A recent study released by BP indicates that global demand for energy is expected to rise by 37% from 2013 to 2035 in spite of recent volatility in energy markets and more sustainable energy research, consumption and generation. In turn global emissions are projected to rise by 1% a year to 2035 or 25% over that period.
Extended exposure to NO2 and CO include decreased concentration, nausea and most dangerous respiratory issues. The EPA designates primary standard at 100ppb (parts per billion) averaged over an hour. The current national average range from about 10-2 ppb. However in more confined spaces with heavy traffic or extended exposure or increased emissions such as parking garages, services garages, sally ports or loading and unloading zones these levels can reach dangerous levels quickly.
More people, more spaces, and more spaces with people, vehicles and elevated emissions, means the need to monitor dangerous gas levels and automate ventilation to adjust ppb levels will continue to grow.
What if there was a way to monitor these levels in a way that actually cut overall project costs for projects such as parking garages, sally ports or similar structures?
The GWN Series innovative design from Veris Industries does just that. The GWN features a modular, field adjustable design and increase flexibility for easy integration. With removable sensor elements the current series offers both NO2 and CO sensors.
NO2 Sensor for monitoring spaces where diesel power engines are used including but not limited to diesel vehicles or generators used in spaces such as parking garages, vehicle bays, loading zones and/or sally ports
CO sensors more commonly used for monitoring spaces where gasoline engines, gasoline powered furnaces, gasoline powered water heaters, gasoline generators are present.
Status indication LEDs & Relay outputs provide low, high, and sensor end-of-life signals
Easy sensor replacement with removable element
Field selectable output & setpoint allows installer or technician to adjust to application, instead of having to purchase multiple products
Removable Terminal Blocks allows for installation to be parted out or unit to be removed with easy for maintenance or sensor replacement
Standalone, or integrate into a control system via 4-20mA, 0-5V ,or 0-10V with relay, or relay only.
