Blowing on a CO2 Sensor Produced Unexpected Results

Blowing on a CO2 Sensor Produced Unexpected Results

                Experimenting with the SprintIR 60% CO2 Sensor A client was having trouble getting correct readings with our SprintIR 60% CO2 sensor. They were attempting to use the sensor to read exhaled carbon dioxide in an application similar to capnography, but were getting unexpected results.         To test the sensor, the client was breathing directly on the sensor and graphing the CO2 levels in real time using our GasLab® software. The software reported that the sensor peak readings were flat (see red lines). After verifying the sensor was not damaged, the client...
