We’re all becoming more aware of the harmful effects of rising CO2 levels on our health. To this end, monitoring air quality in buildings and enclosed spaces is becoming a necessity. As well as safeguarding health and productivity, increased efficiency and rising energy costs are key market drivers. Legislation in certain parts of the world is also driving change, both in the home and the workplace.
Our CO2 sensors provide a reliable early warning of rising CO2 levels, as an integral part of your HVAC or air quality monitoring system. Wireless HVAC and air quality 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 air quality and HVAC markets for well over a decade. Typical applications we’ve supplied include: solutions for IoT (Internet of Things) projects; health and safety measures in schools; air quality management in homes; DCV (demand controlled ventilation) and ‘smart building’ projects in offices; and wearable safety solutions for pub cellars. Then there’s the more weird and wonderful applications we’ve worked on, such as CO2 sensors for caves, and energy harvesting collaborations.
Typically, we would recommend our CozIR® range of low power CO2 sensors for air quality and HVAC applications, when measuring low (or ambient) levels of CO2. 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® sensor products listed here.
The exact sensor required depends on what you want to use it for, the operating conditions, and any special features desired. If the CozIR® sensors do not meet your requirements, you can use our product selector to specify your exact requirements.
