World’s fastest battery-powered NDIR CO2 sensor

The new, ultra-fast SprintIR6S nondispersive infrared (NDIR) sensor for CO2 can take up to 20 readings per second, with a six-times faster response rate than the current SprintIR sensor. The ultra-fast response is particularly relevant to monitor that the correct levels of CO2 are being used. For example, in the food packaging industry, high levels of CO2 are used to keep food fresher for longer periods of time. On the production line, a sensor is needed to measure that the bags are being sealed with the correct level of CO2, which can be up to 100% concentration. The sensor must be able to work on small sample volumes and produce a result very quickly. The SprintIR6S needs less than 2 mL of sample gas. The sensor is available in measurement ranges from 0 to 100%. — Gas Sensing Solutions Ltd., Cumbernauld, Scotland
