CO2 monitoring system to reduce the risk of COVID-19 contamination

Fresh indoor air reduces the risk of COVID-19 contaminations. Sentera HVAC sensors check whether there is sufficient fresh air supply. In addition to the traffic light indication that is standard available on the CO2 sensors, an additional display can be added. The measurements can be visualised via this optional 5-inch touchscreen.
CO2 monitoring system to reduce the risk of COVID-19 contamination

Why is fresh air supply important?
The risk of becoming infected with the COVID-19 virus is higher in crowded and poorly ventilated spaces. Transmission of COVID-19 via aerosols rarely occurs outdoor or in enclosed spaces with a large volume. The general recommendation is to deactivate indoor air recirculation of the ventilation system, to increase the supply rate of fresh air and the extraction rate of stale air. The ventilation system should remain active on continuous basis.

Why to monitor air quality?
When many people share a limited space, TVOC and CO2 concentrations will increase rapidly. Just like the risk of spreading COVID-19 virus particles. Long before occupants will perceive bad air quality or lack of ventilation, the Sentera climate monitoring system will alert you to increase ventilation or to open the window. Now that the vaccination rate is increasing everywhere, catering establishments, cinemas, fitness centres, etc. are reopening. To ensure safety in crowded, closed spaces, the use of CO2 sensors is recommended. In addition to sensors that provide an immediate indication of air quality, air quality logging is also becoming more and more common. It offers the possibility to evaluate the air quality after a busy period and to take corrective measures if necessary.

Sentera Climate monitoring system
Sentera CO2 sensors and TVOC (air quality) sensors work stand-alone. They are available with different supply voltages and in different housings. Sentera sensors can communicate with each other via the Modbus RTU protocol. It is possible to add a 5-inch color display to visualise the measurements of the connected HVAC sensors. Another option is the internet gateway. Via the Sentera internet gateway the sensors can be connected to SenteraWeb - the online HVAC portal. This offers the possibility to view the measured values remotely via the internet. Data logging is also possible via SenteraWeb. Parameter settings can be changed remotely and there is the option to receive alerts and notifications in case a threshold value is exceeded.

How to guarantee sufficient fresh air supply in existing buildings? Sufficient fresh air supply is not only important for the feeling of well-being and for optimal functioning - it is also essential for your health. In closed indoor spaces, sufficient ventilation is necessary to minimise the risk of spreading the Coronavirus. Providing ventilation in existing buildings is, however, not always easy. Therefore exhaust ventilation can be a good solution in many cases. >>>
