aSENSE™

aSENSE is an advanced transmitter for installation in the climate zone. It measures both CO2 concentration and temperature.  The data is transmitted to a BMS system or controller and can be configured with UIP Software. Detected values are transformed into two analogue output signals that can be transmitted to a system master or DDC. aSENSE is available both with and without LCD display for FIXED installation in the climate zone as well as in the ventilation duct.

Key benefits

-Maintenance-free in normal applications.
-Contributes to lower energy costs when it is applied in a Demand Control Ventilation (DCV) strategy.
-Internal automatic self diagnostics.
-2 analogue outputs as standard (V/mA). Relay output as option.
-Cost-efficient RS485 communication as option.
-Internal 2-channel logger as option.

 

Applications

aSENSEis designed to control ventilation by transmitting the measured carbon dioxide and temperature value to the system´s Master or DDC. The transmitter is flexible and suits many different ventilation strategies.  According to most building regulations, the fresh air flow should, in rooms where people stay more than occasionally, be at least 7 litres/sec and person.
If the room occupants are adults with a light work-load and the outdoor CO2 concentration is 350 ppm, this airflow answers directly to an in-door CO2 concentration of 1040 ppm.
According to National Boards of  Occupational Safety and Health, the CO2 concentration can therefore be used as an indicator of the Indoor Air Quality (IAQ).  A CO2 concentration below 1000 ppm should then always be the aim.

UIP 5

The program enables you to setup and adjust meters produced by SenseAir AB. Using the "User interface program" it's possible to log meter measurements and to control meter functions. It's also possible to save and restore complete meter configurations to/from files.
UIP5 currently supports the platforms:
• eSENSE (K50)
• aSENSE (K40, not all versions)
• K33
• K30
• K22 (-OC and -LO)
