compensation. This miniature infrared gas sensor is developed by the tight integration of mature infrared absorbing gas detection technology, micro machine workout and superior circuit design.
It is convenient in use and also instead of catalytic component directly, widely used in various occasions with flammable and explosion hazard gas. 


Widely used for HVAC refrigeration, air monitoring indoor, industrial-process control and safety protection, agriculture and animal husbandry.

Technical Support:

Customized technical design and function, LOGO and package are available without extra charge (including molding fee) for mass volume.

The sensors don't have sleeping mode. It can be set in program if needed.

All Winsen products go through strict inspections and tests to make sure they are 100% qualified before shipping out.

The sensor has been fully tested (not calibrated) before leaving the factory. However, after transportation and storage, the environment conditions change, and the surface of the sensor absorbs moisture, mixed gas, pollution matters, etc. It is recommended that customers perform aging and calibration after sensors become stable according to the program and use occasions of the whole device.

15﹪-90﹪RH without condensation,greater or less than this range or long-term high temperature and high humidity will affect the life of the sensor.

Our sensors are certified with CE, 3C, ROHS, anti-explosion, fire prevention, and coal mining safety according to different applications. And we provide assistance for new certification.

Many factors can cause the sensor to fail such as broken wires in transportation, poisoning, falling off of the sensitive material, damage to the heating wire (device), etc. Please find specific cause in each category with Winsen’s aftersales.

Winsen provides professional consultation and service before and after sales. We will recommend the best fitting sensor for your demand. If you have any problem, don’t hesitate to email us to
