New High-Speed CO2 Sensor from Gas Sensing Solutions

SprintIR®-R CO2 sensor has 50Hz measurement rate

 

15 April 2020 – Cumbernauld, UK:  Gas Sensing Solutions, a pioneer in solid-state gas sensors, has launched a new ultra-high-speed CO₂ sensor.  The SprintIR®-R takes a reading every 20 milliseconds, making it amongst the fastest solid-state CO2 sensors available today.

 

The SprintIR®-R sensor allows the user to measure CO2 levels in real-time with high accuracy.  This capability enables designers to integrate CO2 measurement capability into new generations of equipment; healthcare professionals can monitor CO2 levels in patients’ breath in real-time when using respiratory machines; or measure CO2 levels in food packaging on a production line where the gas is used to extend shelf-life.

 

The SprintIR®-R is based on GSS proprietary solid-state non-dispersive infra-red (NDIR) LED technology, where the sensor measures concentration levels by analysing the amount of light absorbed by the CO2 gas.   The ability to measure CO2 gas levels at unprecedented rates is due to a combination of GSS solid date detection technology with its inherent high response rate, and special optical design techniques.

 

Julian Hayes, CEO of Gas Sensing Solutions said “GSS is delighted to offer this new high-speed CO₂ sensor to the market.  The introduction of the SprintIR®-R CO2 sensor enables our customers to take near real-time readings.  This is essential for applications such as capnography and Modified Atmosphere Packaging where CO₂ levels are changing rapidly.”

 

The SprintIR®-R is released to production.  A customer evaluation kit is also available, enabling users to easily assess the performance of the SprintIR®-R.  Each kit contains a SprintIR®-R CO₂ sensor, USB cable to connect to a PC and software to allow the user to control and configure the sensor.

GSS EvaluatIR-A in hand

Gas Sensing Solutions Expands Product Portfolio with EvaluatIR

GSS EvaluatIR-A in handCumbernauld, UK: Gas Sensing Solutions has today announced the launch of the new EvaluatIR range of CO2 evaluation kits. The EvaluatIR-A and EvaluatIR-M evaluation kits provide users with a convenient way to evaluate GSS CO2 sensor technology in an easy-to-use battery powered package.

The EvaluatIR range has been designed with the user in mind. The kit, which is RoHS compliant, is easily configurable via a PC based interface, and measurements can be stored for subsequent analysis. The EvaluatIR-A allows measurement of CO2 over a 0-1% range and the EvaluatIR-M over a 0-20% or 0-100% range.

In addition to CO2 levels, both the EvaluatIR-A and EvaluatIR-M are also capable of recording pressure, temperature and relative humidity and provide a time and date stamp.  The power consumption of the evaluation kit is user configurable, enabling the 2 x AA batteries to last for 12 months.

Julian Hayes, CEO of GSS said “We are delighted to be launching the EvaluatIR range of evaluation kits to market. They allow our customers to evaluate our low-power solid state mid Infra-Red LED CO2 sensor technology, typically as a precursor to incorporation of one of our CO2 sensors in their own equipment.  Use of the kit speeds up the evaluation process and reduces time-to-market for our customers.”

 

The EvaluatIR range is available to order from today. For more information, or to order an EvaluatIR Evaluation kit, please visit www.gassensing.co.uk.

GAS SENSING SOLUTIONS - new Blink sensor banner

Gas Sensing Solutions Launch a Revolutionary New Low Power CO2 Sensor to Market

Cumbernauld-based Gas Sensing Solutions (GSS) continue their rapid international expansion plan by creating the lowest power CO2 sensor on the market – The CozIR-Blink. This comes just 3 months after the successful launch of 2 new sensors in June of this year.

 

The technology firm will begin taking orders for the CozIR-Blink from today (26 September 2019) through their website, or via telephone and email enquiries. This exclusive product is only available to order directly from the manufacturer.

 

The CozIR-Blink is a revolutionary addition to the GSS product line. The CozIR-Blink is designed to be powered down completely between measurements. This enables customers to individually manage the power consumption based on their needs and application. The sensor can be turned on when a reading is required and then turned completely off when not in use. Additionally, the CozIR-Blink features both Digital (UART) and I2C Interface output and is capable of taking measurements of up to 1% CO2 concentration.

 

Founded in 2006, GSS has produced CO2 sensors for a variety of applications including healthcare, industrial safety, aerospace and food processing in markets across the globe. In the past 12 months the business has doubled its production capacity.

 

GSS Strategic Projects Director, John Fuller, said: “We are delighted to launch this new and innovative product to our line of low power carbon dioxide sensors. Our market research indicated that our customers – particularly those in HVAC and IAQ applications – really need a low power sensor that excels over what is already on the market. With the CozIR-Blink, users are able to not only configure the power consumption of the sensor based on their needs, but the ability to switch the sensor off completely between measurements allows for the sensor to run off a 3.6v lithium cell battery for 10 plus years.”
