Answer for IoT gas detection

Renesas has expanded its environmental sensor portfolio with its first family of thermopile-based detectors with integrated optical filters for optical (NDIR) CO₂ sensors. The four new single and dual-channel analog detectors are designed for use in industrial, medical and IoT applications that require reliability, accuracy and operation in high temperatures.

Renesas’ senior director Sensing Solutions, IoT and Infrastructure Business Unit, Uwe Guenther, said: “With more people spending longer hours indoors during current events, many home, healthcare, educational and work environments are adopting HVAC systems and equipment with increasingly sensitive detection features to ensure healthy CO₂ levels.

“Renesas’ new family of thermopile-based detectors support the development of the highest performance CO₂ sensors, enabling manufacturers of HVAC systems and other medical and industrial applications to meet the changing requirements for CO₂ detection at an affordable price point, delivering real-time feedback for these mission-critical applications while maintaining high accuracy and reliability.”
