GSS Announces High-Speed CO2 Sensor


NDIR LED-based sensor takes 50 readings per second

Gas Sensing Solutions (GSS), a UK-based maker of solid-state gas sensors, has launched a new ultra-high-speed CO₂ sensor. Called the SprintIR-R, it takes a reading every 20 milliseconds (50 readings per second), making it amongst the fastest solid-state CO2 sensors available.

The SprintIR-R is based on GSS proprietary solid-state non-dispersive infra-red (NDIR) LED technology, where the sensor measures concentration levels by analysing the amount of light absorbed by the CO2 gas. The ability to measure CO2 gas levels at unprecedented rates is due to a combination of GSS solid date detection technology with its inherent high response rate, and special optical design techniques.

The SprintIR-R sensor allows the user to measure CO2 levels in real-time with high accuracy. This capability enables designers to integrate CO2 measurement capability into new generations of equipment; healthcare professionals can monitor CO22 levels in patients' breath in real-time when using respiratory machines; or measure CO2 levels in food packaging on a production line where the gas is used to extend shelf-life.

Julian Hayes, CEO of Gas Sensing Solutions said: “GSS is delighted to offer this new high-speed CO₂ sensor to the market. The introduction of the SprintIR-R CO2 sensor enables our customers to take near real-time readings. This is essential for applications such as capnography and Modified Atmosphere Packaging where CO₂ levels are changing rapidly.”

The SprintIR-R is released to production. A customer evaluation kit is also available, enabling users to easily assess the performance of the SprintIR-R. Each kit contains a SprintIR-R CO₂ sensor, USB cable to connect to a PC and software to allow the user to control and configure the sensor.

AngelTech Online Summit - Tuesday 19th May

The health and well-being of AngelTech speakers, partners, employees and the overall community is our top priority. Due to the growing concern around the coronavirus (COVID-19), and in alignment with the best practices laid out by the CDC, WHO and other relevant entities, AngelTech decided to postpone the live Brussels event to 16th - 18th November 2020.

In the interim, we believe it is still important to connect the community and we want to do this via an online summit, taking place live on Tuesday May 19th at 12:00 GMT and content available for 12 months on demand. This will not replace the live event (we believe live face to face interaction, learning and networking can never be fully replaced by a virtual summit), it will supplement the event, add value for key players and bring the community together – digitally.

The event will involve 4 breakout sessions for CS International, PIC International, Sensors International and PIC Pilot Lines.

Key elements of the online summit:

  • Covering key topics of the industries
  • Live 3 hour online summit
  • 10 minute presentations – learn from experts in the industry
  • Recorded product demos
  • Live audience questions
  • Enhanced discussion and audience interaction
  • Video panel sessions
  • Sponsors digital booth (intro video, company content, lead generator, facilitate one on one video meetings with attendees)
  • Live private video meetings between two or more attendees
  • After the live event, monthly keynotes to drive traffic to the event 24/7, 365

Innovation is in AngelTech’s DNA and we are leveraging this strength to bring you an immersive and inspiring online event without the risk of travel during this uncertain period.
