Senseair K30, Vaisala CMM222C, ELT S100, KCD AN100 and GE Sensing T6615 Sensor Comparison

In a side-by-side comparison of low-cost NDIR sensors to measure outdoor carbon dioxide levels, the SenseAir K30 Sensor was selected as the most accurate over the Vaisala CMM222C, ELT Company S100, Korean Digital Company (KCD) AN100 and GE Sensing T6615 CO2 Sensors. The detailed comparison was published in the article "Comparison of the Characteristics of Small Commercial NDIR CO2 Sensor Models and Development of a Portable CO2 Measurement Device" in the MDPI Open Access Journals Platform. The authors wrote the article as the result of a study to determine if low cost NDIR CO2 sensors could be easily calibrated and...

CO2Meter Sensor Used in University Atmospheric Project

Kansas Wesleyan University Microburst Club, in conjunction with the Math and Physics clubs, recently sent up a weather balloon to measure atmospheric conditions at high altitudes. Unlike previous launches, this high altitude balloon's payload contained a carbon dioxide sensor provided by co2meter.com. The balloon was launched on May 7, 2011 at 8:05 am. The payload contained the carbon dioxide (CO2) sensor, a global positioning (GPS) tracker, a data logger, a temperature probe, and HAM radio equipment to send tracking information to the ground chase crews. As the balloon ascended into the atmosphere, the students received live data from both the...

CO2Meter.com Creates Modified Atmospheric Packaging Sensor Array

The high speed K30FS and COZIR CO2 sensors are both capable of measuring CO2 levels every 0.5 seconds. But recently, an OEM client asked if we could sample even faster. The application is called modified atmospheric processing, or MAP.  MAP technologies are used throughout the food and pharmaceutical industries. For example, MAP is used to replace the atmosphere inside pill bottles with CO2 before sealing. Each bottle is filled, sealed against oxygen and tested for leakage at sub-second intervals on high-speed production lines. It is also used in meat and produce packaging, where oxygen is replaced with a combination of...
