Identifying poorly ventilated areas using CO2 monitors during the Coronavirus pandemic

CO2 monitoring system to mitigate transmission of COVID-19 in schools, public buildings and the work place.

Recently the UK HSE - Health and Safety Executive - a governmental body, published some guidelines on ventilation and air conditioning to help mitigate Coronavirus in buildings.

According to the HSE, the priority for your risk assessment is to identify areas of your workplace that are usually occupied and poorly ventilated. You should prioritise these areas for improvement to reduce the risk of aerosol transmission of COVID-19.

Although CO2 levels are not a direct measure of possible exposure to COVID-19, checking levels using a monitor can help identify poorly ventilated areas.

The Electrex Sensing & Sani Solutions allow the sanitization of environments and surfaces using Ozone and also the monitoring of environmental parameters.

The solution is able to create alerts/alarms (E-mail, Telegram) and interconnect with HVAC systems (also via API, MQTT protocols) optimizing ventilation and also their energy consumption.

Specifically for CO2 monitoring, our solutions include both non-dispersive infrared (NDIR) CO2 monitors as well as CO2 Equivalent monitors.

Instantaneous or ‘snapshot’ CO2 readings can be misleading, so it is important to have a permanent monitoring and control system that is able to interconnect with other systems (HVAC) in the building.

The Electrex Solutions allows a simple management of the environmental conditions and thanks to its devices with built-in web server data can be consulted remotely via smartphone, tablet or PC.
