Revolutionary increase in battery safety with MPS™ sensors

MSR-Electronic GmbH introduces the ground-breaking MPS™ sensor, which takes the safety of lithium-ion batteries to a new level.


The state-of-the-art Molecular Property Spectrometer (MPS™) sensor detects dangerous battery outgassing at an early stage and thus enables proactive safety measures to be taken.

Thermal Runaway and its dangers.

Lithium-ion batteries have become an integral part of electric vehicles and battery containers. However, in the event of failure or damage, a "thermal runaway" can occur - a condition in which the battery overheats and releases dangerous gases such as dimethyl carbonate (DMC) and ethyl methyl carbonate (EMC) is released. These gas emissions are critical indicators of impending safety risks.

Early detection of proactive security measures.

The MPS™ sensor detects DMC and EMC with high accuracy, enabling early identification of potential hazards. This allows timely action to be taken and the risk to be minimised, significantly improving the safety of battery applications.


Safety advantage through advanced technology.

Thanks to the innovative technology of the MPS™ sensor, the monitoring and maintenance of batteries is revolutionised:

  • Long lifetime (15+ years)
  • High-precision detection of gases during degassing processes
  • High Accuracy, Linearity and Repeatability
  • Integrated environmental compensation
  • Integrated self-tests and error management
  • Perfect adaptation to any application thanks to initialisation when switching on
  • Resistant to poisoning

A decisive step for the future.

The MPS™ sensor represents a significant advance in battery safety. With its ability to detect critical gases at an early stage, it ensures a higher level of safety and helps to prevent hazards. This technology is a decisive step for the future of safe battery applications.
