ExplorIR®-M CO2 Sensor
ExplorIR®-M (formerly known as MinIR) is a robust, low power, CO2 sensor in miniature format. Its compact design enables easy integration into gas monitoring and detection systems.
The sensor is built to reliably measure CO2 levels in harsh environments, up to 100% concentration. This includes applications exposed to varying degrees of pressure, and high vibration conditions.
Its low power requirement also makes it ideal for battery powered systems, including portable, wearable and self-powered applications.
ExplorIR®-M is built on our unique patented LED technology platform and optical designs. It’s this solid-state technology that enables best-in-class power consumption, lifetime and durability.
