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.
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.

“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.”
