New Data Logger Offers Cost-effective CO2 Monitoring

23 November 2011

Gemini Data Loggers, manufacturers of the Tinytag range, has announced the launch of a new dedicated indoor CO2 logger.

Building on the Tinytag reputation for ease of use and reliability, the CO2 logger is accurate, cost-effective and ideally suited to applications such as building monitoring, where it can play a key role in helping to verify that ventilation systems are performing correctly.

The CO2 logger uses a self-calibrating infrared sensor to determine carbon dioxide concentrations. To give high accuracy, the sensor compensates for the aging of the infrared source to ensure outstanding long term stability. The discreet unit is mains powered and designed to be positioned unobtrusively where required for effective monitoring throughout a building or installation. A flashing red LED light on the unit indicates if there has been an interruption to the power supply.

There is a growing awareness in the UK and throughout Europe of the need to monitor carbon dioxide levels within buildings to help determine indoor air quality, with recommended guidelines in place for specific premises such as schools. Monitoring CO2 levels enables the necessary steps to be taken to maintain optimum air quality, identifying under-ventilated areas – the source of most air quality complaints – and enabling corrective action to be taken for the comfort and wellbeing of those inside. Areas with poor ventilation can lead to a build-up in carbon dioxide levels which can cause reduced concentration levels in occupants and in some cases can lead to health problems. The logger will also help identify energy saving options in over-ventilated spaces.

Data from the CO2 logger is downloaded to a PC via a USB connection and viewed using the easy to use Tinytag Explorer software, with data clearly presented as graphs and tables. Users are able to set a desired upper ppm (parts per million) concentration limit which will trigger the flashing red LED light if this level is reached. If required, data used together with that from loggers monitoring other environmental parameters can help provide an integrated overview of building monitoring.

The CO2 logger is competitively priced: the standard unit is a 0-2000ppm version costing £350 (excl VAT) including mains adaptor, cable and software. This is suitable for most building monitoring applications. For more specialised situations a 0-5000ppm version is also available.
