Aircraft cabin quality remains firmly on the agenda, with increasing concern about the health impact on passengers and crew. Cabin air quality is required to meet certain health and safety regulations, and improved in-flight comfort is increasingly demanded of airlines. Continuous monitoring and control of CO2 levels is therefore required to maintain safety standards.
Our sensors are robust enough to accurately measure CO2 levels when exposed to in-flight conditions, as an integral part of your air quality management system. The sensors are built to endure changes and extremes in pressure, temperature, and relative humidity.
Wireless systems are now a reality, since our sensors are low power enough to be battery operated. With no cables to worry about, systems can be quickly installed in any desired area, with minimal disruption. Your system could even be a portable, handheld or wearable instrument, as our miniature sensors fit inside very compact products.
Our solid-state CO2 sensors have been successfully used in aerospace markets for many years. Typical applications we’ve supplied include: in cabin air quality safety and monitoring for aircraft and vehicles; data loggers for aerospace; and solutions for IoT (Internet of Things) projects. Then there’s the more weird and wonderful applications we’ve done, such as CO2 sensors for spaceships!
Typically, we would recommend our CozIR® range of CO2 sensors when measuring low (or ambient) levels of CO2 for cabin air quality requirements. CozIR® sensors are up to 50X lower power than typical infrared CO2 sensors, and can last over ten years with low maintenance. Please see our CozIR® sensors here.
However, our ExplorIR® range of robust CO2 sensors may be more suitable for higher CO2 concentration applications. ExplorIR® sensors reliably measure CO2 levels in harsh environments, up to 100% concentration. This includes being exposed to pressure changes and vibration. Please see our ExplorIR® sensors here.
The exact sensor required depends on what you want to use it for, the operating conditions, and any special features desired. If the above sensors do not meet your requirements, you can use our product selector to specify your exact requirements.
