Safety

Gases can be lethal

Image right

CO2 and some other gases are odorless and at a certain level they might kill you. There have been deaths due to leaking CO2 from tanks providing the gas to soda machines. Therefore, there are laws and restrictions (in some countries) connected to tanks where people work with the gas. Carbon Dioxide can easily be mixed up with Carbon Monoxide (CO). There is also a confusion about what gas to look for, for instance todays cars emit more CO2 than CO, we strongly recommend that CO2 must be monitored as well as CO in parking houses. Carbon Dioxide in itself is not poisonous, but it decreases the concentration of oxygen when in the same confined space. Our sensors are able to detect other gases but so far you will find a lot of alarm applications sensing CO2.

 

% instead of PPM

If you just learned what ppm stands for it might be confusing that the alarm world talks about %. Since alarms usually work with high levels of concentration, ppm figures become large to handle.

100%=1000.000ppm

1%=10.000 ppm

So how do we translate the % to the alarm world?

Fresh air contains 0,04% CO2. When CO2 rises to 1,5% (15000 ppm) you may react with increased heart rate and at 4 %  (40000ppm) you are in immediate danger.

Adaptable platforms

Most of our OEM customers need  ready to install products and solutions. You will find your solutions on one of five Adaptable Platforms where we can start our journey together. You can buy our sensors as stand alone (Sensor Core), mounted on a pcb (Sensor onBoard) with other functions such as communication, power and other sensors.

You will also find that we have extended warranties when we deliver white label casing (Sensor inCase) with all functions.
