For a fast and long termstableNon Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) technology of gas concentration measurement, the temperature compensation is required. A novel proposed Δ-Σ NDIR system was investigated and built with a closed-loop feedback system to stabilize the signal readings without temperature drift. The modulation of the infrared heater gives a corresponding signal of gas concentration based on our proposed Δ-Σ conversion algorithm that was affected by the drift of temperatures for the infrared sensor. For our study, a new temperature compensation model was built and verified that formulates the relationship between gas concentration and temperature of sensor. The results show that our proposed Δ-Σ can measure efficiently with half of the startup time than our previous design and maintain long term stability.
