Hydrogen Detection Systems Comparison Chart

Selecting a hydrogen detection system can be challenging, not to mention time consuming.  What options do you need, what certifications do you need to be compliant, do you need to come in under budget?  These are all worthy questions to consider, and we at NTM Sensors have tried to help you by doing some of the legwork ourselves and presenting this data to you in an easy to read chart.

We have looked at several other models of hydrogen sensors from other companies to see how our SenseH2 system compares.  By having research work done and all of the data in one location, we hope that this gives you more time to be productive with your daily tasks and to take some of the stress off of the process.

There are two distinct styles of systems offered in the market place, “remote” sensor placement and “on panel” sensor placement.


We compare our SenseH2 to four other leading models in the market place right now.  All data is taken from those manufacturer’s websites, or third party sites when the data was not available at the source.  We have taken steps to fairly represent the data listed, however some specifications on outside sites may be updated without us knowing.

We strongly believe that our SenseH2 Hydrogen Detection System compares favorably among the competition.  On price (and we know you are interested in this first) we come in at the lowest of all the systems that we looked at.  Our base system starts at $695 USD, with an option to add a second sensor in the future if you desire.  Our system also benefits from ease of purchase, you can order directly from our website and have the unit delivered very quickly to your location. Most other sensor manufacturers distribute their products on third party websites which are not as convenient to find, and harder to know the level of service that you will receive as you wait for a quote.

There are two distinct styles of systems offered in the market place, “remote” sensor placement and “on panel” sensor placement.  Our SenseH2 sensors have 25 foot cords that attach a separate sensor head where you need it most, such as the ceiling since hydrogen is lighter than air and will rise.  You can place the alarm box at eye level where it is convenient and still monitor the correct area of the room very easily.  With on panel sensor placement systems, you are forced to choose between convenience or best detection location.

Our sensor is selective to hydrogen and should not alarm in the presence of other gases.  We have a 1 year warranty for the sensor that covers replacement costs during normal operation.  And because nothing lasts forever we have a low replacement sensor price for when the sensor has seen its service lifetime, which depending on the application is expected to be around 5 years.
