Sensor monitors CO2 in schools

Sontay, CO2 sensor

Teaching staff in schools can easily monitor and maintain ventilation levels and indoor air quality using Sontay’s GS-CO2 range of carbon-dioxide, temperature and humidity and monitoring devices. Offering full Building Schools for the Future, Building Bulletin 1 (BB1) compliance, the GS-CO2 sensor series combines ease of operation with real-time monitoring and the ability to swiftly adjust CO2 levels.

The system comprises a easy-to-read 3-colour LCD display to indicate CO2 levels and alarm, alongside Sontay’s ABC continuous-calibration algorithm that adjusts the non-dispersive infra-red sensor to accommodate for drift prevalent in other types of sensor.

An optional communications interface enables these sensors to be connected to a building-management system.

These sensors come with a 2-year operational guarantee.
