USCSM – wireless-based, solar-powered sensor module

by donpedro

Unitronic presents a wireless-based, solar-powered sensor module for continuous monitoring of the carbon monoxide (CO) concentration in various buildings and in industrial applications at SENSOR+TEST 2011 in Nuremberg (Germany) at Booth 638 in Hall 12.
The core of the Unitronic Solar CO Sensor Module (USCSM) is an innovative electrochemical carbon monoxide sensor in the shape of a standard AA battery, developed by Figaro – which meets both DIN EN 50 291 (Electrical apparatus for the detection of carbon monoxide in domestic premises) and Association of German Engineers (Verein Deutscher Ingenieure – VDI) guideline VDI 2053 (Air treatment systems for car parks) – and a STM 300 programmable, bidirectional wireless sensor module for 315 MHz or 868 MHz from EnOcean. The main sensor element operates without an external voltage supply – its energy supply is provided with the help of an electrochemical process. The carbon monoxide detector can thus be operated anywhere worldwide, fully independently of additional energy sources, wherever there are adequate light conditions for at least some of the time.
