CO2 monitor

Sufficient ventilation is a very effective method to prevent the spread of disease, to increase labor productivity and to prevent the accumulation of harmful particles. By continuously measuring the CO2-level in the air, you know when it is time to bring in more outside air or to close the windows in case of calamities.

This is how a CO2 meter works

People breathe in oxygen (O2) and breathe out carbon dioxide (CO2)
Insufficient refreshment with outside air increases the CO2 content in the room
Our CO2 meters measure the CO2 content in the air and indicate via a color scale when it enters the danger zone

CO2 measurement and COVID-19

Good ventilation is an important measure against the spread of the corona virus and various other germs. In any case, it is important to allow sufficient fresh air to flow into rooms where many people come together. Among other things, it promotes the ability to concentrate.

Now that the winter months are approaching, the attention for CO2 meters is increasing. The windows will no longer be ajar as standard and everyone will be inclined to keep the cold air out as much as possible.

With the ever-ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and studies showing that ventilation helps against the transmission of the virus, it is imperative to have an alert system that indicates if additional ventilation is necessary.

Measuring CO2

Whether a room is sufficiently ventilated can easily be determined by measuring the CO2 content in the air. People exhale CO2 and if there is insufficient air exchange in the room, the CO2 content will rise. CO2 is also released during combustion processes.

The CO2 content in the air is a good indicator of air quality. Too high a CO2 content in a room means that you have to ventilate more with outside air for a healthy living environment.
