Title:
ABSORPTIOMETRIC SENSOR
Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JPH01189547
Kind Code:
A
Abstract:
PURPOSE:To reduce a drift of an output from a light-sensing element to be small sufficiently and thereby to lessen a measuring error, by providing the light-sensing element with a glass heater and by keeping it at a prescribed temperature by using a temperature regulator. CONSTITUTION:A sensor is equipped with a transparent cell 2 in which a liquid 1 to be measured is put. A light emitted from a high-luminance lamp 6 provided in a case of a light-emitting unit 5 set in close contact with one side of the cell 2 passes through an optical filter 7 and then through the liquid 1 in the cell 2. On the other side of the cell 2, a light-sensing unit 8 is set in a position opposite to the light-emitting element 5, and the light passing through the liquid 1 to be measured is introduced thereinto. A light-sensing element 9 is provided in a case of the light-sensing unit 8, and a glass heater 10 is provided in front of the light-sensing element 9. The glass heater 10 has a glass substrate 11 and a transparent SnO2 film 12 and generates a heat under the impression of a voltage by a DC power source 13. The DC power source 13 is connected with a temperature regulator 14 and the set temperature thereof is set at a desired temperature according to the temperature of the liquid 1 to be measured which passes through the cell 2. Thereby the light-sensing element 9 is kept invariably at a prescribed temperature.
