Schneider Electric, the global specialist in energy management and automation, today announced the availability of a new CO2 sensor module for its SE8000 Series Room Controllers. The sensor detects CO2 levels in environments such as hotels, schools, office buildings, restaurants and more to help facility managers make changes to air quality to improve occupant comfort and create opportunities for energy savings.
The risks associated with high CO2 levels within building environments are significant. From an occupant standpoint, high instances of CO2 can induce lethargy, decrease productivity and in some instances lead to medical conditions such as fainting. For facilities managers, the sensor identifies opportunities to reduce air changes and adjust lighting and temperature settings when rooms are not occupied, which leads to significant energy savings. Additionally, the CO2 sensors can help building owners achieve LEED, BREEAM and Green Star certifications that promote their dedication to sustainability and attract and maintain tenants.
“Commercial spaces and small office buildings require a constant flow of fresh and conditioned air to create a healthy environment for people inside the building. Keeping a close eye on CO2 levels within buildings is a critical responsibility for today’s facility executives,” said Henry Zebrowski, Senior Offer Manager, EcoBuildings Division, Schneider Electric. “The new embedded CO2 module optimizes the level of fresh air flow within buildings so facility managers can focus on providing the optimum environment to increase comfort and productivity.”
Additional benefits of the CO2 sensor module include:
• Easy installation and configuration in minutes
• No external wiring required
• Automatic calibration to ensure extremely high accuracy
• Conforms to ASHRAE specifications for green building standards
• Achieves optimal ventilation and reduces stagnant air
• Adapts to a multitude of environments
• Requires no after service maintenance
• Low power consumption
Schneider Electric’s SE8000 Series Room Controllers provide the distinctive advantage of integrating a thermostat/temperature sensor and programmable room controller in a single unit. The room controllers are designed with a highly customizable surface that works in a variety of environments and decors including offices, retail stores, schools, hotels and more. The room controllers deliver all the comfort and control functionality found in multi-component (DDC) systems, but in a small, easy-to-install package.
