For many customers looking to monitor carbon dioxide between 0-10% (0-100,000ppm) they typically are looking at measuring CO2 for safety or biological applications.
For 10 percent CO2 sensing, we often recommendedSenseair's K30 10% CO2 Sensor. This sensor is designed to monitor high levels of carbon dioxide found in storage tanks or laboratory applications. This sensor also provides flexible analog and digital outputs, creating the ideal low-cost solution for OEMs looking at CO2 safety alarms or leak detector builds.
What CO2 sensor has the highest longevity?
When it comes to longevity, NDIR CO2 sensors are known to have the longest-lasting technology currently on the market. While other sensors such as electrochemical or semiconductor sensors are also quite durable, they are still behind the curve when it comes to lasting 10-15 years or more like the NDIR.
What is the average life expectancy of a sensor?
For NDIR CO2 Sensors that measure carbon dioxide gases, the typical lifespan is usually between 10-15 years. When it comes to monitoring gases like oxygen, carbon monoxide, or hydrogen the use of electrochemical sensors is chosen and these last around 2-3 years.
