How long do co2 sensors last

A carbon dioxide sensor is a device that detects the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Want to know how long do co2 sensors last? First, you need to understand the working principle of the sensor. The carbon dioxide sensors produced by Fosensor can be divided into Solid-state electrolyte CO2 Sensor and NDIR CO2 Sensor Module according to the working principle. Different sensors have different application environments and different service lifes. This article mainly uses NDIR CO2 Sensor. Introduce to the main.

NDIR CO2 Sensor Module

CO2 Sensor Module working principle

NDIR CO2 Sensor Module uses the principle of infrared absorption to transfer infrared radiation energy to a window, and then passes through a set of infrared filters to allow infrared energy of a specific wavelength to pass through a concentration measurement cavity. The concentration measurement cavity is filled with a certain thickness. When the carbon dioxide molecules in the air enter the concentration measurement cavity, they will absorb infrared radiation of a specific wavelength, weakening the infrared radiation that passes through the carbon dioxide absorption layer, and then pass through a detector to detect the remaining energy of the infrared rays. This measures the concentration of carbon dioxide in the air.

How long do co2 sensors last?

The service life of the NDIR CO2 Sensor Module depends on many factors, such as usage environment, frequency of use, storage conditions, etc. Generally speaking, the life of infrared carbon dioxide sensors can reach about 10 years, but they may also fail prematurely due to various reasons.

Factors that affect sensor life include:

1.Environmental conditions of use: Environmental temperature, humidity and other conditions will affect the life of the sensor. Generally speaking, the higher the operating temperature, the shorter the service life, and the opposite is true.

2.Frequency of use: Under high-frequency use, the mechanical components inside the sensor will suffer more wear, thus shortening the service life of the sensor.

3.Storage conditions: If the sensor is stored in a humid and high-temperature environment for a long time when not in use, the internal components of the sensor will be damaged and the service life will be shortened.

4.Other pollutants in the use environment: Some corrosive gases, dust and other pollutants can cause damage to the internal components of the sensor and affect its service life.
