Vaisala introduces a new carbon dioxide meter for applications with higher CO2 concentrations, such as for life science incubators, cold storages and fruit and vegetable transportation and storage.
The Vaisala Carbocab Carbon Dioxide Probe GMP251 is a stand-alone probe for measuring carbon dioxide in all applications where stable and accurate %-level CO2 measurements are needed. Used is a new type of infrared (IR) light source instead of incandescent light bulb, which should extend the lifetime.
The Measurement range covers from 0 to 20 % CO2. The intelligent stand-alone probe provides both analog and digital outputs. The operating temperature ranges from -40 to +60 °C, and the probe has IP65 classified housing: these features make it suitable for a wide range of measurement applications, for example, in wash-down areas. The GMP251 is optimal in CO2 incubator control and monitoring in life science applications, in which carbon dioxide levels are used to control pH levels and to optimize cell cultivation environments.
