CO2 Sensor Unveil At AHR EXPO

Responding to market demands for more compact, slimline devices, Gas Sensing Solutions is launching a new CO2 sensor aimed at Building Control, HVAC, IAQ and DCV applications at the forthcoming AHR EXPO running from 30 Jan – 1 February in Las Vegas.

A smaller version of GSS’ current CoZIR®-A, the CoZIR®-LP is the latest generation of this hugely popular product and is fully compatible with the existing device.

CoZIR®-LP’s physical volume is 85% less than the envelope of the current sensor and as with all GSS CO2 sensors it uses SmartIR LED-based technology, allowing for simplified systems and a robust design.

Just like size, power matters, especially for remote “Internet of Things” infrastructure. Operating at a speedy 2 samples/second, the CoZIR®-LP requires a miserly 3mW of sustained power and equally important, a peak pulse current of only 33mA – addressing the major Achilles heel of CO2 sensors in the current-limited environment typical of sensing applications, particularly those which are battery powered.

In fact, the new CoZIR®-LP can be supported by a compact low energy density battery, negating the need for larger batteries and supercapacitors.

Grant Notman, who was recently appointed as Business Development Director at GSS comments;

“With the advent of smart cities and increasing environmental awareness, the monitoring and control of CO2 has become a key green issue. Architects and building managers are now specifying elegant, thin sensor enclosures for consumer/public structures so the CoZIR®-LP, with a height of less than 8mm, provides the ideal CO2 sensor solution.”

Ralph Weir, who took over the role of CEO at GSS in December, adds:

“This new sensor release represents the next node of the evolving GSS leadership CO2 sensor roadmap and offers an ideal upgrade path for space sensitive and evolving battery powered wireless applications. We have a culture of constant innovation at GSS and CoZIR®-LP is effectively “version 3.5”.

“With every iteration, we try to improve every possible facet – this is a far more streamlined design, losing none of the performance whilst adding a greater flexibility for our customers who are seeking ever smaller components. We are hugely looking forward to launching it at AHR Expo this week – you can find GSS at booth C1072.”

AHR Expo, which started 85 years ago as a heating and ventilation show, has grown into the HVACR event of the year and is held in major cities across the U.S.

The 2017 Show will be in Las Vegas, hosting more than 2,000 exhibitors and attracting crowds of 60,000 industry professionals from every state in America and 150 countries worldwide.

It provides a unique forum designed expressly for the HVACR community, allowing professionals to get together to share new products, technologies and ideas.

If you would like to arrange a time to see the new CoZIR®-LP at the AHR Expo in Las Vegas, please get in touch. Alternatively, registration at the show is free until 25th January, so CLICK HERE to claim your free ticket.
