SprintIR-R - High Speed CO₂ Sensor with High Accuracy and Real-time Readings
Gas Sensing Solutions (GSS) has launched SprintIR-R, a new ultra-high-speed CO₂ sensor that allows the user to measure CO₂ levels in real-time with high accuracy. SprintIR-R takes a reading every 20 milliseconds, making it amongst the fastest solid-state CO₂ sensors. This capability enables designers to integrate CO₂ measurement capability into new generations of equipment like 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 analyzing 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 fitted with a standard flow-through adaptor so the CO₂ gas can be passed over the optical sensor at high speed. Other customized adaptors are also possible depending on the installation requirements.
