Interest in indoor air quality significantly increased during the COVID pandemic and has continued to be an important focus. Although there is not a global standard to determine and define what constitutes clean indoor air, it is globally agreed upon that maintaining good indoor air quality is a priority especially for health and comfort.
of Americans’ time is spent indoors
more air pollutants indoors; compared to outdoors
of buildings have poor air quality
In the US, poor air quality is responsible for more than 125 million lost school days and 10 million lost work days each year
As indoor air sensor technology evolves and is more widely incorporated in equipment, appliances and other devices that measure, record or display the concentration of certain pollutants or environmental conditions, the management of indoor air quality is improved.
Such as carbon monoxide alarms and smoke detectors when concentrations of carbon monoxide or components of smoke reach levels that indicate the potential for immediate danger to life.
Such as levels of a targeted pollutant or microscopic particles of solid or liquid materials suspended in air, i.e., particulate matter (PM).
By continuously monitoring HVAC systems and performing preventative maintenance, which can significantly reduce energy consumption while maintaining optimal indoor air quality.
In equipment, appliances, or other devices such as turning on an air purifier when pollutant concentrations or environmental conditions exceed a pre-defined level.
Several billion dollars in federal funds allocated to improve indoor air quality
90,000 CO2 sensors were installed in 48,000 classrooms across Quebec
Created a “ventilation plan” and is working to place CO2 meters in every public room
300,000 CO2 monitors have been purchased by schools
Investing 500 million euros to improve ventilation systems
Classrooms are equipped with air purifiers including CO2 monitors
Renesas sensors and sensor solutions offer outstanding design and reliability. Using technological intelligence, the company aspires to raise the bar when it comes to sensor technology. Doing so helps people and companies achieve sustainability, efficiency, good health, safety and quality of life. Renesas Electronics RT60/120 Thermopile Detectors provide low-cost high output sensing solutions housed in a TO-5 package. The detectors have a time constant of 25ms with Nitrogen encapsulation gas. The devices deliver a very low -0.04%/C temperature coefficient of responsivity. These detectors have a very short thermal shock response to ambient temperature change.
