Hot off the press, Eupry have just announced this month a CO2 data logger which will be added to their range in January 2021. This is exciting news for us here at Henderson Biomedical, as this will complement the temperature and humidity that their current data loggers can monitor. In this month’s blog, we take a closer look at CO2 monitoring and take a sneak peek at Eupry’s new data logger.
CO2 is the chemical formula for Carbon dioxide. CO2 is an invisible and odourless gas (at low levels) which forms a part of the earth’s atmosphere. Humans convert oxygen into CO2 when we breathe. The natural concentration of CO2 in the air is around 0.04%. A concentration higher than this can result in headaches, drowsiness and loss of concentration. Quantities of 10% or more can result in death.
Exposure to high levels of CO2 for an extended period of time is harmful to health. Therefore, many users may wish to monitor the CO2 for health and safety reasons. Storage areas and workspaces may need to be monitored to ensure the safety of staff, especially in areas where CO2 is being emitted. Laboratories may wish to monitor CO2 to grow tissue cultures in an incubator. Indeed, if CO2 level do start to reach dangerous levels, then users will want to be alerted immediately to this. This is where Eupry’s CO2 data logger comes into play.
Much like Eupry’s temperature and humidity data loggers, their CO2 data loggers can alert users by SMS, email or phone call. The time it takes from when the CO2 reaches a dangerous level to when you receive an alert is around 20 seconds. The Eupry CO2 data loggers have an accuracy of +/- 30ppm + 3%. Overall, Eupry’s CO2 data loggers can monitor between 400 and 10,000 ppm of CO2.
Eupry’s CO2 data logger plugs into one of their regular data loggers, much in the same way that their temperature probe plugs into a standard temperature data logger. It is expected that the CO2 data logger works much in the same way as other Eupry products in that users lease the logger for a minimum period of 36 months.
Users will still be able to access Eupry’s online portal and data will be stored in the cloud in the usual way. It is a useful addition to their range and will see them directly compete with the likes of Testo and Rotronic.
Henderson Biomedical is the UK distributor of Eupry. We have already introduced Eupry to a number of organisations throughout the UK, to help them monitor temperature and sometimes humidity as well. Our team is already very familiar with Eupry’s current range of data loggers and we can send you a free-of-charge, no obligation demo logger for you to trial.
