Senseair releases new sensing module for advanced CO2 indoor air quality monitoring

Düsseldorf, Tokyo and New York – March 25, 2024 – Senseair, a subsidiary of Asahi Kasei Microdevices Corporation (AKM), has announced the launch of the Senseair S88. The S88 is an accurate, compact, and maintenance-free CO2 sensing module that is ideal for indoor air quality monitoring and building automation control across a variety of environments.
The S88 uses non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) technology for CO2 detection and features Senseair“s proprietary Automatic Baseline Correction (ABC). The ABC algorithm constantly tracks measurement deviations, enhancing long-term accuracy and reliability without the need for 3rd party interaction with the sensor. The S88″s compact form factor (8.7 x 33.9 x 19.8mm), 15+ year life expectancy, and maintenance-free approach make it a good fit for industrial environments where space and accessibility can present a challenge. Similarly, the S88 is pin-compatible with other popular Senseair products and some competing solutions, eliminating the need for costly re-design efforts.
The S88 has high precision across a wide measurement range (400 ppm to 10,000 ppm), making it suitable for various applications. It also features an operating temperature range of <50 and a humidity range of <85% RH. The S88 module“s high accuracy aligns with the latest standards (ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 62.1-2022 Addendum ab) set by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE), RESET grade B, and WELL Building Standard® (WELL v2™).
Senseair will begin mass production of the S88 in April of 2024. To learn more about the S88, visit https://senseair.com/product/s88
