Fuel Cell vs. Semiconductor
There has been some confusion about the differences in accuracy between systems based on fuel cells and semiconductors. Broadly speaking, units that use semiconductor sensing technology are strongly marketed at suspiciously low prices by retailers and on the internet. As the sensor is based in a small, cheap metal oxide bead which changes electrical current throughput to detect alcohol.
The drawback is that they are inaccurate and unreliable, often being unable to distinguish between alcohol and other volatile substances (even hairspray, petrol and cigarette smoke). Semiconductors are easily rendered inaccurate and have a short service life. Semiconductors can only be trusted for passive detection and reveal a possible presence of alcohol but not its concentration. Their readings have no meaning in a legal context and are not suitable for evidentiary use. On the other hand, breath testing units fitted with fuel cell technology meet the high standard required for law enforcement, industrial/commercial and personal use.
Alcolizer AOD detection instruments are based on fuel cell technology where user breath comes into contact with dual platinum electrodes. The alcohol is oxidized, creating an electrical current which increases according to the amount of alcohol present. The readings are reliable and precise, giving unrivalled and proven accuracy to legal standards. Units fitted with fuel cell technology are alcohol-specific and hold their calibration far longer than semiconductor-based units. Fuel cells last longer and in the long run are more cost-effective as they have a trouble-free service life.
