The quality of the air we breathe indoor (Indoor Air Quality, IAQ) is typically defined by the air chemical or gas composition and particulates. The sensors available today for sensing the gas composition of IAQ have many features and options.

There is a wide application base for IAQ sensing with the most common being the regulation of HVAC ventilation systems for lower energy cost. Using an IAQ controller to signal a demand-control-ventilation system will result in a metered volume of fresh air, providing an acceptable air quality at lower cost. IAQ control is also useful for hydroponics and storing food.

Typical applications of IAQ sensors include;

• HVAC – ventilation control, schools, hospitals, airports, hotels, public places
• Agriculture - seed culture, greenhouses, hydroponics, seed cultivation
• Food Industry - storing vegetables, kitchens, restaurants
• Industrial, Lab and Medical

Wall and duct mounted IAQ sensors have progressed significantly over the past decade. In addition to the traditional control of temperature and humidity, commercially available IAQ sensors will now detect;

CO - carbon monoxide
CO2 - carbon dioxide
VOC - volatile organic compounds
O3 - ozone

Configurations are available ranging from a basic transmitting sensor that outputs an analog signal to a full feature sensor with audible alarm, RS-485 communication and multicolor backlit LCD readout indicating gas level. Units are even available with a hand held remote control for setup and operation. The following are examples of IAQ sensor configurations.
