This sensor measures the CO2 levels and volatile organic compounds in the air surrounding the sensor. Those measurements enable you to monitor the air quality inside your buildings, data centers, server rooms, healthcare facilities and other critical facilities.
Inadequate indoor air quality has an impact on the wellbeing of employees, residents. High CO2 levels may lead to sickness, headaches or lower activity levels; all impacting productivity.
Outdoor the normal CO2 levels are around 350 to 450ppm. Indoor CO2 levels should be at least 350ppm and not more than 1,000ppm. Above 1,000ppm air quality is considered poor and cause complaints of drowsiness. Above 2,000ppm it may cause headaches, loss of attention.
High levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) inside buildings may have direct result in a variety of complaints of the eye, skin, throat irritation, nausea, headaches, lower activity and more. The harmfulness of VOC depends on the type of compound and its toxic properties. In the event of TVOC issues, inspections should be carried out to find the root cause of the problem and address it as exposure to the VOCs may harm health.
Indoor VOC levels up to 350 ppb are acceptable. However they should not exceed 500ppb.
