The SprintIR®-6S-5 (formerly known as GC-0028) a high-speed CO2 sensor that can take up to 20 readings per second - 6x faster than the current SprintIR. Combined with the sensor board, it is suitable for applications where the capture of rapidly changing CO2 concentrations is required.


  • NDIR LED sensor measures up to 5% CO2
  • Solid-state, no moving parts
  • Fast response rate - 20 readings/second
  • Easy integration in healthcare, food packaging and scientific applications


  • CM-20301 Development Kit – Easy to use, simply plug the sensor board into your PC via the included serial UART to USB cable. Use our free GasLab® software to measure and graph carbon dioxide (CO2).
  • CM-20300 Sensor Board – Same functionality as the development kit without USB cable or software.

Gas Sensor Development Kit -  designed to seamlessly integrate with CO2Meter select gas sensors and provides customers with built-in pins for an easy drop-in solution. Also includes our free Gaslab data logging software.

CM-0032-6S/R - Custom USB cable enables communication to GasLab Software for Sensor Board and Development Kit.

Micro-Pump Kit includes all the tools you need to utilize the tube-cap adapters as part of a sampling sensor system.

Nafion Tubing is a highly selective, semi-permeable membrane to water vapor. If gases inside Nafion tubing are wetter than gases surrounding the tubing, drying will occur. If the surrounding gases are wetter, humidification will occur.

Micro Gas Sampling Pumps provide a constant flow of air across the sensor with a tube cap - perfect for bench-top testing of sensors for closed-loop sampling applications.

Stig Norder
Excellent service

The service provided by CO2meter shows that the supplier's specialization provides benefits for the customer. The documentation, program example, tips and application nots help a lot. Along with a fantastic delivery, it is a winner. I ordered on a Sunday and on Thursday four days later the parts were delivered to my door in a small town in Sweden.

"Easy to install, easy to set up, and easy calibration - just what I was looking for."
