NOx sensor control circuit unit and NOx sensor system using the same










Image Number 13 for United States Patent #6635161.

A control circuit unit which enables an existing NOx sensor to serve not only as an NOx sensor but also as an oxygen concentration sensor by attachment to an existing NOx sensor. A control circuit unit 31 is connected to an NOx sensor 1. A first pump element control circuit 56 controls a voltage applied to a first pump element 3 so as to control the partial pressure of oxygen in a first processing chamber 9 such that an output voltage of an oxygen concentration detection element becomes substantially constant. A first pump current is detected using a current detection resistor 101 and is then output via an A/D converter circuit 65. A second pump element control circuit 57 applies a constant voltage to a second pump element 5 in a direction so as to pump out oxygen from a second processing chamber 10. A second pump current is detected using a current detection resistor 107 and is then output via an A/D converter circuit 65. A detection signal indicative of the first pump current is used for determining the oxygen concentration of a measurement gas. The detection signal indicative of the first pump current and a detection signal indicative of the second pump current are used for determining the NOx concentration of the measurement gas.
