CO sensors from SPEC, which are mainly applied in smart buildings and air quality measurement, have obtained UL certification. Through UL independent tests, SPEC’s product 3SP-CO-1000 is confirmed to be compliant with UL2034 and UL2075.
Elements with UL certification boost customer’s confidence on using CO sensor 3SP-CO-1000 and other SPEC’s products.products. Usually, CO detection are implemented by electro-chemical sensors for their low power consumption, long service life, high selectivity and sensitivity.
Many commercial electro-chemical sensors in the market are large in size, expensive in price and low in performance, making them hard to be integrated into new applications.SPEC’s patented “silk-print” technology effectively reduces the size of conventional electro-chemical sensors while not lowering their performance, allowing them to be applied in smart homes and IoT. Also, SPEC’s capability enables mass production to cater to all these applications. The patented technologies of SPEC provide possibilities of new applications of outdoor air quality measurement. South Coast Air Quality Management Bureau of California have recently compared the performance of our CO sensor to their high-performance NDIR CO detector which values 10 thousand dollars and is calibrated once a month. The measurement level collected over two months from 80 ppb to 1 ppm have shown a relevancy of over 83%.
The newly come UL certifications have attracted many new customers to use our CO sensors in their security products. The high sensitivity allows this sensors to be applied in situations of harsh requirements, such as measurement of indoor air quality, outdoor pollution and fire alarm.
About Carbon Monoxide
CO is a high-toxic gas of no color, no smell and no taste. CO is one of the most important reason of poisoning accidents, and an important source of global air pollution. For now, 36 states of the USA require their dwellers to install CO detector in their homes, but only 12 states require them to be installed in hotel rooms, and 5 states in school buildings. Existing CO detectors are only for life safety (alarm when the concentration is over 400 ppm) but do nothing about explosure in low concentration of CO. Evidences show that such explosure (e.g. 20ppm) will lead to various health issues and do harm to pregnant women and their babies, cardiac patients, asthmatic patients, the weak, the old and even healthy people who do aerobics exercises. CO sensors, especially when used in smart city network, inter-connected buildings, smart homes, cellphones and other wireless wearable devices, can make people be aware of the air quality and safety of where they live in.
