Air Quality Sensors

Air quality often refers to carbon dioxide (CO2), volatile organic compounds (VOCs), relative humidity, and temperature. In addition to offering CO2 and VOC sensors, PowerWise offers an advanced array of sensors to monitor other air quality characteristics, such as particulate, acetone, ammonia, benzene, carbon monoxide, chlorine, methane, and many others.

For measuring air quality in rooms, these sensors should be installed in 3 to 6 feet above the floor and within a thermal zone. When installed in ventilation systems, the duct-style sensors can monitor air quality, temperature, and airflow.

The software alerts and reports on air quality levels. PowerWise offers wired and wireless sensors. Wired sensors require CAT5 / CAT6 wiring to a data acquisition device or a gateway. And, commonly, the wired sensors are powered through the wiring. Sensors are often surface-mount and are smaller than a thermostat.

See our list of sensors.

Temperature Sensors

Temperature sensors are typically inexpensive and have many options for the specific application, including:

  • Barrel sensor for pipe temperature or room temperature
  • Duct sensors for ventilation systems
  • Flush-mount sensor into drywall, so the sensor is hidden and can be painted
  • Outdoor temperature sensor with radiation shield
  • Surface mount in a case, battery powered, and wireless communication to the gateway
  • Thermowell with a sensor inserted to measure fluid temperatures in pipes
  • Waterproof and suitable for refrigeration applications

Some of the air quality sensors mentioned previously also include temperature monitoring.

See temperature sensors available from PowerWise.

Read how these sensors and controls are used with heating, cooling, and refrigeration systems.
