trinamiX enables miniaturization of CO2 measurement systems for mobile air quality monitoring and capnography
trinamiX GmbH, a leader in 3D imaging and infrared sensing technologies, announced the company’s proprietary lead selenide (PbSe) near-infrared detectors can be effectively integrated into challenging applications for carbon dioxide (CO2) measurement. Those include medical breath gas analysis (capnography) and mobile air quality monitoring.
Due to their fast response time and high detectivity, the detectors enable extremely accurate yet miniaturized CO2 measurements.
By employing trinamiX PbSe detectors, CO2 concentration measurement systems can become 8 times smaller than currently available systems without compromising on accuracy and even reducing power consumption by a factor of 16. Thus, smartphones and wearables can now be equipped with real-time CO2 monitoring to track air quality at home, in the office or while travelling.
CO2 measurement systems use Non-Dispersive Infrared (NDIR) spectroscopy to non-invasively detect gas concentrations. trinamiX provides design-in support for the manufacturers of such systems.
