ExplorIR®-M 5% CO2 Sensor
The ExplorIR®-M (formerly known as MinIR) CO2 sensor brings solid state electronics to NDIR CO2 sensors.
ExplorIR®-M uses LEDs to deliver ultra-low power and rugged/vibration-resistant performance. Combined with the MX board, it provides full-featured capability for industrial, scientific, engineering or OEM applications.
- NDIR LED Sensor Measures 5% CO2
- MX Board includes Barometric Pressure, Temperature and % Relative Humidity Sensors
- Durable, low power consumption, and miniature format
- Reliable to measure CO2 levels in rough, harsh environments
- MX Board adds RS485 Industry-standard Interface
- Ideal for battery powered applications
- Easy Integration; Compact & Low Power
CM-40331 Development Kit – Easy to use, simply plug the MX Board into your PC via USB. Use our free GasLab® software to measure and graph carbon dioxide, barometric pressure, temperature, and % relative humidity. Includes on-board memory for data logging.
CM-40330 MX Board – Same functionality as the development kit without USB cable or software.
GC-0024 Sensor Only – for integration into high-volume OEM products.
